Kings Point Baby Boomers
Old enough to have done it all - young enough to do it again
ABOUT THE CLUB
The Kings Point Baby Boomers Club was the brain-child of Ken and Cheryl Kaplan,
who began spreading the idea of a club intended for those Kings Point residents
who desired to extend their network of friends to include those of a similar age
group and social interests. It wasn't long before it became obvious that there
was a need to address the "Boomer" generation's unique life style, including their
music, their memories and their need to share their retirement years in a more
upbeat environment. The Club's organization meeting was held in September 2005
with approximately 20 people in attendance, and its first officers were elected.
The need for a Mission Statement to properly describe the purpose of the club
and its openness towards "Boomers" of all ages, was the next major hurdle
to be overcome, and with the spirited help of Michelle Jolly and the newly
elected officers, the following Mission Statement was adopted.
A new generation of retirees, known as Baby Boomers, has arrived at Kings Point.
Some are snowbirds, securing their retirement homes early and making solid real
estate investments. Many are enjoying full time retirement at a younger age
than their parents did. Many of us still work part or full time, and are unable
to participate in daytime activities.
Our goal is to create a more youthful vibe in King’s Point, generating
activities that will embrace the nostalgia of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and
take advantage of the evening hours. We welcome all who have the
‘spirit’ of youthfulness and wish to share in our activities.
Within the first nine months, the membership of the club grew from 20
to over 400 individuals, enjoying activities including Wine and Tapas
Party, Twilight Bowling Party and Buffet, Pot Luck Dinners, Game
Nights, Dances, Karaoke, Shuffleboard/Volleyball/Billiard parties, and
trips to the Doo-Wop Reunion and Key West.
