(“THE VILLAGES. FLORIDA’S FRIENDLIEST HOMETOWN. THE VILLAGES.”) WELCOME TO THIS MONTH’S EDITION OF THE VILLAGES
VMAIL! IF YOU HAVEN’T HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT
OUR NEWEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN THE VILLAGES OF MONARCH GROVE AND LINDEN, NOW WOULD BE AN
EXCELLENT TIME TO DO SO. THAT’S RIGHT HARPER. WITH ALL THESE NEW EXCITING RECREATION ADDITIONS
COMING ONLINE, THERE’S GOING TO BE SO MUCH TO ENJOY IN THESE NEW AREAS. WHAT DO YOU SAY FIRST TO FIVE GETS TO LEAD
THE FIRST LEG OF THE TOUR? YOU’RE ON BUD! THERE’S SO MUCH OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE TO EXPLORE
AT THE RIVERBEND RECREATION CENTER! FROM PICKLEBALL AND TENNIS COURTS…TO BOCCE,
SHUFFLEBOARD AND CORN TOSS… TO AREAS FOR BEACH TENNIS AND SAND VOLLEYBALL… TO A RESORT-STYLE FAMILY POOL AND FIRE PIT…THERE
REALLY IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE! RON AND I ARE HERE TO DEMONSTRATE SAND VOLLEYBALL
AT OUR GRAND OPENING HERE AT RIVERBEND. WE’RE AT THE RUPERT DOG PARK TODAY. AND IT’S THE RIBBON CUTTING. AND IT’S A BRIGHT SUNNY DAY. WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL PLACE TO COME BRING THE
PUPS AND THE DOGS AND LET THEM RUN. I’M IN THIS BEAUTIFUL NEW REC ROOM AND IT
IS REALLY GORGEOUS. SO THESE PEOPLE IN THIS AREA ARE REALLY FORTUNATE. THEY CAN COME ON DOWN AND PLAY SOME 8-BALL. I THINK IT’S BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE THE COLORS, AND IT’S VERY BEACHY KIND
OF A FEEL. AND IT’S JUST BEAUTIFUL. WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO SPENDING TIME HERE. SO YOU CAN SEE IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY. AND LOT
OF PEOPLE OUT HERE. LOT OF ACTIVITIES. I HEAR THE PICKLEBALL GOING THIS WAY, AND
VOLLEYBALL GOING THAT WAY. SAW A BUNCH OF DOGS WITH BANDANAS, LOOKS LIKE
A GREAT TIME. THEY HAD A LOT OF FUN. RUNNING IN THE OPEN FIELD, PLAYING AND CATCHING
FRISBEES AND BALLS, AND MEETING ALL THE OTHER FRIENDS THAT THEY HAVE. ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO PICKLEBALL, IT’S JUST
ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU’VE GOT TO TRY OUT. WE HAVE SEVERAL OF THE EXECUTIVE GOLF COURSES,
WE’VE TRIED THEM ALREADY. AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE 18-HOLE GOLF COURSE
WHEN THEY GET THAT BUILT OUT THIS WAY. BUT, AND DEFINITELY THE POOL. WE MET AT THE DUDLEY DOG PARK. THERE’S A GANG OF US HERE THAT GO THERE TWICE
A DAY. AND, IT’S A GREAT PLACE TO MEET PEOPLE AND GET ALONG WITH THE OTHER DOGS. ACTUALLY WE PURCHASED IN FENNEY SEVERAL MONTHS
AGO SO WE LOVE THE AREA ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE. IT’S AMAZING HOW QUICKLY EVERYTHING IS EXPANDING
AND GROWING AND BUILDING ALL THE AMENITIES THAT WE HAVE HERE THAT YOU CAN SEE. SO WE’RE VERY HAPPY ABOUT IT. THE VILLAGES DEFINITELY HAS AN ACTIVITY FOR
ANYBODY. MY HUSBAND HAS A BAD BACK. YES, HE CAN’T DO MUCH OF THESE BIG SPORTS
ACTIVITIES. BUT THERE’S PLENTY OF GAMES THAT HE CAN PLAY
INSIDE THE RECREATION CENTER. THERE’S CARD GAMES, THERE’S MEXICAN TRAIN,
THERE’S UKULELE CLUBS, THERE’S ALL KINDS OF CLUBS. SO ANYTHING FOR ANYBODY. IF IT’S NOT A CLUB THAT YOU’RE INTERESTED
IN, YOU CAN START YOUR OWN CLUB AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THREE PEOPLE START YOUR OWN CLUB
FOR WHATEVER YOU’RE INTERESTED IN. IT’S GREAT. WELL, I USED TO COME HERE FOR THE WEATHER. THEN I CAME HERE FOR THE SPORTS. THEN I CAME HERE FOR THE PEOPLE. CAUSE I WENT BACK AND FORTH FOR YEARS. SO THEN I GOT SMART AND JUST STAYED HERE YEAR-ROUND. SO IT’S JUST WONDERFUL. I GUESS I LOVE LIVING HERE MORE THAN ANYTHING. (LAUGHS) EIGHT. NO NO NO NO. OH. WAIT A MINUTE. LISTEN. YOU CAN’T. YOU ASKED FOR EIGHTS. WELL I HAVE THREE. SO I’VE GOT FOUR OF A KIND. YES, SO LET’S PUT THAT HERE. HOWEVER, BUT YOU CAN’T DRAW AND ASK. YOU DON’T ASK TWICE. (LAUGHS) I’M LISTENING TO MY COACH. WELL YOU CAN IF YOU’RE SNEAKY. (LAUGHS) I’M ASKING MY LIFE COACH OVER HERE. WE’RE SURROUNDED BY SHARKS. I’M TELLING YA, THAT’S WHY I’M DROWNING. AND OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AREN’T THE ONLY THING
OFFERED AT RIVERBEND RECREATION CENTER. IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO START A NEW SCRAPBOOKING
CLUB, OR SCHEDULE A MEETING WITH YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SOCIAL GROUP, YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. THE VILLAGES DESIGN TEAM HAS BEEN HARD AT
WORK TO GET THE CENTER UP AND READY FOR THE OFFICIAL GRAND OPENING. INSIDE RIVERBEND RECREATION CENTER, YOU’LL
FIND BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED MEETING AND GATHERING ROOMS, AS WELL AS A BRAND NEW BILLIARDS ROOM. AND NEXT TO THE OUTDOOR COURTS, YOU’LL FIND
THE RUPERT CANINE PARK! FEATURING WIDE OPEN SPACES FOR DOGS OF ALL
SIZES TO RUN AND PLAY, AS WELL AS SOME COVERED SPACE FOR OWNERS TO RELAX IN THE SHADE. AND JUST A PATHWAY’S JOURNEY FROM RIVERBEND
AND RUPERT IS THE BRAND NEW SWALLOWTAIL RECREATION AREA. HEY MAN, ARE YOU GOING TO HELP ME OUT TODAY,
OR ARE YOU JUST GOING TO HANG OUT BY THE POOL? COMPLIMENTING THE OUTDOOR BEAUTY OF MONARCH
GROVE, YOU CAN TAKE A DIP IN THE ADULT POOL, OR JOIN YOUR FRIENDS FOR A ROUND OF BOCCE,
SHUFFLEBOARD OR CORN TOSS AT THE SWALLOWTAIL RECREATION AREA. NICE SHOT MAN. HEY HARPER IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN…CAMP
VILLAGES IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! CAMP VILLAGES IS SUCH A BIG HIT YEAR AFTER
YEAR BECAUSE WE’RE MAKING MEMORIES. FOR THE RESIDENTS, FOR THEIR FAMILIES. THESE ARE THINGS THAT KIDS ARE GOING TO REMEMBER
FOR YEARS AFTER THEY’VE ALREADY DONE THEM. MY FAVORITE PART OF CAMP VILLAGES IS THE OPPORTUNITY
TO GET TO MAKE THESE MEMORIES WITH SOME OF THE KIDS. I’VE HEARD STORIES ABOUT HOW THEY’VE BEEN
DOING, THIS IS THE NINETEENTH YEAR THAT WE’RE DOING CAMP VILLAGES, AND I’VE HEARD A LOT
OF STORIES ABOUT KIDS THAT HAVE BEEN HERE TEN YEARS AGO, EVEN NINETEEN YEARS AGO, AND
THEY’RE BRINGING THEIR KIDS TO COME AND PARTICIPATE IN CAMP VILLAGES. GRAB THE BROCHURE THAT WE HAVE. THE LITTLE PAMPHLET, EVERY RECREATION CENTER
WILL HAVE IT. AND JUST SIT DOWN AND GO THROUGH IT. AND FIND ALL KINDS OF FUN THINGS IN THERE. WE OFFER SO MANY DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES. FIND THE STUFF THAT THEY MIGHT BE INTERESTED
IN, THE GRANDKIDS MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN. THAT’S DEFINITELY A GREAT PLACE TO START. WITH SO MUCH GOING ON AROUND HERE, DON’T FORGET
TO CHECK OUT THE JUNE SOCIAL CALENDAR FOR ALL THE GREAT SOCIAL EVENTS TAKING PLACE AT
FENNEY AND RIVERBEND RECREATION CENTERS! WE THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON THIS MONTH’S
VILLAGES VMAIL! WE’LL SEE YOU AROUND TOWN… …LOVIN’ THE LIFESTYLE! (LAUGHS) AW MAN, COME ON! (“THE VILLAGES”)
