Christmas Dinner: Day 2

We probably had a few more at the dinner tonight than last night, but I guessed that we had a total of 160-170 for the two together. In addition, about 15 meals were delivered to residents who could not leave their homes. We all owe Melody Murphy a huge vote of thanks in appreciation for all the work she did to organize this large event. She was helped by a large group of people who prepared various dishes and cooked hams and turkeys as well as those who helped to set up the hall for the meals and to clean up after. We also owe thanks to those who worked in the kitchen to get food ready to serve and those who served our meals. Continue reading

Christmas Parade

We had a hayride and the carolers had a great time

This year we held our Christmas Parade in the evening so lighted decorations on our golf carts would be better seen. We also joined the usual evening hayride with the Parade as a result. There were six decorated golf carts. We noticed a larger number of residents came out to wave or waved from their windows or front doors than at some of our daytime parades; that was good! Those in the parade enjoy being able to greet the wavers. Continue reading

Halloween Dinner.

The crowd at the dinner

Seventy-five Royal Palm folks and friends gathered at the Clubhouse to share in our annual Halloween Dinner. It was a fun time! Melody Murphy deserves great thanks for organizing the event, as do all the many volunteers who helped out in various ways. The dinner consisted of salad, garlic bread, and spaghetti with marinara sauce and meatballs and sausage. The sauce and meatballs were homemade earlier. And there were many dessert choices – some homemade, some store-bought. The serving went smoothly and people moved through the line quickly. Continue reading

Elaine Violette, 1st Prize

It was a great day for a parade in Royal Palm and there were eight entries: seven golf carts and one scooter. We assembled around 9:30 this morning and the parade got underway at 10:00. Many thanks to Dale Stroh for organizing the parade and to Fran Gran, Mary Jane Carraher, and Mike Wright for judging the entries. Marv and Suzanne Fitchett along with Mary McDougale led the group on a route that covered every street in the Park. Many residents came out to wave and greet the paraders. Continue reading
