WHAT TO DO...

AND WE’RE OFF…and running!  Since late spring, Williston Crossings has been gearing up for a fun-filled 2015-16 season packed with activities for residents.  Just as residents are beginning to return, more activities are starting.

The Grist Mill Café is open for business.  Lunch is served Monday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.  The Halloween Dinner Dance officially kicked off the season and featured two favorites, Roxane & Herb’s famous stuffed pork chops and music by Fred Campbell.   halloween_ghost.jpg

November marks the return of many favorite activities.  The Woodcarving Group and Bingo begin Monday, November 2.   Pot Luck is scheduled every other week starting Tuesday, November 3.  Since food is a popular activity in Williston Crossings, residents will be pleased to know Friday Night Pizza will begin November 6. 

Anyone interested in RC Sailing (remote control) may join John McClun in the Quarry on November 3.  As more residents return, the Sewing Group, Knitting Group and Crafters will also begin to meet regularly.  Watch cable Channel 10 – the Resort’s Information Channel - for days, time and location.  The November calendar is available in the Activity Center.  The calendar is printed only once a month.  Channel 10 and the bulletin boards on the Office porch, at the Activity Center, Clubhouse and Laundromats are updated daily.  

Line Dancing classes have begun and meet twice a week.  On Friday, November 13, our line dancers will have another opportunity to use their skills as Donny Winfrey returns for our Karaoke night.   

A new event is the Fall Craft Fair to be held in the Pavilion on Saturday, November 14 from Noon to 2:00 pm.  In fact, why not make a day of activities in the Resort!  Start out with Breakfast at the Clubhouse (the first breakfast of the season) with Eggs, Waffles ‘n Bacon, Juice and Coffee.  Then participate in the Fall Craft Fair!  We have many talented crafters in the Resort and we welcome their participation.  If you are not a crafter, come see what they have to offer for your holiday shopping.  Later that evening, the musical group, Times to Remember, will entertain you at a Dinner Dance in the Clubhouse.   Top off the day at the Gazebo Fire Pit where you will enjoy the crackling fire and just might be treated to the musical talents of some of our residents.     

Ice Cream!  Did someone say Ice Cream?  Why yes! Our popular Ice Cream Social returns Sunday, November 22 in the Clubhouse.  Who doesn’t enjoy a quiet Sunday afternoon with generous scoops of their favorite ice cream. 

Thanksgiving is a huge celebration in Williston Crossings with our annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner in the Clubhouse.  The entrees and sides will be provided and residents are asked to bring a dessert to share.   We appreciate our residents and all they do to make Williston Crossings what it is…a destination to remember! 

These are just a few of our November activities.  New events are added almost daily.  While in the Resort, don't forget to watch Channel 10 and check out our bulletin boards throughout the resort.  

Yes we are off and running and this is only the beginning ...it will only get better with more activities!  Join in if you like or sit back and relax and enjoy!
