Yooper Flag

The Michigan Yoopers is a social club in The Villages, Florida.

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.  

We are sorry to say that due to the unavailability of room space at the rec. centers the May meeting of the Michigan Yoopers has to be cancelled.  We would like to thank those who attended the picnic outing at Paradise Center.  It was a great outing with about 70 members in attendance.  We would also like to thank all of the membership for their support during this current season.  Without you we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy the gatherings and events that were planned.  We wish all a happy, healthy, and wonderful summer.  We are looking forward to our next year and to be able to enjoy the fun things we are considering to do with the Michigan Yoopers Club.  See you next October.

Anyone with a connection to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, past or present, is welcome to join our club.  Annual dues are $5.00 per person.  For more information, contact Kennie at 386 428-2436.
