Women's Club of Turtle Cove

HELLO SUMMER & Bring On the Flip-Flops!!  – May 2021

How wonderful it is that we can finally celebrate the gorgeous month of May! The Sun is warming, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and gardens are growing. Per Google, the Month of May is named for the Roman goddess Maia, who oversaw the growth of plants. We sure would keep her busy in our neck of the woods.  We do love our plants & flowers. 

APRIL MEETING – As usual, we all had a great time.  BRAD BARRINGER from INSURANCE WAREHOUSE in Monticello was our guest speaker.  He provided us a wealth of information regarding insurance coverage, especially with regard to Medicare. Following our meeting and presentation, we enjoyed lunch and Bunco.

MONTHLY EXCURSION – For our May excursion, the Woman’s Club is going to WHISTLE STOP CAFÉ in Juliette for lunch.  This is the same restaurant that was featured in the movie FRIED GREEN TOMATOES.  We have reservations at 11:00 am on Monday, May 10th.  After lunch, we can hang around for a little shopping if anything is open. Grab your mom, neighbor, sister, BFF – all good!!  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER; it’s just a fun trip for everyone. If you would like to carpool, meet at the clubhouse at 10:15 to leave by 10:30 or just meet us there.  If Please contact Nancy Witt at 678-371-3762 to RSVP so we can fine tune the reservations.  Come on y’all, let’s go have a blast.   PS: Pool anyone? We’re currently planning a trip to BILLIARDS in Covington for our June excursion. Stay tuned for details.

OH MY GOSH - WHAT A FANTASTIC COMMUNITY - With the overwhelming support of Turtle Cove management & office staff, the fabulous community members who donated so much candy, and the wonderful Woman’s Club volunteers that stuffed the eggs, we were able to provide OVER 1,400 candy-filled eggs for our Easter Family Fun Event. Because of all of these great folks, Turtle Cove is able to continuously provide these wonderful events for our community members. A heartfelt thank you goes out to of each of you.

GIVE LOCAL. SAVE LOCAL - As usual, our BLOOD DRIVE was a huge success with 26 donors. Thank you so much to all of you that donated. With your help, up to 78 lives were saved.  The next blood drive is scheduled for Saturday, June 26th.

TURTLE COVE DIRECTORY – The Woman’s Club is still in the process of gathering contact information from the residents wanting to appear in the 2021-2023 Telephone Directory.  Collection boxes, to assist in gathering contact information, have been placed in the lobby and restaurant at the clubhouse.  You can also submit your information to the front office at the clubhouse or contact Dorothy Cedars at 678-773-9314.

FOOD BANK - The food bank still has an urgent need for volunteers on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays from 9:00-1:30. The Woman’s Club is seeking volunteers on an on-going basis.  If you would like to volunteer regularly or just occasionally, please contact Nancy Witt at 678-371-3762 or to sign up.

All Turtle Cove women are encouraged to be a part of the Woman’s Club.  We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 11:00.
