Recreation Committee


Donna Hand, Secretary



The Recreation Committee bids a fond farewell to Helen Ashby,

who was the “decorator extraordinaire” and lead for the Pool

Party and Valentine’s Day events, and extends a warm welcome

to Rosemary Gallo.

We look forward to sharing this busy time of year with family

and friends. Perhaps a Tidewater New Year’s Eve Party will help

welcome 2020 with hopes of smooth sailing for our community.

Read on for new events that are planned for the new year!

returns running from 6 - 8 PM. The format is similar to our

Cabana nights when each person brings an appetizer or
