The Villages, Florida has almost 3,000 social clubs and one of them is The Villages Cheerleaders, yes, a 55+ retirement community has a Cheerleader club! More than 90 members strong they mark their 28th year of being an organized club.
The cheerleaders are well represented at parades, sporting events, Honor Flights, store and Villages grand openings and the annual Christmas Tree Lighting at all three squares. Like most clubs in The Villages the Cheerleaders raise money for various charities and you will see them at most 5k races. The cheerleaders also support The America Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Some of the members have never cheered and decided to learn and join others maybe 50 years ago they cheered in high school and missed it. When I am working with a client not familiar with The Villages I ask their interest and we either have it as a recreation or a club. 200 Pickleball courts, over 700 holes of golf, 4 venues with live music and 2,990 clubs. Ya, we got that!
