Charlotte's Take: Who's Up for Some Glitz & Glam?
Have you heard the saying that life begins at 50?
Well, the folks at Bonterra at Woodforest have me convinced that life begins at 55! These people know how to have a good time. Just last week, they had a Mardi Gras celebration at The Club at Bonterra that would have left this girl wanting a nap! There was food, drink, music, decorations, beads (and no, they aren’t saying how they got them) and even a King and Queen of the Ball. And this was just one of the events happening in February. There are fitness classes, outings, on-site massages and impromptu gatherings at the club all the time. And oh, let’s not forget about pickle ball — I had never even heard of it until meeting up with a Bonterra resident, but now I really want to give it a try.
You should really live the life of a Bonterra resident — oh wait, you can — even if it’s just for a few hours. That’s because the 55+ community is opening its doors to non-residents for a Hollywood Glitz & Glam party 5-8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24. They are invoking the Rap Pack era with Big Band music, champagne and even a martini bar. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, shrimp cocktail and a chocolate fountain will keep you from getting hungry. And, not only is it open to the public, it’s free! And no, thank you very much, I am not sampling the martini bar right now — it really is free! The only catch is that they kindly ask you to RSVP to BonterraLD@nfcAmenity.com by Feb. 20.
So get those fingers tapping on the keyboard and RSVP for your parents, your friends and your significant other because if you’re not 55 yet, fingers crossed you will be some day. And when you do hit that golden age, you’ll discover why life begins at 55 — if you live in Bonterra at Woodforest!
