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 hope to see you on February 8 for a pasty dinner. Read below for details. 

  1. For those who haven’t paid the annual dues of $10 / person. Ee will be collecting our annual dues at this meeting.
  2. The annual Pasty Dinner will be on February 8, 2017.  The cost of the pasties will be $5 / pasty. All pasties are hot pasties.  There will be no frozen pasty orders taken.  Each member can order one extra.  All pasty orders are to be prepaid at the January meeting, or by check made out to: Yooper Club of Michigan.  Checks can be mailed to our treasurer Della Davey.  Della’s address is 8325 SE 177th Bartram Loop, The Villages,FL  32162.  
  3. The reason for the necessity of prepaid is because there has been difficulty with members not showing when they have signed the sign-up sheets where counts were important.  The November and December meetings had more responders than attendees.  Orders were placed on the number of responders.  Consequently this unnecessarily cost the Yooper Club money from its treasury, your dues.
  4. We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.  We have a great group and we want to encourage you to come and enjoy the comradery of your fellow Yoopers.

Anyone with a connection to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, past or present, is welcome to join our club.  Annual dues in 2017 are being raised to $10.00 per person.  For more information, contact Kennie at 386 428-2436.
