A Yooper refers to anyone with a connection with Michigan's Upper Peninsula.Anyone with a connection to Michigan's Upper Penninsula is welcome to join.  Remember to bring your Villages ID or guest pass to the meeting.

We meet monthly, except in the summer, to get together.

We usually meet at the Savannah Center in the Rhett Butler room on the second Wednesday of the month at 6 pm to 8:50 pm. Some activities could change locations, especially picnics. So check back prior to a meeting. 

On May 14, we had our club picnic at Lake Miona County Park.  The weather was fine although there were scattered thunder storms elsewhere.  56 members attended.  

This was an appreciation celebration for all our members who attended.  All the food was provided by the club, pull-pork sandwiches, fried and baked chicken, baked beans, potato salad, chips & dip, an assortment of cookies and pop and water. It was our last meeting until October 8th.

Here’s wishing everyone a great summer wherever you are.  Stay safe and we’ll see you all in the fall. The next meeting is October 8, 2014.
