The ODC and the Welcome Committee will act as hosts and hostess, and we will mix “NEW RESIDENTS” among “established residents.” You do not have to have anyone to come with because we will be arranging the tables so that new and established residents are mixed.

We will also have an “introduction” to the committees. This will be an opportunity for you to “meet” the committees and talk to their representatives to learn about what they do, and how they contribute to our community.

In addition, because it is a TANGLEWOOD FRIENDS evening we will be supplying the “main dish” which will be pizza. 2 pizzas will be supplied to each table. Attendees may bring a salad or a side dish to share with their table.

We will, of course, have a 50/50. (It is after all the ODC’s fund raiser event. ) There will be one winner for the 50/50, AND that ticket will go back into the pot to win one of the many door prizes which are:

TANGLEWOOD DANCE COMMITTEE NEWS DECEMBER 2018
Come and enjoy the music of Jay Smith on Saturday, December 8th. Jay is an exceptional guitarist and singer. He plays a variety of music for your dancing and listening enjoyment. It will be a great time to reconnect with your northern friends.

The December dance for the last 5 years has been dedicated to helping the Highlands County Child Advocacy Program.

This program works with and oversees the care of children in foster care. Some of our residents, like Jackie Shrake, volunteer their time working as Guardian ad Litems for individual children in this program. They visit their children monthly, go to court to represent the child, take them to appointments, and at Christmas time they deliver the donated Christmas presents and gift cards.

Each December our dance committee donates the proceeds of the 50/50 raffle to buying toys and gift cards. We ask residents to help us by bringing/dropping off unwrapped toys to the club house lobby starting at 6 P.M. December 8th.

If you don’t like to shop, we also accept cash or Walmart gift cards, and will do the shopping for you. With the cash we purchase $15 Walmart gift cards usually for the older youth.

Last year we sold chances on pictures donated by artist and resident Steve Waitkus, and we plan to donate these funds in his name to this cause. Thanks in advance to Steve Waitkus and all residents for donating to our efforts. We want to bring a smile to a child on Christmas morning.

Remember the cost of the dance is $5 for residents with name badge, and $6 for non-residents. Bring your own drinks and snacks and ice will be furnished on all tables.

TIS SEASON- VOLUNTEERISM AND GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”— Audrey Hepburn

For many of us, we began the New Year with long lists of resolutions and the determination to lead better lives. Unfortunately, the inherent benefits of giving back to the community are often neglected. Many times, resolutions are quickly broken and abandoned, and we are left feeling discouraged.

Try something different in 2019! Consider adding volunteerism to your list of resolutions. As a volunteer, it is easy to stay motivated. Simply put, when you do good, you feel good. The warm feeling of satisfaction inspires you and drives you to keep the feeling alive. “The Health Benefits of Volunteering: A Review of Recent Research” has found that helping others significantly improves ones well being and longevity. According to this report, volunteers have greater longevity, higher functional ability, lower rates of depression and less incidence of heart disease.

As a volunteer, you are never truly alone. You belong to a large family of people dedicated to helping their community and the people within it. The friendships formed through volunteering are strong and filled with pride. At the end of the day, you will know that you have truly made a difference in the lives of at-risk seniors.

Here in Highlands County, over 40% of the population is 60 years of age and better.

NU-HOPE Elder Care Services is a non-profit organization that assists over 800 seniors to remain in their homes annually. There are many opportunities to give back to older adults at risk of nursing home placement by supporting NU-HOPE.

Volunteers are needed to deliver meals to home bound seniors, help in and donate to the thrift stores (which help fund the services provided to seniors), and lead activities at our group dining meal sites. Volunteers also help with special events and at fundraisers. With neighbors helping neighbors, you are making a difference in our community.

If you are interested in learning how you can become a NU-HOPE volunteer, please contact Carol Stoll at (863) 382-2134 or email stollc@nuhope.org

Becoming a volunteer is likely to be one resolution that you will gladly keep.

BUNCO
Just a reminder about Bunco in the Clubhouse on Thursday, Dec. 20. Doors open at 6:00 – play starts promptly at 6:30. Don’t forget your badge!
