I hope you all are enjoying our great weather! Attached below you will find the December Calendar of Events. This is the time of year where things start to get very busy here at the club! I do keep the website updated daily to the best of my ability so be sure to check it weekly for any updates or changes. We have a lot of social room private room rentals this month and I have noted them on the calendar in purple so please know you will NOT have access to the social room on those days and times.
Next Wednesday, December 7th at 12:00PM is our Ladies Holiday Lunch Bunch at Shula’s at The Naples Hilton. CLICK HERE to see the menu and/or register for the event. I need to give the restaurant the final count on Monday so please sign up to attend by then. I hope all of our Marbella Lakes ladies can join us 🙂
I had a Holiday Dessert Exchange scheduled for next Tuesday, December 6th from 5:30PM-7:00PM; however, I think I might have scheduled it a little early in the month. Can you please email me at if you are interested in participating in a Holiday Dessert Exchange this month and maybe I can find another night to have it on. For those of you whom have never been to one, basically you bring 3 dozen of cookies or some type of dessert (normally it’s 3 dozen of the same kind) and then you swap desserts with all whom attend so you go home with an assortment of holiday treats as opposed to just one dessert.
Next Friday, December 9th is our Holiday Lights Ku Ku Trolley. The trolley will leave the community promptly at 5:30PM so we ask all guests to arrive no later then 5:15PM for boarding. The trolley is currently SOLD OUT. CLICK HERE to sign up to be on the waitlist. Everyone who has signed up to go has paid so if there is some reason you are not going to be able to attend, please let me know ASAP so I can try to resell your spots to someone on our waitlist. It should be a fun night!
