Manager’s Corner

Priscilla

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday season and rang in the New Year with a joyous celebration. I am sure we all made great New Year’s resolutions, and one of mine is to continue to bring fun events to the residents of Fairways and to further the fellowship throughout the community.

February is Resident Appreciation Month here at Fairways, and I want to take this opportunity to let you know how much I appreciate every resident at Fairways by planning an Ice Cream Social, our annual Hometown Invitation Golf Tournament, and other fun events and games for Fairways throughout the month.

Our 2023 entertainment calendar is filling up fast. We will have some more dances with popular bands, summer pool parties, and much more. Let me know if you have a favorite entertainer or favorite music, and we will try to have an event featuring that genre. I know two popular bands at Fairways are KC and The Sunshine Band tribute and Chrome 57, so we will try to book these two groups again. I want to take a moment to thank all the volunteers who help Barbara Mishloney with the Hometown events. We could not do it without your help.

Warm Regards,
Priscilla
Community Manager

Banana Pudding on a Budget

This banana pudding is creamy and delicious, but even more so because it doesn’t break the bank! At only $1 per serving, you can’t go wrong with this sweet treat.

Restaurant Review

Restaurant review

Recently I went back to revisit my old-time favorite restaurant, Cooper’s Hawk, in Waterford Towne Center. I had forgotten how great the food is and how close it is to Fairways. My favorite dish besides the desserts is anything with Mary’s potatoes. They have everything from home cooking to chef-inspired creations. Oh, and did I mention, they have a variety of wines and a wine-tasting room? You absolutely must have some wonderful truffles before you leave or take them home for a special treat.

Resident Spotlight

Resident of the month

I want to shine the spotlight on some of the most giving residents at Fairways, Edwin Ramires and his lovely wife Letizia Morales. Edwin and Letizia have been active in our community since moving to Fairways. Edwin recently ascended to Commander of the Fairways Veterans Association. Both Edwin and Letizia are always first in line to help out at all the fun events and functions at Fairways. They have helped so many residents here at Fairways by replacing flags for Veterans and pitching in to paint houses for those in need.

Create a Capsule Wardrobe

Closeup of clothes iin closet

Ever heard of a capsule wardrobe? The idea goes that by cultivating a closet of only a select number of essential pieces, all of which match together, you’ll be able to cut out all the hassle and decision-making of getting dressed each morning. You’ll also eliminate the waste that comes from having a closet so stuffed you never even know what your options are.

The step-by-step process of creating a capsule wardrobe is super easy. First you have to think about your personal style and the clothes you actually wear day to day! If you live in a warmer climate, there’s no need for a drawer full of sweaters—your one or two favorites will do.

Staples of a capsule wardrobe include a few pairs of trousers, a skirt, dresses for formal and casual occasions, and a selection of tops from T-shirts to blouses. Throw a coat in there too and you’ll be surprised to find that you’re set! Start getting rid of stress today.
