Christmas Dinner at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida. Nice turn out and most of our "snowbird" residents have returned now. Those that have not, will soon be arriving now that the holidays are nearly over. I pity those driving down on Interstate 95 or 74. Those are typically one 1,000 mile parking lot that moves very slowly. I was in it twice and said never again. Wonderful weather though. Sunny and mid 70's during the day!
Many of our 55+ subdivisions have these dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas so that those residents who can't be with their families up north can be with their friends and neighbors here. The people even make up meal boxes and take them to shut-ins who live in the park. Beats a frozen dinner alone. The food is great and home-made. In 4 of the parks I pay for the turkeys and hams for these occasions and the people seem to appreciate that. Even got a round of applause each time.
Just one of the many benefits of wintering in one of our 55+ subdivisions where you own the land under the homes here in Zephyrhills, Florida. A week ago they also had a golf cart parade with every cart decorated for the holidays. With the lights and music we made the night truly come to life!
If you are looking for a way to except the cold, snow and ice of the northern states, feel free to give me a call or email me. I will be happy to assist you in any way that I can.
