The Placid Lakes Social Circle will be attending the June 11 matinee performance of “Mid Life Crisis” at the Palm Theater in Fort Myers, and dining at 11:45 a.m. at a buffet dinner. The group will be leaving by bus, and reservations are being accepted by May 15. Call Joyce Briski at 863-699-6331 or Bonnie at 863-465-4888 to reserve a spot. The cost is $65 per person which includes the buffet dinner, play, tips and gratuities, and the bus ride. “Mid Life Crisis” is a hilarious comedy. Sounds like a winner. All details and itineraries will be available in May, and we have front row seats! Our next meeting is May 8. Be there.

The Dalton Gang will have a Cook-Out at Tobler Park on Saturday, April 26 starting at 1 p.m. Members dine free and guests will be charged $5. If you are bringing guests, please call Joyce at 863-699-6331.

The Wednesday Line Dance group is looking for a volunteer instructor. After a wonderful, successful run of line dancing instruction, Dee Grayber will be leaving us and Placid Lakes for a new adventure with husband Phil. They will travel the country and enjoy retirement. We wish them well. The Line Dance group is a fun group, getting together for exercise and fellowship. We need someone by the first of May. Can you help us?

The Pioneers will meet Thursday, April 17 at 11:30 a.m. at Placid Lakes Country Club. We’re hearing a lot of good recollections from different sources, and we have to chronicle all the information and get it together. We need Pioneers at this meeting to do that as the “newbies” do not have the knowledge. Come out and make yourself heard if you want this group to continue.

The Lake Placid Ballroom Dancers will have Easter Bunny Hop on Saturday, April 19 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Lake Placid. Chrissy will be our featured musician. The Kinga-Kanteen will have soup, chili, hotdogs, and Jalapeño filled pretzels and chili-dogs available at 5 p.m.

The King-Birds are here for their annual nesting time and had a free-for-all with the Wood-ducks regarding their real-estate. The Wood-Ducks need more housing, so they tried to horn in on the King-Birds estate, the local developer noticed this through his binoculars and will be constructing another Wood-Duck estate. The King-Birds won, they had the original deed and kicked those Wood-Ducks off their property! Nobody messes with King-Birds.
