Yooper Flag

The Michigan Yoopers is a social club in The Villages, Florida.

A Yooper refers to anyone with a connection with Michigan's Upper Peninsula.Anyone with a connection to Michigan's Upper Penninsula is welcome to join.  Remember to bring your Villages ID or guest pass to the meeting.

We meet monthly, except in the summer, to get together.

We usually meet at the Savannah Center in the Rhett Butler room on the second Wednesday of the month at 6 pm to 8:50 pm.  Doors open at 5:30.

The annual pasty dinner will be on Tuesday, February 13.  Please note that the meeting day has been changed because of the entertainment schedule at The Savannah Center.  We no longer will take orders for frozen pasties. The price of each pasty this year has been raised to $6 per pasty due to increased costs.  All pasties will be warm pasties and each member will be able to order one extra warm pasty.  All pasty orders are to be prepaid at the January meeting, or by check made out to: The Michigan Yoopers.  If you are not able to attend the January meeting and want to order pasties, checks can be mailed to Della Davey at 17412 SE 72nd Overbrook Ct, The Villages, FL  32162 by Wednesday, January 31, 2018.

Anyone with a connection to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, past or present, is welcome to join our club.  Annual dues in 2017 were raised to $10.00 per person.  For more information, contact Kennie at 386 428-2436.
