Calling all Converted Texans!

Contrary to popular belief, just because our Winter Texans head north for the spring and summer months…  that doesn’t mean that activities in our retirement communities come to a screeching halt.  Sure, things slow down to a less hectic pace, but many of our Converted Texans can still outpace most of the 40 year olds I know, myself included.


This summer, we want to show our Converted Texans just how much we care.  We kicked off the off-season with our Converted Texan Fiesta which was held at the Hynes Event Center at Llano Grande Resort.  Over 400 people came out to celebrate with us!  A great time was had by all, and once again I was reminded of how age is simply a number.


We decided it was time to take our Converted Texan appreciation to a whole new level this summer, by creating opportunities to for them to mix and mingle and meet new people. We introduced our Summer Supper Club, where we will be eating our way through the Rio Grande Valley this summer.  Each week we’ve got a different restaurant to try, and we invite you to join us!  Our Supper Club meets each Thursday from 3 – 5 pm and just last week we had over 50 people in attendance!  It’s all dutch treat, and there is not any kind of ‘club membership fee’ – just a group of people who enjoy not cooking and trying new restaurants.


We’ve also got some ice cream socials planned, movie outings and maybe even a bowling league if there’s enough interest.  Everyone is invited, so come by yourself and meet new friends or bring your buddies for a fun time.  I welcome your thoughts and suggestions on things to do, and am always up for an opportunity not to cook!


You can find our Summer Supper Club here, and we’d love to hear your suggestions on group outings.  Give us a call at 956-687-5115 and get involved with us this summer!
