And Elsewhere In The Villages?

Well, it has become overwhelming obvious that TheVillages.com has switched formats making it unbelievably difficult to put anything on our bucket lists (i.e., "put the red ones on your bucket list").  So I'll just have to trust in your extraordinary skills to create your own lists and keep them up-to-date as you see fit.   The link(s) below will get you to the appropriate web page.

Sunday October 6th Schedules

Monday, October 7th through October 12th Schedules

Did you notice that these are the same address?  Well, they are.  To get to next weeks schedule, you need to make sure the search criteria in the top portion of their page is set to (a) Entertainment, (b) Town Squares, and (c) Next Week.  Wow!  That sure saved me a lot of time.
