Default Evening with The Developer

Was it just me or was the approx 50 minute presentation much ado about nothing? There wasn't anything in the presentation that wasn't known for months. Would rather have them cancel and reschedule when they had something of substance.

If you live to be 100 and attend every presentation made by the developer, you will never hear what you call "something of substance."

On the other hand, the Morse’s could skip the event. But, I believe they enjoyed the night and are into making The Villages the best retirement community in the U.S.

People continue to be interested in seeing the Morse family in person. Every seat was filled. We loved seeing all of the very young family members on the stage last night.

We should all be kind in our thoughts and believe what Mark said about his and the families devotion to keeping our way of life here exciting and beautiful.

We didn't get to attend due to other things going on with us. BUT I so agree. People who come here and enjoy the life-style so often diss the very "hand that feeds them" (so to speak). NOT sure why people are so negative but it doesn't profit them in any sense of the word. We've always enjoyed going to "An Evening With The Developer" and believe the Morse family is doing us a great thing here. Where else can one live, enjoy what's offered and live fairly economically besides?? Thank you TwoPlane for your comments!

We don't go, and have never gone, BUT I think it is really important for some to see that there is a human face and now, many human faces, behind the curtain. At one time people used to post that they were frightened that the developer would make his money and move on leaving us to gradually fall into disrepair! Actually being able to see and hear Mr. Morse and his family must be very comforting to some who have that worry. It's a bit like an annual shareholders meeting where the chairman of the board addresses all the shareholders and tells them everything is AOK and keep buying shares in the business.

As for the Morse family, that is a lot of mouths to feed .................. and as I sit here this morning looking out across my beautiful location I am glad to know that there are so many people who have a vested interest in continuing to grow The Villages.

You may have that backwards --We are the hands that feed them!"

I agree with Jayhawk
