Boo-eautiful Night in Southern Meadow




Tis the witching hour of night,
Or bed is the moon and bright,
And the stars they glisten, glisten,
Seeming with bright eyes to listen
For what listen they?
John Keats



" Halloween! Halloween!
Oh what SPOOKY things I've seen!
Bats and mice
and goblins too!
They're all invited,
and so are you!
We're having a Monster Bash!"
Join us at the clubhouse at 5pm October 31st

Skyline Tour

On Monday, the Management Team at Investors Realty went to a Manufactured Show in Leola, PA. It was pretty interesting! Everyone toured numerous model homes, we saw one that had an AMAZING kitchen, one with a beautiful floor plan, a quaint and cozy log cabin and many, many more! All of these up and coming floor plans that we can introduce to YOU! We also got to tour the factory and see how a manufactured homes are built, from start to finish.

We took a picture outside of the factory, hard hats included (we took off the protective glasses)!! Featured left to right in this picture is; Derek, Christine, Jill and Casey

Cooking Club: Hearty Fall Soups



The weather was horrible for cooking club day. Heavy rain and wind made for one cold trek to the clubhouse. The theme was perfect for this day, Hearty Fall soup and everything was perfect to take that chill off the bone!
Hearty Lentil soup and you can always add ham or a hot dog to it. Chocked full of lentils, carrots, celery and onions!


Carrot soup. Beautiful orange color, you can taste the thyme!


Not featured was a cream of brocolli soup. In keeping with the theme of appetizer in September, soup in October, we are moving onto Salads in November! Come cook with us!

Southern Meadow Meet and Greet

Sometimes you move into a new neighborhood and you never see your neighbors. Or if you do happen to see them, it's a wave and off everyone goes running off to do their own thing. "Names?? The neighbor has a name, really, just don't know it??" Not here at Southern Meadow. Every quarter we have a Meet and Greet. A really nice function in the clubhouse where all the old neighbors get to meet all the new neighbors. Names are exchanged, (no tests are given after to see who remembers who!) likes and dislikes are discussed and of course food was served! I was beyond happy, someone made gluten free cupcakes and they were YUMMY! Everyone went around the room and said their name, the street they lived on and what brought them to Southern Meadow. It's really nice to hear how everyone happens to come together. In fact it has really made me realize what a small world we are in. I am fortunate to say that there is someone in this community whose grandson (who lives in another state) is going to the same high school I went to, and another community member's daughter and I went to the same grammar and middle school together way back when!

We sang Happy Birthday to 2 people!





Amazing spread of food!


Yummy sugar doughnuts, heard they were delicious and went super duper quick!

Men's Lunch!

The Luncheon was supposed to be at Hooters in Rehobeth Beach. BUT when the guys got there they found out that the restaurant had changed to off season hours (seems the staff neglected to tell them that when they called!) So the guys of Southern Meadow headed next door to a sandwich shop and received 50% off!! Looks like everyone had a blast! The overall review of the restaurant that no one knows the name of, due to a senior moment, is that they would not visit it again.

Last Month's Southern Meadow Book Club Choice was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. The chapters alternate between the war era and the time sixty years later. Truly a heartbreaking piece of fiction. It brings home the horror of those Holocaust days and warns that the events of that time must not be forgotten.




Next Month's Southern Meadow Book Club read is Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemptionby Laura Hillenbrand (review from goodreads.com) On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War.
The lieutenant’s name was Louis Zamperini. In boyhood, he’d been a cunning and incorrigible delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and fleeing his home to ride the rails. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics and within sight of the four-minute mile. But when war had come, the athlete had become an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.
Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a foundering raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
In her long-awaited new book, Laura Hillenbrand writes with the same rich and vivid narrative voice she displayed in Seabiscuit.
Telling an unforgettable story of a man’s journey into extremity, Unbroken is a testament to the resilience of the human mind, body, and spirit.
