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.

 We aren’t meeting until the Fall. No meeting on February 9.This information was emailed to you at the beginning of February.


This past week with both Gail and I both in The Villages we talked more about the Yooper situation with the pandemic down here. The same morning I had 3 other groups that I belong to decide to exercise an abundance of caution to extend  cancellation of  in-person activities. Then another group has numerous positive cases of covid among their group.  With just 2 possible meetings and an April picnic isn’t much left in the season we decided to cancel. Canceling February was a definite. Planning beyond that would leave such a small window to plan anything.

This outcome isn’t what we were hoping for, but neither of us are comfortable in this situation with numerous covid cases in our community. So let’s try for next October. The problem again that we face is likely both of us might not be back that early in October.
