Temperatures are cooling down, the breezes are coming off the Gulf and the windows are opening around Citrus County. See what great events and dinners we have planned for September.
Another summer has come and gone as we are now into the month of September. The kids have all gone back to school, the baseball season is winding down, and football is about to start heating up.
Not only are new seasons kicking off on a national level, many of our friends and neighbors are returning from their summers up north ready to participate in all of the activities and events happening around the Villages of Citrus Hills this month.
As usual, there is no shortage of fun things to do happening throughout the community. Let’s take a look at some of the events and activities you won’t want to miss this September.
The social events will get started early this month with Dinner and a Show in the Hampton Room on Thursday, September 3. Charlie De and Ken Brady will be performing at 7 pm following a dinner of Beef Tips Marsala and Chicken Cordon Bleu at 6 pm.
Trivia Challenge is back on Tuesday, September 15 in the Hampton Room. Last month’s winners were the Irish Rogues, but this month is anyone’s game. Dinner for this event starts at 5:45 pm and the trivia starts flying around 6:30 pm.
Another really fun social activity planned for this month is the Boogie & Blues Dance Party on Friday, September 18. The Smoking’ Torpedoes will be playing all of your favorite blues songs in the Hampton Room starting at 7 pm.
