"The Last Train to Key West” by Chanel Cleeton

                       In 1935 three women are forever changed when one of the most powerful hurricanes in history

                       barrels toward the Florida Keys.  For the tourists traveling on Henry Flagler’s legendary Overseas

                       Railroad, Labor Day weekend is an opportunity to forget the economic depression gripping the                             nation. But one person’s paradise can be another’s prison, and Key West-native Helen Berner

                       yearns to escape.  After the Cuban Revolution of 1933 leaves Mirta Perez’s family in a precarious

                       position, she agrees to an arranged marriage with a notorious American. Following her wedding

in Havana, Mirta arrives in the Keys on her honeymoon. While she can’t deny the growing attraction to her new husband, his illicit business interests may threaten not only her relationship, but her life.
 
Elizabeth Preston's trip to Key West is a chance to save her once-wealthy family from their troubles after the Wall Street crash. Her quest takes her to the camps occupied by veterans of the Great War and pairs her with an unlikely ally on a treacherous hunt of his own.  Over the course of the holiday weekend, the women’s paths cross unexpectedly, and the danger swirling around them is matched only by the terrifying force of the deadly storm threatening the Keys.

Due to the Corona Virus all Activities and meetings are cancelled until further notice.

First Thursday of the month at the clubhouse 7PM to 9PM
Book Club Meets - The purpose to the club is to enlighten our members and get them out of their "comfort zone" with their "normal" type of book they read.  You'd be surprised how many other types of books you may like.  Join us for stimulating discussion about a new book every month.  The group, led by Joan Ebersbach, discusses the book we've read during the last month and chooses a new book for the following month.


Second Saturday of the month at the clubhouse 6PM to ??

Residents get together here in the clubhouse to socialize for fun.  It's also a way to celebrate anyone having a birthday that month.  Everyone is welcomed HOWEVER the only rule is that each individual must bring what they are to drink and each individual must bring what they are to snack on (dessert, snacks, appetizers, crock pot surprises, etc.).  As always it is always nice to bring extra to share .... Whatever is brought in must be brought out. Donating extra paper goods is always appreciated.
