MFGRC Christmas Party and Annual Meeting

The Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club will hold its annual Christmas Party and final general meeting of the year on Saturday, Dec. 16, at 6 p.m. at the home of club vice president Ann Rowe in Sorrento, FL.

The club will provide baked turkey but members should bring side dishes and desserts for the dinner.

Also, club members can bring a wrapped gift in the $20 value range for a fun Chinese gift exchange. Gifts can be dog-related but don’t have to be. Participation in the gift exchange is optional.

During the meeting, club members will elect board members and officers for 2018. Also, the recipients of the club’s year-end awards will be announced and a drawing will be held for the winner of the club’s 50-50 Raffle to benefit the Smiling Blue Skies Canine Cancer Fund.

DIRECTIONS TO ANN’S HOME (address is 23840 Oak Valley Lane, Sorrento, FL, 32776):

From the South:

Take the Florida Turnpike North past the Turkey Lake Service Plaza. Follow sign for Apopka 429. Stay on 429 and follow the signs to Mount Dora and Plymouth Sorrento Road. Go left on Plymouth Sorrento until the road ends at Hwy 46. Turn right on Hwy 46 and at the next light go Left Hwy 437. At the next light take a Left onto Wolf Branch Road. Go 4/10 of a mile and take a Right onto Equestrian Trail. The next left is Oak Valley and Ann’s driveway is on the Left. You can also pick up the 429 off of I-4 just past Hwy 27.

From I-4 North of Orlando:

Take the exit for the Seminole Mall (#101C) and turn onto Hwy. 46. Take 46 West toward Mt. Dora 15 miles to intersection with 437, at a stoplight. Turn RIGHT onto 437. Go 4/10 of a mile on 437, and then turn LEFT onto Wolf Branch Rd. (there is no right turn here). Drive 4/10 of a mile, where you’ll see a street sign for Equestrian Trail on the RIGHT – turn in here. Equestrian Trail is a private road, so it’s kind of narrow. Take the first LEFT on Equestrian – this is OAK Valley Lane. Ann’s property is the first one on the left.

From Tampa/Lakeland:

Drive east on I-4 toward Orlando. You’ll want the second exit after you pass the exit for Hwy. 27; this is the 429 toll road. Follow sign for Apopka 429. Stay on 429 and follow the signs to Mount Dora and Plymouth Sorrento Road. Go left on Plymouth Sorrento until the road ends at Hwy 46. Turn right on Hwy 46 and at the next light, go Left on Hwy 437. At the next light, take a Left onto Wolf Branch Road. Go 4/10 of a mile and take a Right onto Equestrian Trail. The next left is Oak Valley and Ann’s driveway is on the Left. You can also pick up the 429 off of I-4 just past Hwy 27.
