About Our 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.
Old enough to have done it all…
young enough to do it again!
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 500 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.
All members must reside in Kings Point. Guests, sponsored by a member, are welcome at most events. Annual dues for the club are $10.00 per person per Club Year (April 1st through March 31st).
