Once Labor Day weekend has come and gone, the summer is pretty much over.
But that’s not necessarily a bad thing for residents of the Villages of Citrus Hills. The month of September brings us the start of fall and a return to our normal schedules. It also brings new opportunities to join many of the local golf and tennis leagues and even some fun community events to attend.
Here are some of the activities and events that you won’t want to miss in the coming month:
There will be another Tech 101 seminar in the Activity Center Auditorium at 3:00 pm on Thursday, September 4. Guest speakers from PC’s-N-Parts will be discussing many different ways that you can back up all of your electronic data. If you have ever worried about losing all of your favorite pictures to a computer crash, this is a great chance to learn how to avoid that.
On Tuesday, September 16, there will be another edition of Trivia Challenge held in the Hampton Room. Frank and Shari Long and Greg and Charmaine Jagodinsky were the winners of the August Trivia Challenge, and they will look to defend their title this month! Trivia Challenge starts with a cash bar at 5:30 pm, then dinner is served at 5:45 pm and the game show starts at 6:30 pm.
The Tiki Bar will be hosting a New England Social on Tuesday, September 23 from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Anyone who has relocated from one of the New England states is invited to attend. This will be a great opportunity to connect with other former New Englanders!
NFL fans will have a special treat this year as the Tiki Bar will be the place to be for all the games. Each Sunday each of our 10 televisions will feature a game broadcast as part of the NFL Ticket! There will be plenty of great drink and food specials to go along with watching your favorite team. So, win or lose, you can’t go wrong.
Sports & Recreation
The Skyview Tennis Center will be holding another Free Beginner Tennis Clinic on Tuesday, September 9. All you have to do to participate is show up wearing tennis shoes. There will be racquets available to borrow and instructors teaching the basics of the game. The clinic will start at 11:00 am.
One of the biggest golf events of the month will be the Labor Day Open, which is scheduled for Saturday, September 13. The event will be played on The Oaks course at Citrus Hills with a shotgun start at 8:30 am. There will be beverages and lunch available after your round.
If you are looking for a more relaxed golf event, you will certainly enjoy the Three Clubs and a Putter event on Sunday, September 21. All golfers participating in this event will be restricted to using only four clubs throughout their entire round at one of the Citrus Hills courses.
For even more golfing excitement this month, there will be a Tiger Mixer on September 11, a Bonnie & Clyde Mixer on September 17, and Duffer’s Mixer on September 28.
Each of these mixers will start at 3:30 pm.
