Our active Social Committee with the support of the Board of Directors
plans a variety of fun and interesting activities for the neighborhood throughout the year.
These events are a great way to get to know your neighbors, and are why we’re known as such a friendly community.
There are activities for children of all ages, and adults, too. Events_SP14_sack_race

 

A message from John Resuta, the Chair of the Social Committee:

I love brainstorming and getting ideas from our community of world travelers,
so if there is an event you think that our families would enjoy,
please feel free to contact me at admin@tgms.com (put “Social Committee” in the subject line)
NOTE: Running with the bulls… NOT going to happen, lol lol.

Cantamar Celebrated Mardi Gras!

We had a fabulous Mardi Gras Celebration
on Saturday, March 2nd at the Sandbar Sports Grill.
There was a good turnout and great food.
We celebrated with fun activities including the mask contest and
the selection of the royal court where guests drew pieces of paper to determine the court.
Guests who weren’t selected for the court were asked to wear the paper they drew.

We had a Great Visit from Santa!

Santa visited Cantamar Sunday afternoon, December 16th.
It was a wonderful afternoon with cookies and hot chocolate,
and kids throwing the football and frisbee.
There was even a slight breeze to keep Santa a little cooler.

We collected a variety of toys for the Cutler Bay Police Toy Drive
to help make this a great Christmas for children
who may not otherwise receive gifts.
Thanks to all who donated!

Congratulations to our Turkey Raffle Winner!

Congratulations to Lisa Cardali, the winner of this year’s Turkey Raffle!

Wishing Lisa, and all our residents, a very Happy Thanksgiving!


Another Spectacular Halloween Party!

Our new Butler figure greeted all the witches and goblins (and princesses and pirates)
at this year’s Halloween Party by lighting up and talking as they approached.
And the weather cooperated for a pleasant evening—not too hot.

We had great participation in our Apple Bobbing and Costume Contests.
Congratulations to the winners: Nathan and Michael in the Apple Bobbing Contests;
Arabella for the Under Age 5 Costume Contest and Jada in the Over Age 5 category.

Thanks to Comcast for providing the pizza,
and to our Social Committee for all their hard work putting this popular event together
and providing popcorn, cotton candy, and the goody bags of candy for the kids…
and of course, to all of our neighbors who came out in costume (and not) to enjoy this wonderful evening!

Many Thanks to our Board and Volunteers
