Dear Friends & Neighbors,

Good day from your favorite resident realtor team, Cherie & Larry Gross with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realty, a team and company you can always depend upon, "The Power of Two."

Have A Great Martin Luther King Day!

Thank you for supporting us! The best compliment we could receive is for you to refer us to your friends, family and co-workers.  We are never too busy for our clients and their affiliates and thank you in advance!

Winter "Storm Grayson" reared its ugly head and turned our eastern sections of America into a winter wonderland, from as far south as Jacksonville to our mid and eastern northern state's, all frozen more than usual. Our Delray Beach area took a hit with our temperatures dropping into the high 30's. Most everyone had to turn on their home heating systems, something we are certainly not use to doing. Yes, normally our air conditioning is used, even throughout the entire winter season. On Thursday, there were approximately 10 golfers out the entire day, no tennis players and a handful of pickleball diehards. The fitness center was crowded, cards were a must and dining was thriving, what else was there to do? Friday was a little chilly in the A.M., but by mid-morning, the golfers were out in force, taking layers of clothing off as their rounds continued. Saturday was still a little chilly in the morning, but all was back to normal. Grayson continued to batter the north, but we were in the clear, all's good in Addison. 

Just a side note to "Storm Grayson", we personally thank him for the 11 calls we received from New York, Boston, Cleveland and Philadelphia clients who have now had enough of their northern winters. Our Addison residents will meet these hearty buyers very soon.

Don't let this be YOU!!!!
Friday afternoon was a pot luck party hosted at the home of Sue Goldman,our caption, for the women participating on team #6 Palm Beach Women's Tennis Team. Everyone brought their specialty. We had Italian meatballs, lasagna, wings, shrimp, several different types of salads, not to mention lots and lots of fattening deserts. Our three professionals joined in the fun and everyone had a great time! Thank you Sue!

Friday evening, this week being the first Friday of the month, is usually happy hour at our poolside Bistro, but due to the lingering chill from "Storm Grayson", the evening was moved to Styr, our Addison Reserve Sports Bar. The room was packed with members and guests enjoying the choice of our Tapas menus or sitting at our bar or high tops and enjoying the full menu from our dining room. The music was delightful and our entire dance floor was rocking throughout the evening. As the evening was winding down, our entertainer was replaced by one of our own members, Steve Nannis, who played the piano for 20-30 minutes, and was then followed by another of our members, Herschel Podgur, who continued to play for an additional 30 minutes. For those that are unaware, we have many extremely talented members residing in our country club, but this turn of events was a first at Addison, hopefully not the last. Those who stayed, were treated to some very fine listening entertainment from two of our own. It was a GREAT!
With the holiday season and most of our guests recently returning to their northern homes, Saturday evening, Taste, our main dining room, featured an elegant sit down dinner with a very enjoyable duet playing and singing background music throughout the evening. Our choices of food varied, with additional healthy venues added to our delight. The food was absolutely amazing.  At our own club, we can enjoy eating delicious healthy entrees' with fine service and delightful music. Bravo to our staff, both in and out of our kitchen, and to our managers who help to make sure everything is just right and to our liking.

By the way, before we were seated in the dining room, we stopped off at Styr for some conversation and appetizers.  Many members were also there, either doing what we were doing or just simply dining at another venue.

Monday was Addison Reserve's annual "Ladies Member Guest Card Party Day" to benefit cancer research. 100% of the money collect goes to research, and their are no paid employees.  Over 260 ladies joined together to raise money for the cure. There was a lavish luncheon followed by a day of cards. All our participants had a wonderful time for a very good reason, To Stop Cancer, FOREVER. The beneficiary of this day is The Sylvester Cancer Institute. What a great organization to be a part of! 

Sunday evening was our Addison Reserve traditional family barbecue. As always, chicken, ribs, steak were the mainstay of the evening. Salads were also in abundance, all types for all palates. Fish, a la salmon was prepared in 3 different manners, and of course the veggies were present as well. For those who had any room left in their bellies, a wide choice of delectable desserts were offered, sugar free as well. There was something for everyone.
Tuesday afternoon, two of our own residents brought their 4 piece band to Styr to entertain our fellow residents with a jam session. Herschel Podgur, pianist, & Bob Galardi on his saxophone, along with their 2 accompanying musicians, played an assortment of show tunes, jazz and popular music to an enthralled audience of members and friends. We have talent here in Addison, we should do this more often.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY Larry Berman 1/6/18

HAPPY BIRTHDAYS Carol Silverman and her adorable twin Grandsons 1/6/18!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ann Friedman!   1/7/18
Fred Bollaci and Amy Marie are engaged! Congrats to the happy couple!

On Wednesday we had all four of our new Pickleball courts going simultaneously . Pickleball is really growing quickly. Watch out Mike McCarthy, pretty soon we will need 4 more courts! By the way, starting next Friday & every Friday there after, there will be free lessons given by our Pickleball staff to all new and beginning players, 
Pickleball 101.  It will probably involve  a sign up sheet and limited space, so call the tennis pro shop for more information.  We have even heard that Addison will be getting a pickleball ball machine soon to help with instruction. "Baby, we've come a long way!"



And so it begins!
The Christmas Holiday is officially over, and even though we all loved the beautiful lights, it's time to take them down until next year.

We  now have a New Travel Section, so when you are traveling or when you return from a great trip, drop us a line or two and include a snapshot of you there!

Irwin & Brenda Goldman are in St. Kitts, and having a great time. They traveled the Caribbean seas on the Celebrity Silhouette.  I'm sure that their weather was better than everyone else's!
