Ok, enough for now, I need to keep some things secret, haha. Thanks again. Meet and Greet? Perhaps. Thanks for the invite!

We're from Orange County too. Blooming Grove, just outside of Monroe.

Thanks for sharing your blog, Chief -- looks very interesting. No, we're not from up North but we're just as happy to welcome you to paradise.

I've also seen several references to a Newbies orientation. I will be in The Villages in March for a househunting trip. Can you tell me when it is held and if it's possible for an almost-Villager to attend? Also, can you recommend any other activities/meetings that would give me an opportunity to talk to other TVers?

PS - I'm originally an upstate NY gal - born in Schenectady, raised in Endwell, lived in Ithaca and White Plains. Can't wait for sunshine and warm weather!

Default March

If you happen to be here for St. Pats. there's a big parade and block party in both squares. Should be able to get all the info you need. also you'll see how much fun people have here. Other then that just go to the squares at night, stop by a local watering hole or ride around and if you see some people just stop and talk. Most of us don't bite.There's always music, kareoke etc. Third Friday of every month at Crispers is the TOTV get together. I'm sure they wouldn't mind you stopping by at all. Just ask for Kathie I when you get there. Trust me she'll steer you in the right direction.

Hi Taylor, its not really an orientation, but a "meet and greet" where newbies and oldies (lol) meet to exchange information, laughs and to just get to know each other.

This normally occurs every 3rd Friday of the month, you'll see it on the forum calendar or I sometimes post a reminder about it. It is at Crispers on 466 and 101 @ 3pm. We can have as many as 30 people there and its a fun event. Crispers is a nice self-serve type restaurant that has good food and is reasonably priced. March's meeting will be March 18 and I hope you will be there at that time.

As far as meeting other TV'ers to meet them, PM me when you get here and I will try to arrange a special event for our other friends here to meet you. Just let me know.

BTW, you will love it here....

Our northern home in Blooming Grove is just a few miles from Cornwall, in fact the two towns share a border. Cornwall is indeed a beautiful little village.
The Hudson Valley is a beautiful area in the spring, summer and fall. Winters are difficult though. That's why snowbirding suits us just fine and we're in no hurry to sell the NY home. Some day we'll probably have to make a choice and a tough choice it will be. I honestly don't know where we'll end up.
Until then we'll be content travelling back and forth.
