Social Events

 

Welcome to the social events section of the Eagle Point Mobile Home Park website. Eagle Point has much to offer and we invite you to participate in our many social activities.

The Social Committee sponsors most of the social events that take place throughout the year. Monthly calendars are provided to the residents detailing the activities that occur on a daily basis. These social calendars are also available in the office or on the website by clicking on the link in the box to the right.

Five activity groups (Sunseekers, Medley, Moonstones, Rock'in Robins and Eagles) organize and prepare special social activities from November through March. They host events such as the monthly salad card party, dinners, dances, trivia contests, casino night, Saturday coffee hour and the first Saturday free breakfast November thru March. 

Tickets for special events are sold in the Social Hall on Wednesdays, from 10-11 a.m., and on Saturday mornings during coffee hour. Posters detailing these special events are located on the bulletin boards.

The Social Hall houses a dining room, stage, kitchen and an activities room complete with WIFI.. Residents are welcome to use it when a special activity is not taking place. The library has many books, puzzles and videos available to borrow. There is a large screen TV, computer, DVD, and VCR that can be used by residents. Free Wi-Fi is available in the Social Hall and on the pool deck. Bulletin boards, in the hallway of the Social Hall, display notices about up-coming trips, items for sale and events happening around town.

Our heated swimming pool is located just outside of the Social Hall as well as a newly constructed patio area with barbeque grills available for use by the residents. 

The Wreck Room, located behind the park office, contains a poker table and two pool tables, which residents and their guests may use when the room is not being used for a meeting or scheduled event. Many card games, painting classes and other activities take place in the Wreck Room on a regular basis.

The Screaming Eagle Newsletter is published by the Social Committee from October through May.  It contains information on social events, news and up-dates from the president of the Eagle Point Board of Directors, happenings in the park and other important news-worthy items. The newsletter is emailed to residents and is available on the Eagle Point website by clicking on the Screaming Eagle Newsletter link. Those who do not have an email address and wish to receive the newsletter may have a black and white printed copy placed in their mail tube.  

The Social Committee is chaired by a member of the Eagle Point Board of Directors and meets on the first Wednesday of the month, at 10 a.m., in the Wreck Room. All residents are invited to attend.
