Please send me an email (or just reply to this one) letting me know that you've signed up. I'd like to keep track of how many we have. There's a minimum that must be met or they will not come out.

Rock Pink and Cypress Cove have been working for a long time to try to make this happen. They want to show appreciation for all of the support they've received from our community.

We think this is a wonderful addition to the Nude-A-Palooza event that will really bring focus to the cause we are supporting. This is a valuable service for those who need it. The more women who sign up, the more likely this is to happen. Please don't delay. You'll be helping others and enjoying the convenience of not having to drive into town for your next Mammogram.

News from Ted

TedWe had 2 brand new events at Cypress Cove last weekend, BEERFEST and Cigars & Cocktails.

I was doing the parks with my kids, so unfortunately I missed both events. I was really looking forward to trying some of those beers! But I've only heard good things. I'm sure both events will return.

Also last weekend, Herman raised $2,113 with his Cheesecake Bake Sale for a Cause! Herman donated the cost all of the ingredients and a considerable amount of time. All funds collected will be added to the total for Nude-A-Palooza and Rock Pink.

Herman's Cheesecake Sale

Herman is an amazing asset to Cypress Cove. We thank him for all of his efforts, as well as all of his customers who helped to raise so much money while enjoying delicious cheesecake!


This weekend is Nude-A-Palooza VII. I can't believe it's here already. We've got a great selection of bands in this year's line up. I think the Adele in particular will be a real stand out. I saw her perform in Orlando and was blown away.

Also this weekend, we have Karaoke w/ Roland & Melanie on Thursday night, and a Streak at Cheeks w/ DJ Xavier on Friday night.

Saturday starts out with music in the restaurant at 8 am with Susan & Marilyn, a rare breakfast treat. Gates open for the big event at 11:30 am. Throughout the day, talented tribute artists will take the stage as: The Blues BrothersJim Croce, Sheryl CrowAdeleTom Petty, and The Beach Boys.

Inside, A Taste Of Love will take the stage from 4-8 PM for wonderful dinner & dancing. Come at 8 PM for the After Party w/ DJ Xavier from 8 to midnight.

In year's past, we've required a Nude-A-Palooza ticket to attend dinner and the After Party. This year we've decided to experiment with opening the gates at for dinner at 7 PM. So if you'd like to have dinner at Lakeside, but you can't make it out for the big event, you may now book reservations for 7 PM or later. And all are invited to the After Party!

Then Sunday, the theme continues with the Women's Center for Radiology providing mammograms at Cypress Cove. This was set up and paid for by Rock Pink, who really wanted to show their appreciation for all that Cypress Cove has done for them over the years. They've proven to be a wonderful partner!


Our second building is now fully remodeled and will officially open this weekend! If you haven't seen the new rooms yet, they are quite an upgrade. Tile floors, granite countertops, ceiling fans, and all new everything!   :)

New Rooms


I'm hoping to be able to preview our new Cypress Cove Community Channel next week. It will be a channel on all Brighthouse televisions, including those in the campground and residential park, that will list our daily calendar and upcoming events. I think it will be really nice. Stay tuned!

I've also been working for several months on a completely new website. It's coming along nicely. I'll provide a sneak peak once we get a bit closer.

Have you got your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" t-shirt yet?

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
One of our Residents at Cap D'Agde in France!

By the way, I just want to thank everyone for doing this. It has been so much fun getting new pictures from exotic locations all over the US and the world! We have the absolute best, most loyal members I can imagine. I am so grateful.

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
Send us a pic!


Someone suggested that we create a page on our website going into a bit more detail on our various classes and activities. If you are responsible for one of the scheduled classes or activities, please email me a brief description. One sentence would be okay, more if needed, but just a summary for new visitors. I'm thinking of everything from bingo to exercises to petanque. Thank you in advance!


Regis handles activities, but I put together the weekly newsletter. I'm always looking for content. If you have anything that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email submissions to


We received some very nice new reviews on TripAdvisor. Thank you! If you would like to help spread the word, you can review us using the link below.
