The holiday season has officially arrived and you can expect the last few weeks of 2015 to be filled with excitement!
Between last minute shopping and preparing for our own holiday parties, it can be hard to find time to participate in all the events and activities during the month of December at the Villages of Citrus Hills. But we’ve still planned many things around our community this month that we hope you can enjoy.
Here are some of the wonderful activities and events happening this month.
One of the early events is on December 8 at the Holiday Party taking place at Skyview Restaurant. There will be live 50’s music performed by the Jack Sigler Trio and a terrific menu featuring Carved Salmon Wellington and Rosemary Pepper Roast Sirloin, along with a variety of starters, salads, sides, and desserts.
The Hampton Room will also be hosting a New Year’s Eve Celebration on Thursday, December 31. This event will be formal (black tie optional) and includes live music, a live feed of “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” and a delicious Prime Rib and Baked Chicken dinner.
It doesn’t happen until next month, but you may want to get it on your calendar now. There will be an exciting Casino Night event happening on Thursday, January 14 in the Hampton Room. Players can use their chips to play blackjack, poker, slots, roulette, and craps. Those chips can then be cashed in for all kinds of prizes!
Arts & Education
The Citrus Hills Vacationers Club will be meeting again on Saturday, December 12 at 1 pm in the Activity Center. This month’s guest speaker will be Zelda Huyser who is an expert on Safari vacations.
Coffee & Canvas will be back on Thursday, December 17 from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm in the Activity Center. This month, artist Vanessa Fuller-Brown will be leading the class in replicating Vincent Van Gogh’s famous “Wheat Field with Cypresses.”
Golf & Tennis
Husband and wife teams will be hitting the links at Skyview on Monday December 7 to compete in the Husband & Wife Championship. This will be a better ball tournament where the men hit from the white tees and the ladies hit from the red tees.
Other golf tournaments happening this month include the St. Nick Open on December 12 at The Oaks course, the 1st VIP Card Tournament on December 14 at The Oaks course, and the Holiday Golf Tournament on December 20 at the Brentwood course.
There will also be a free beginner’s tennis clinic held at the Skyview Tennis Center on Tuesday, December 8 at 11 am. No skills or equipment are required, just bring a pair of tennis shoes!

If you are looking for even more great steak, you won’t have to look too far. The Skyview Restaurant will also be having a Steak Night special with Filet Mignon, Salmon Steak, New York Strip Steak, and Ribeye on Tuesday, December 15.
In addition to the great steak specials happening at the Skyview Restaurant this month, The Grille will also be holding a Holiday Party on December 19 and a New Year’s Eve Dinner with live music on December 31.
