Volunteers are the secret to PC Singles Club success

Pat Milich

The mission of the PebbleCreek Singles Club is to provide a welcoming environment and a safe haven for singles to feel comfortable participating in a broad spectrum of activities and events with others who share similar interests and life experiences.

This unique organization represents a diversified group of energetic and fun-loving men and women who enjoy each other’s company at community run events, as well as special activities planned and organized on a monthly basis by a dedicated team of club leaders and volunteers.

In 2017, the PC Singles Club celebrated its 20th anniversary. The club was started by a small group of visionary volunteers that realized the PebbleCreek Homeowners Association and other community groups offered a lot of great activities but many of them were not geared toward the growing single population. Over the years, thanks to the hard work and dedication of many great volunteers who assumed leadership roles, the club has grown from its original 25 members to over 175 members.

The club is committed to representing the interests of its membership. Each month’s calendar of events includes social, cultural and sporting events, such as seasonal parties, game and movie nights, Sunday brunch and a movie, hiking, trips to local landmarks and festivals, river rafting, a day at the racetrack and spring training baseball games. Members are encouraged to get involved by suggesting new activities and events and by joining the Activities Committee which oversees the planning process and the finalization of monthly events calendars.

All PebbleCreek single adults, homeowners, renters and snowbirds are welcome. New members are greeted warmly by a specially trained mentor who will guide them through the registration process, help them understand the sign-up process for activities and events and encourage them to participate in all the club has to offer its members.

The PC Singles meet monthly on the first Sunday of the month in the Ballroom of the Tuscany Falls Clubhouse. Registration of new members begins at 2:15 p.m. Sign up for activities and events starts at 2:30 p.m., and a general membership meeting takes place at 3:00 p.m. After the meeting the camaraderie continues in the Long Drive Lounge where members spend a lively social hour prior to moving on to dinner at a local restaurant.

A new website has been developed by Dan Miczek, a former president of the club, who along with volunteers Judy Shaffer and Peggy Kuffner put in many hours a week administering the site by posting a list of activities, complete with sign-up sheets and information about cost, deadlines and transportation availability. Single residents of PebbleCreek interested in joining the club are encouraged to visit the site at www.pebblecreeksingles.com.
