MARDI GRAS: FOLLOW THE LEADER
16 FEBRUARY 2021

 

Mardi – is French for “Tuesday” and Gras means “Fat”. Carnival is another common name for Pre-Lenten festivities because in Latin carnelevarium means to take away or remove meat.

Dear Friends,


Mark your calendars for Tuesday - 16 February 2021. Our Women’s Club is the sponsor and Eileen Anderson and Marian Young are points of contact. Looking for lots of volunteers and great ideas – contact Eileen at 507 317 0296 and or Marian 719 468 4556. Eileen and Marian can plan a meeting.

 

* This is an initial announcement for this Mardi Gras event – so start forming your ideas and Krewes - do your colors. Prizes will be awarded.

Here’s a little history to get you in the spirit. Mardi Gras, is traditionally celebrated as “Fat Tuesday” before Ash Wednesday and is the start of Lent. It is a tradition dating back thousands of years to pagan spring and fertility rights. The first Mardi Gras took place in March 1699 when French explorers landed in New Orleans where they held a small celebration dubbed Port du Mardi Gras.

In the decades that followed, New Orleans and other French settlements began marking the holiday with street parties, masked balls and lavish dinners. In 1857, a secret society of New Orleans businessmen called the Mistick Krewe of Comus organized a torch-lit Mardi Gras procession with marching bands and rolling floats setting the tone for future public celebrations. These iconic colors have meaning – Purple is for justice, gold is power and green stands for faith. Since then, these krewes have remained a fixture of the Carnival scene including throwing beads, wearing masks, decorating floats and eating King cake. Let’s add Sunshine to the map!

12-19-20     Sat             Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt (Sue Swidryk)

From Sue to Event Participants (2020-12-20): Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt Results - 

Thank you all so much for participating in the Sunshine Estates Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt. I hope everyone had a good time. The winners were determined by how many clues they found AND how many points were collected.  The points were in the parenthesis at the end of each clue: the easiest clues having one point and the hardest clues having 5 points with a mixture in between. I have posted the correct answers in the library.

The two winners were Bill and Janet Peterson and Donn and Diane Perkins. One team received a bottle of Baileys Irish Cream and the other  team received a $25 gift card to HEB which were supplied by the Sunshine Women's Club.

 A big thank you to the Scavenger hunt committee: Carolyn Anderson, Jan Baethke and Nancy Luellen, Also to Lassey Dahlstrom who wrote most of the riddles for the clues.

WOMEN'S CLUB: SUNSHINE GOLF CART SCAVENGER HUNT

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19th, 1:00 - 3:00PM

 

JOIN US FOR A FUN AFTERNOON IN A GOLF CART SCAVENGER HUNT.

The first Sunshine Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt will take place in Sunshine Country Club Estate Saturday, December 19th from 1 pm to 3 pm.

You can sign up via one of two methods: (1) in the library or (2) e-mail Sue at sswidryk007@aol.com. You must get on the list in order to participate in this activity.


Deadline for signup is TODAY, Wednesday, December 16th @ 5PM.
 

On the day of the event meet in front of the office 10 minutes or so prior to 1 PM. That's where you will be given 'hunt' instructions and your clues. If you are late, you may get a late start on accumulating points (see below).

Golf cart teams are challenged to earn the most points while cruising around Sunshine searching for items for which they have been given clues. Teams can be one or two people. First and second place awards will be given for the most points a team accumulates. Don't forget to have your golf cart batteries charged or your gas tank full.

 

Just to clarify - You will never need to get out of your golf cart. The answer to all of the clues will be evident from the comfort of your cart.

 

It might be benificial to you if you were to cruise around the STREETS of the Estates prior to the event in order to familiarize yourself with various items in people's yards, driveways, rooftops (yikes) etc. This may save you some precious time on Sat.

 

NOTE: You will not need to drive along the Reasaca edge or go into the Storage Lot area. Only the Streets.


Remember to wear masks and follow social distancing rules.

Hope to see you there.

For the Women's Club:
This is a reminder of the MASK-O-RADE festivities this evening. Click HERE for attachment with details. I've been walking around the community and saw several homeowners decorating their golf carts. It should be loads of fun.

For the Web site:
The Sunshine Web site is thirsting for events this year. Due to the pandemic it hasn't received much relief. However, the MASK-O-RADE this evening is a perfect opportunity for one and all to help out. The Web site needs pictures - and lots of them - of this evening's festivities. Your pictures can be sent to Beth Parrish at the e-mail address below. Or give me a call and I can arrange to get them from you by other means (USB stick, etc).
