Happy New Year! 2018 promises to be an event packed year for the Social Club. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out to volunteer for the Annual Chili Dinner and Golf Cart Parade. Thanks to all who helped with set up, made chili, dessert and all the stops, Eustis, Kinnow, Tangor & Torroco. There are to many names to put them all here, but we want you to know how much you are appreciated. This event could not have happened without you! We would also like to thank all our constant volunteers across our many different monthly events. With bingo, pancake breakfast and our monthly event, we have so many hard-working helpers. Thank you all for your non-wavering support! You make us look good! We had over 45 carts participate in the parade this year. A chilly evening kept some home, but many braved the temps to join in the nights events.  Congratulations to the top 3 best decorated golf carts!
