Hilton Head Island Singles Newsletter


March 2018


To all our members, a big Thank You for re-joining for the 2018 calendar year, and for attending and supporting your Club Events.  
Our database will be updated in March to now reflect only the members who have paid their membership dues for 2018, and thus allow our 2018 paid members to continue to receive our club communications going forward.  
We look forward to accepting club membership renewals and new memberships throughout the calendar year, and those members will be added to our database so that they can enjoy and receive our club communications as well.
Many more events, dinners, happy hours to come. Good to see more members making suggestions; let your voices be heard because we are listening. 
Warm regards, Lori
Highlights from February 2018:  
Super Bowl Party:
We kicked off (pun intended!) February with a great “Super Bowl Party” hosted by Dr. John Drammis on Sunday 2-4-18, and organized by Angela McFadin along with John.  What a fabulous job they did; they were the true Super Bowl stars. We also want to acknowledge our Board and members/guests for their “setup and cleanup,” and all the delicious food contributions.  A team effort which was very much appreciated. 
Wine Tasting and Chocolate Party:   

A magical Valentine’s Day “Wine Tasting & Chocolate Party” was celebrated on Saturday, 2-17-18, hosted by Angela McFadin at her always inviting home.  Everyone brought their favorite bottle of wine to share and prizes were awarded for the bottles receiving the most votes.  Delectable chocolates were displayed on a variety of lovely trays to enhance the wine tastings.  A firepit in the backyard took the chill out of the night air for those who ventured outside.  It was an evening filled with great food and conversation.
Hilton Head Island Singles Anniversary Brunch:

We enjoyed a successful turnout on Sunday, 2-25-18, for our “Island Singles Anniversary Celebration Brunch” coordinated by Geri Ruka and celebrated at the Bonefish Grill.  It was nice to catch up with some of our original members from many years ago and introduce them to our current and new members.  Lori, our club’s board president, had some lovely words to share with the group and a few toasts were made along the way.
