As Mary Ann and I were enjoying the entertainer at our Over 55 Community clubhouse doing a Frankie Valli tribute, I observed everyone was having fun and really enjoying the show. The entertainer was really out in the audience a lot and getting our participation. After the show lots of people said “this was fun“, he was “really entertaining” and the show “was enjoyable“. Why? Was it because he was that great of a singer? I don’t think so. Here’s why.
We have enjoyed Thanksgiving at our clubhouse 2 or 3 times since moving here and always had a good time. What a nice benefit from living at our Over 55 Community! Here is our post from a previous Thanksgiving.
Our Thanksgiving at the clubhouse was enjoyable. We sat at a table with our friends Larry and Dottie, Wayne and Linda, and some new residents from Connecticut. We had such a good time talking, we were the last ones to leave.
As you can see by the top photo, there was plenty of food and the turkey was great.
Petty good crowd on hand, but since it was residents only this year, there were some empty spaces where more tables could have gone if they had allowed family members like last year. Maybe next year they will.
Sure was nice to come back home and not to worry about washing dishes! Since I started my race walking training for the National Senior Games, I didn’t care for second helpings anyway. Mary Ann prepared a white chicken chili for a late dinner and that was great. By the way, Mary Ann shared 5 things we were thankful for and living here at VDC was on both our lists! How about that.
On the way out I spotted the great Christmas tree in the clubhouse lobby.
Up next will be the Holiday Parties. There is one for our street, one for our section, and one for the community.
Also I spotted this on “The Daily” section of our web site.
Adult Gingerbread House Decorating Night – Free
Bring your neighbors and turn up the holiday magic with a fun-filled evening of Gingerbread House Decorating. Bring your own gingerbread house and decorating supplies (icing, candies, gumdrops, etc.). RSVP at the front desk.
Well this sounds like a photo opportunity in the making! I will have to pop in and see what is going on.
I am trying to get Mary Ann to take this class at the clubhouse so we can get a discount on our auto insurance, but haven’t convinced her yet. AARP DRIVER SAFETY CLASS – THURSDAY
Another photo op is:
Breakfast With Santa, Saturday
The Austins and It’s Showtime do such a good job lining up talent for us. I bet this is going to be good. I need to talk with my ticket agent (Mary Ann) about getting us tickets to this.
It’s Showtime Presents On Saturday, Lindy and Greg will perform. The Austin’s saw this couple on a cruise and were so impressed, they wanted to bring them to VDC.
We already got our tickets to the New Year’s Eve party. We saw Butch and the Buckheads a few months ago and then were good!
New Year’s Eve Celebration! December 31, – 9pm – 12:30am
DANCE PARTY: This event will be upstairs only, the ballroom will feature Butch and the Buckheads, returning to VDC for another amazing performance! If you love a great dance party, THIS is the place for you! Dance, Dance, Dance!
Mary Ann says she heard The Everly Brothers tribute show is coming soon and she wants tickets! We will have to track this show down and get her some tickets.
Plenty of Activities going on this Holiday season here at Village at Deaton Creek.
PS: this morning I thought this was a red bird (cardinal) on my neighbor patio railing but when I zoomed in, I see it is lovely rose.
