Cheers has undergone some changes over the past month. Ginny Marr has stepped down after leading our social group for over 20 years. Ginny has dedicated so much of her time for this group and is such an inspiration to all of us. She has worked tirelessly in leading this group, and from all the kind words I have heard from others, I am sure that she is one of the reasons this social group continues to grow. A year ago, our membership was around 150. We now boast over 200 members, and we continue to grow. What a testament to Ginny as our leader. Mike Swoverland has agreed to take over our Cheers social group.
Cheers is a social club with membership of 200 and growing. We are open to singles in Sun Lakes, Springfield, SunBird, and Solera communities. Whether you are a year-round resident or visit us during the winter months, you are invited to become a part of the Cheers family. We offer many activities and programs, including social time, wine tasting, dining out, book club, games, golfing, and more.
With your $20 annual dues, you will be given access to the members-only activities and the chance to make many new friends. We look forward to having you come and visit our Thursday social hour. You won’t regret it. We have new members join almost every month. Our members come from all parts of the country or other parts of the world. We meet every Thursday at Oakwood Country Club in the Bradford Room from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Our attendance is anywhere from 35 to more than 60 members. Please join us.
Cheers Birthday Celebration: We meet once every quarter to celebrate members’ birthdays. Our last celebration was in February when we celebrated our members’ birthdays in January, February, and March. We have a nice dinner, cash bar, and entertainment, with a raffle for prizes.
Mah Jongg: Mah Jongg meets once a week at the Cottonwood pool to play. Please stop in at our Thursday social for dates and times.
Hand and Foot Cards: Cheers has a great card game called Hand and Foot. We play at the Oakwood Poolside the first and third Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m. If you are interested, please join us. If you don’t know how to play or haven’t played in a while, we would be happy to teach you or give you a refresher course. MaryAnn Fazio and Ramon Rubio co-host the game. So, drop by if you’re interested in playing, or to just drop by to see how much fun it could be.
Cheers Book Club: Cheers Book Club meets once a month to discuss the previous month’s books.
