Holiday Breakfast and Walk

Sun City Center will be kicking off the Holiday Season with a $5 breakfast served in the Florida Room on December 2, followed by shopping opportunities at the clubs. The breakfast and shopping are open to you, your friends, your family and the community at large. Consider volunteering to help out at the breakfast. You will only be asked to work for one two-hour shift.

The atmosphere is festive, there are many seasoned volunteers to help you, and it is a great way to interact with lots of friendly people. Sound fun? Talk to Linda Oddo, Pat Sullivan or Bob Sullivan or write to Bob at “”. You will have a good time as well as doing a good deed.


Parade Theme: Holiday Movie Magic and Memories           

What is your favorite holiday movie? Miracle on 34th Street? National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation? A Christmas Story? There are so many wonderful and sometimes crazy movies about the holiday season.  This year’s Golf Cart Parade Theme, “Holiday Movie Magic and Memories” can be based on whatever holiday movie you wish.

Residents of Sun City Center, Kings Point, Freedom Tower, Aston Gardens and Aston Gardens at the Courtyards are all encouraged to enter a golf cart in this year’s Saturday, December 9 parade. Registration is free and forms can be picked up at any of the club offices. They are also available at the Sun City Center website. Clubs, groups and individuals are all welcome.

On December 9, carts check in between 8:30 and 9 a.m. with the parade starting at 10. After the parade, there will be $2,000 in prizes awarded. Prize categories include individuals, groups and businesses. Carts entered by businesses will be eligible for trophies only. All other participants will be given a raffle ticket giving them a chance for four prizes.

Next, the Security Patrol will draw the winning ticket for a golf cart.  You probably have noticed the cart sitting front of their office at the corner of La Jolla and North Pebble Beach. Be sure to stop in the Security Patrol office to purchase your chance to win.

Finally, a Winterfest Celebration will be held on the plaza. Music, food and crafts will be available. Mark December 9 on your calendar as an event for you, your friends and your family to enjoy.
