Walton County Snowbirds are Learning!

The Walton County Snowbirds (WCS) currently have 722 members and many more new members this year.  We are ahead of our 2023 membership numbers.  Why?  Because we have fun in Florida! 

As a retiree and snowbird, you may get tired of being asked, “what do you do all day?”  The WCS have so many activities that our calendars are pretty busy!  For those who love the outdoors and/or exercise, offer golf, basketball, pickleball, bowling, aerobics, line dancing, water aerobics, bike riding, tennis, and ballroom dancing.  Interested in music and art?  We have two ukulele groups, an art group, a creative writing group, and a crafts group.  Don’t forget our very active card groups that include bridge, hand and foot, poker, euchre and Mah-Jongg.  The book club and discussion groups are also very popular.  No doubt there is something for everyone!

This week’s highlight is the WCS Bowling League …a favorite for snowbirds!!  This is a fun league to be with other snowbirds as you spend 2-3 hrs bowling w/different teams.  There are 12 teams of 4 people.  The cost is $12.00/person and if you don’t have your own bowling shoes or ball, they are free.  Most members commit for 8 weeks, but some come later so we work them in or make a new team.  Some members leave early so we always in need of more bowlers.  A big thank you to Activity Leaders Judy & Keith Kremers and Bill Bentley for their leadership in organizing this fun activity!   Snowbirds who want to bowl need to be at Hurricane Lanes by 11:30am as practice starts at 11:50am with league bowling at 12:00 noon.  Not a bowler, stop by and cheer them on!!
