POPULAR SOCIAL ACTIVITIES FOR WINDRIDGE RESIDENTS 

DINE AROUND

This very popular activity takes place in owners’ homes, rather than the community room.  Owners take turns preparing one course of a four course meal, with host of the dinner serving the entrée.  With each subsequent meeting, course responsibility and the host rotates with the three other participants.  There are two “sessions”, one in early spring and summer and the other in the fall and early winter. 

If you enjoy good food and would like to share some with your neighbors, contact Marilyn Mart (317-542-1186) for more information.

CHEAP EATS – Out to lunch for less than $15

This fun group meets on the last Friday of each month.  Good food, good conversation, not much money – a great combination. 

FIRST FRIDAY SOCIAL

This well-attended monthly activity provides owners with an opportunity to visit neighbors’ unique houses, share your favorite appetizer and the beverage of your choice, all with some enjoyable socializing.  The event rotates each month meeting the first Friday of the month from 5-7 p.m.  

Email announcements with the next location are sent as reminders each month or you can look for the “Cocktail Flag” outside the host’s house.   Contact Lynda Ryker (317-507-4027) or the office to add your name to the email list to ensure you receive the monthly reminders.  Attendance is of course voluntary, but this is a great chance to meet your neighbors and share some wonderful food. 

NOTE: Unfortunately, First Friday has been temporarily suspended in response to the Covid Virus.  We will announce when it resumes.

GOLF

At various times, Windridge residents have enjoyed participating in a Windridge golfing group.  Currently, that group is inactive, simply because the previous group of golfers has dwindled.  But if a resident would like to re-activate that activity, simply visit the office and express an interest in chairing an organizational meeting for a new group.  We can send out an announcement and publicize the new group on this website.
