PRIORITIZED LIST OF PROJECTS FOR 2014
Spring Fling a Lot of Fun and Great Success
The 2014 Spring Fling sponsored by POCA for it's members and their guests was deemed a big success by POCA Board President Bob Cochran and the 159 attendees. The event started at 4:30 PM on Saturday, April 12th and continued until the last song, "Goodnight My Love", was played by DJ Ben Tucciaroni. Twenty-seven eager youngsters from our community participated in the Egg Hunt. When  the starting whistle was blown all of the participants scattered to find the prized candy filled eggs on the grounds of the Country Club of Sebring. Twenty minutes later the whistle was blown to summon all of the happy hunters.They were all given a chocolate bunny as well as a certificate for a personal pizza courtesy of the Country Club Grill.
All attendees were heard complimenting the delicious menu of ham, turkey, chicken tenders, deviled eggs, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy. A tasty brownie topped off the menu. Our thanks go out to Tiffany, CJ, and the Country Club of Sebring staff for a job well done in preparing and serving the food.
We wish to commend the Social Committee for the planning of this event. The committee members are Sharon DeMoe, Penny Kocarek, Martha Griffin, Ellie Mollendick, Delbert Nelson, Mark Theis and Claude Kracik. A tip of the hat goes out to Karen Kist and the spouses of the committee members for their assistance. Most of all it was all of the attendees that made this event a huge success.
If anyone has ideas about future events, would like to volunteer or just offer suggestions please contact Penny Kocarek at 863-633-0375.
