Our August Happy Hour was a full house, and the hors d’oevres were wonderful. Everyone got to touch base with each other, and over 25 people had dinner afterwards at HOA 2. A good time was had by all.

The JFG will be hosting its annual Break Fast after Yom Kippur on Saturday, September 30, at 6:15 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6:45 p.m. It will take place in HOA 1 Coyote Rooms North and South. (Vermilion Room floor is being replaced.)

On the menu are everyone’s favorites: Lox and bagels, sliced tomato and onion, cream cheese and cheese platter, tuna, fresh fruit, omelet station and, if you still have room, chocolate Babka. (Life is short – start with the Babka!)

The price is $29.50 per person for members, and checks should be sent to Laurie Colen at 63845 E Orangewood Lane and must be received by September 23. We hope everyone can join us to celebrate.

Our first potluck of the season will be on November 4 at the HOA 1 Activity Centre. Mark your calendars.

The upcoming Ladies’ Coffee will be on September 12 at 10:30 a.m. and is hosted by Rhonda Somers and Yvette Sabulsky at 39522 S. Winding Trail. RSVP to Yvette at or 215-514-2622 by September 6. To sign up to host a Ladies’ Coffee, please contact Leslie Nagy at
