Pictures and Narrative submitted by Joyce Betts

We made over 50 new friends at our Open House on Oct. 14.  Attendees ranged in age from 14 to 70+ and their backgrounds were diverse: some were in the Village house hunting, some were visiting for the first time, some had lived in the Village anywhere from three days to 17 years, some were golfers, some were tennis players looking for a sport that would be easier on their joints, one was a hunter, and one was a young, excited Fountain Lake student with her mother.

Twenty of them came to the free clinic for beginners on the following Tuesday.  Watch out for them on the courts and make them welcome!  Some of them appear in the following slideshow of photos.
