Naturist Costume Dance on Saturday, the 27th
Sunsport has been fortunate to avoid the bad weather this Summer and early Fall. After an unusually rainy May, the weather has been beautiful. The predominately dry weather has resulted in very few mosquitoes for this time of year.

Halloween is a month of fun with a Naturist Costume Dance on Saturday, the 27th, a Haunted Hayride at dusk on Tuesday, the 29th, and of course Trick-or-Treating on Wednesday, Halloween evening.
For Halloween treats, I always opt for small toys as treats rather than unhealthy candy. The children and some of their parents seem appreciative.

As usual, there will be a community drum circle on the first Friday of the month.

The new bamboo fence between the volleyball courts and Weekend Row is very attractive, very natural looking. Preparing for Season, the maintenance staff has been doing lots of painting in South Florida colors and is removing weeds from the volleyball and petanque courts and the labyrinth.

This is the last call for workshops and activities for the 2019 Midwinter Naturist Festival, February 14-19. Please contact me quickly with your ideas, call me at (561) 791-1361 or email me at [email protected]. Sunsport members leading at least two workshops will have the Festival registration fee waived.
I suggest that people coming to the Festival from out of the area make your airline reservations now while reasonably priced airline tickets are still available.

Greetings from your new Winter Activities Committee!

Gratitude to retired Carolyn and Bernie Roche for their years of entertaining us! Our new committee principles are Marty Menane, Barbara Skinner, Francine Goulet, and Irene Byers. We are energized and excited, and hope to bring some fun in the form of old favorite activities as well as some new ones. We are also volunteers … so be patient and be nice. ;-) You are key to the level of frivolity we can experience so join with us in creating enjoyable events for all of us this winter.

Returning are many of our favorite activities: water aerobics, line dancing with Barb and Gigi, Petanque, volleyball, square dancing, cards (wink wink), Zumba, yoga. Planned additions include a weekly book/conversation group (info to come soon), a Mardi Gras parade (turn your creative juices loose!), a Gong Show talent competition (should be funny!). We've also arranged with Sunsport management to have an Ice Cream Hour every Sunday because, well, who doesn't love ice cream!?!

If you have a skill or craft you'd like to teach or lead to an interested group, let us hear about it. We can help you put together a 2-6 week class or even a one-meeting event, or maybe you have a class that you've done previously. Woodworking, fiber arts (knit, crochet, etc.), self-defense, dance lessons, weaving, book group. What's your passion? Folks are looking for interesting things to do and learn. Let's take this opportunity to share our skills, interests, and passions.

The Saturday night dances are on! Main Street will be returning to play for our Age of Aquarius Dance in January, and Bobby & Debbie are on board to provide entertainment. Planned themes this year are: Age of Aquarius, The Red Dance (wear red), Mardi Gras, a Country Dance, and Leather & Lace. Many dances will be hosted by Guest DJs. We've lined up a few DJs already, and have slots available if you are interested. Contact a committee member for additional details.

The Activities Committee functions on a small budget from Sunsport but heavily on your financial contributions. (Remember, we also enjoy some of the best rental fees in South Florida.) We will be holding 50/50s every Saturday with all funds going toward activities for us all to enjoy. Perhaps you can make a decision ahead of time to budget a contribution toward the Activities Committee; make it a habit to stop by to the pool area and get in on the 50/50s each Saturday, also throw a contribution into the various jars you'll find at bake sales, etc. We thank you and promise to do our very best with everything you share.

Permaculture SunSport News

The jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus), also known as jack tree, fenne, jakfruit, or sometimes simply jack or jak, is a species of tree in the fig, mulberry, and breadfruit family (Moraceae) native to southwest India.
Its fruit is the largest tree-borne fruit, reaching as much as 55 kg (120 lb) in weight, 90 cm (35 in) in length, and 50 cm (20 in) in diameter.
Jackfruit has a distinctive sweet and fruity aroma.
A fully ripe and unopened jackfruit is known to "emit a strong aroma", with the inside of the fruit described as smelling of pineapple and banana. After roasting, the seeds may be used as a commercial alternative to chocolate aroma.
