Season’s Winding Down: Summer Events for Full-Time Colony Residents
Just because season is winding down doesn’t mean that you have to. There are plenty of wonderful summer events available to full-time residents of The Colony. If you’re looking for something to do this summer, look no further.
Are you interested in seeing all the sights that Switzerland has to offer? The Travel Club will be taking a spectacular trip this summer to see Scenic Switzerland by Train from July 31 – August 8. This memorable 9 day trip, includes visits to Zermatt, Lucerne, Montreaux, Zurich, and St. Moritz. For more information, email PLTravelClub@aol.com.
Canoeing & Kayaking
Both new and experienced paddlers in The Colony are always able to enjoy the natural beauty of Southwest Florida from a kayak or canoe at the Colony Kayak & Canoe Park. Don’t miss the last sunset/moonrise paddle of the season on May 4. You can sign up for the long paddle at 6:45 p.m. or the short paddle at 7:30 p.m.
If you are interested in gardening or enjoy butterflies, then join the weekly garden gathering at the Butterfly Garden every Wednesday from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. This gardening group is always in need of volunteers to maintain the garden and keep the ecosystem healthy. Every Wednesday you can meet others who share your passion and use your knowledge and experience to help the garden thrive.
If you are looking to stay active this summer, there are plenty of opportunities to get together with friends for a game of golf or a tennis match at The Colony. There are multiple sports events offered by the club throughout the summer, which offer you the opportunity to meet others and keep your game sharp. Not a golfer or a tennis player? If you like cycling, the Cycling club meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning for a fun and refreshing group ride.
