Monet & Friends Alive

Fountains Friends,

Join us Tuesday, November 15, at Starlight Theater in Swope Park to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of 19th century Europe through the eyes of Claude Monet and the Impressionist painters who immortalized them. Monet & Friends Alive is a multi-sensory experience to entertain the whole family.  This is similar to the Van Gogh presentation that was there recently. 

Tickets are $38 for 65+ and $45 for everyone else.  There is a $5 fee.  Tickets are timed entry so we are recommending you arrange a carpool group and purchase your tickets together for the 10:20 a.m. slot.  There’s also limited availability for the 10:40 entry period.  It was not possible to purchase group entry at this late date.  If you want to go but don’t have a group, contact me and will see if we can find you a group.

If you’re interested in extending the outing, we will meet about 12:30 p.m. at Spin Pizza in the Summit Woods Crossing Shopping Center.  Please RSVP to Zona Mitchell by Sunday, November 13, 816-797-3893 (text) or, if you plan to attend lunch so we can make arrangements with the restaurant.

Hope you can join us!

Fountains Community Service Project

Fountains friends,

The Social/Connections Committee is once again sponsoring a winter coat/accessories collection for Lee’s Summit Social Services.  You may leave items at the Mitchell’s, 4651 SW Olympia Pl (next to roundabout), starting Monday, November 14 through Thursday, November 17. Items collected will be delivered  to LSSS on the 18th.  If we have stepped out for a while, you can leave items in the basket on the front porch. 

Check your closets for gently used and clean winter coats, scarves, gloves, or hats you no longer need.  When you are out shopping, please consider purchasing new coats/accessories as well.  All sizes – children, women, men –are needed.  Some of these items may be used in their family Christmas store. 

The Fountains community has been exceptionally generous in the past, which is very much appreciated!  Thank you for helping out those less fortunate this year!

Living to bless,

Zona Mitchell

This is to serve as a reminder as well as new information. Friday evening (June 10th) at 6:30 we will be meeting at the gazebo on Soldier Dr. to meet and greet new neighbors and longtime neighbors. Snacks will be provided but bring a chair and your choice of drink. Please RSVP to Lenore Chambers at 816-718-5711 by Thursday the 9th.

Also it appears that there are a number of new folks in The Fountains, as well as others, that enjoy fishing and may not have anyone to go with them. Generally, we that live in The Fountains should not be going fishing alone. After the main get together Friday evening those that would like to meet others that also enjoy fishing will meet for a quick gathering to try to get acquainted. If you can’t make it then, at least we can get a list and phone number of the ones that will be there.

Also Fellas remember we’re meeting at the Big Biscuit at 10:30 this Thursday.

Hope to see you on Thursday and/or Friday.
