Food Truck Tuesday!

The Food Trucks will be in the Raintree Clubhouse tomorrow from 4-8.  The vendors this week are THE MELT TRUCK and TASTE OF BRAZIL.    The weather looks a little cooler this week so grab your food and meet at the Gazebo at 5:30.  Hope to see you then.

Fountains Pontoon Boat Excursion

We’ve had great interest in our boating excursion around Raintree Lake and have two dates scheduled.  If you haven’t reserved a spot, you have an opportunity to still join in!  The two dates (with two times) selected are:
  • Wednesday, August 4  – 4:15 – 6:30 p.m.(3 spots open)
  • Wednesday, August 4 – 6:45 – 9:00 p.m. (full)
  • Wednesday, August 18 – 4:15 – 6:30 p.m. (7 spots open)  Right now, total availability
  • Wednesday, August 18 – 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.(full)
Please consider an afternoon excursion if you are interested.  There is a partial canopy on the boat and with the lake breeze, it is nice. This was my experience last week when I sailed with some friends.
Currently, the cost per person will be $12.50 with 20 going.  If others join in, the cost will go down a bit.  I will confirm the cost per person with all the boaters after the final count is determined.
For those of you who have contacted me with interest, please let me know if you have NOT seen a confirmation of your date/time from me.  I believe I have contacted everyone, but it doesn’t hurt to double/triple check!
Thank you,

Food Truck Tuesday!

Hey Fountains Residents, why not take a break from cooking on Tuesdays the rest of the summer?   Why don’t we get our food from the food trucks in the Raintree Clubhouse parking lot and then gather at the gazebo and eat together and visit.  This week the vendors are Burritos Lagos, Tina’s Trucks, Alshammy Mediterranean Grill & Tasty Unicorn for dessert.

You’ll need to bring your lawn chairs and a drink and, of course your food, and we’ll eat together.  The food trucks are there from 4:00 to 8:00 but let’s gather at 5:30 at the gazebo. Hope to see you then.

“After moving to a senior’s home, a woman encounters a clique of mean spirited women and an amorous widower” https://www.queenbeesfilm.com/gallery/

Because this was fast impromptu event, I don’t have time to arrange carpools. Call you neighbors or friends and get your group together.

You will want to buy your tickets on line at the B & B Theater. Make sure you pick the B & B on 135th St and get the 12:50 movie for Thursday, July 1. We will meet there. So far all seats are available so it’ll be like our own little private party! Cost is $12.00 per ticket.

Fountains Bunko Players!

We will be starting up Bunko again this month on June 28th (4th Monday of each month). There will be a few changes in place to help everyone feel more at ease.
  1. You are welcome to wear a mask. However, that is not a requirement.
  2. Tables will be cleaned before we begin to play.
  3. There will be hand sanitizer on each table.
  4. It is still $5 to play and the winners will be the same as before.
  5. We are asking everyone to bring their own dice (3). This cuts down on shared surfaces.
  6. Please bring your own pen to keep your score.  Score sheets will be provided.
  7. We will be playing at a table for 3 games before we move. This will cut down on movement and may even help those of us who have difficulty getting up and down. The winners of 2 of the 3 games will be the moving pair. (winners wander-losers linger)
  8. There will not be refreshments served, so please bring a drink if you would like to have one.  A short bathroom break is planned.
It feels great to be planning to do something so normal as playing Bunko! Hope to see you soon.
**Please share this with any Raintree resident you know will be playing with us.
