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 Peninsula is welcome to join. Remember to bring your Villages ID or guest pass to the meeting. We meet monthly, except in the summer. We usually meet at the Savannah Center on the second Wednesday of the month at 6 pm to 8:50 pm. The exception is the April picnic. They move us around at Savannah. Just look for the sign. Doors open at 5:30. Bring your Villages ID.
Our next gathering
Michigan Yooper Fall Status
We hope everyone had a safe and healthy summer.
This is Bruce, the Michigan Yooper secretary and Gail Miller, the club treasurer giving you an update.
In the past the Yooper meetings would start in October. This year and most of last year was much different with the pandemic. Gail and I are reevaluating the Yooper meeting situation. Let’s see how other clubs handle this and if there are any repercussions.
October is canceled. We will meet at the picnic pavilion at the Paradise Rec Center on Saturday, November 13 from 4 to 5:30 PM. That is the area we use for the spring picnic. You are welcome to bring and snack/drink if you’d like. We can talk about whether enough members feel conditions are safe to meet, whether to continue our group and find some folks to volunteer. Maybe we can salvage something from January through April.
We need input from our members. We hope you can attend. If you cannot attend we would appreciate your input by phone or email.
Keep in mind that we lost our president and vice-president in the spring of 2020 when Randi and Dennis relocated to the Seattle area. We really need help as 2 of us cannot cover 4 positions. So if you are interested in helping please contact Gail or Bruce.
Our other huge concern is the need to replace board members. Some members need to step forward and play a more active role. We brought this up when the board last met and in Zoom calls in the fall.
Our Next Gathering Saturday, Nov.13
