By-Laws Change Comments

Last week we let you know that we are entertaining an idea that would change the membership requirements to include Villages residents who are not residents of the Village of Belvedere.

Too view some of the comments we have received to date click on the “Documents” link under “Pages” in the right margin.

If you would like a copy of the by-laws, you can get it in a variety of formats using the “Club By-laws” link under “Pages” in the right margin.

Don’t forget, we will be having an open discussion of this idea at our Meeting on May 10th at Laurel Manor to get your input.

If you will not be attending the meeting or you want to comment beforehand, you can contact the President, Jaye Wolfe by email at

Thanks for your thoughtful input,
The Board

Refunds for September Social

Refunds for the September meeting of the Belvedere Social Club will be given out at the Pimlico Recreation Center on Wednesday and Thursday, September 20 and 21, from 10am to 11am.  You will need to turn in your September ticket to get a refund. No exceptions.

If you can’t be at Pimlico at either of those times, please contact Elaine Sumner, (352) 504-8166, to make other arrangements.

September Social Cancelled

Hi All

Its great to be able to say that most of us in Belvedere and The Villages survived Irma with minimal damages to our homes.  But it is still a mess with trees down and local flooding and most significantly electricity outages.  It is for that reason we are canceling the meeting scheduled for this Thursday.

We will get back to you with a process for refunding your tickets. Give us a few days to get a plan in place.

Thank you for your understanding.  We’ll see you on October 12th!

Congratulations to Jeanne Post for noticing the last post on this blog was in August. You win the prize, Jeanne!

Apparently, there was a glitch in the server that deleted all the site data. When it was recovered, the latest posts had not been backed up. I’ve kept backups more current than that and I’ll try to recover the posts about the October, November, and December events. I may leave things just as they are, however.

We will post info on the new board, the January meeting (Belvedere Derby), and an update on a survey we will be conducting.


New Procedures for 2015

1.  Your 2014 membership ends as of December 31, 2014.  Please update your e-mail  information so you will receive e-mails announcing exciting events for the New Year. Also watch the bulletin board at the mail station and the Recreation News in the Daily Sun for  upcoming event announcements.

2. Good news! Membership dues will remain the same as last year at $5 per person. Remember  your dues  must be paid before attending any event (social/summer golf). The dues are based on a calendar year January 1, 2015 thru December 31, 2015 no matter when paid.
Dues may be paid at the same time and place when you purchase your event tickets (see  announcement  at the end of this message). 

3.  We will no longer be reserving seats in advance but you still can  purchase tickets as a group ((You must purchase them all at the same time)) and we will seat you at a table together. If you do not have a group we will place you at a table when you pick up and pay for your tickets. Seating is based on a limited number of tables  so all seats must be filled.

4. We are no longer be delivering tickets to your home. Tickets and/or membership will be sold at a specific location, date and time. When you purchase your ticket(s), you may select a table.  If you are unable to purchase tickets or pay membership directly you may mail a check (made out to BSC) for the amount of tickets (and membership) to Eileen McKinney, our Secretary, at 2436 Morven Parkway, The Villages Fl 32162 and pick up your tickets/membership receipt the night of the event at the Meet and Greet Table.   No tickets or memberships can be purchased at the door.
