We will again be attempting to follow somewhat of an agenda, so we are able to fit in all the “fun” we have planned for the day! We will begin the day at 10:00 AM; and will have greeters and name tags available at that time.


We will be serving lunch at 12:00 Noon. You will be able to place your order for lunch by contacting Joan Wiseman at [352]750-6885 or email your order to . Please place your order for lunch by April 15. Please bring your beverage of choice, and we will have ice available. Lunch will be at a cost of approximately $6.50.


We plan a group photo at 1:13 PM. So please plan to arrive prior to this time, so we may include everyone attending in the picture.


After lunch we will have a Bocci Ball Tournament. Teams for Bocci will be drawn from a hat. If you prefer, you can just spend time catching up with old friends!


We would love to have everyone share in this “fun” day with us, so why not plan on a vacation in Florida in April in 2016.
