Getting to Know Your Neighbors

By Liz Blankespoor, Social Committee Chair

After a winter lull, Lakeporters are once again ready to mix and mingle.

C:\Users\Mary Sapp\Dropbox\Personal\Lakeport\Ripples\wine-and-cheese-pairing-guide-2.jpgWe’ll kick the social season off with a TGIF hosted by Michelle Simoneau and Michel Zimet, 1934 Lakeport Way, on Friday, April 14, starting at 6:00 pm.  Beverages will be provided, but you are asked to kindly bring an appetizer. Running too late to pick something up? Just bring yourself. This is a great way to meet your neighbors.

Like Wine? You know a white from a red, but what on earth do earthy, foxy, texture, bouquet, and complexity have to do with it? Join our newly-formed Lakeport Wine Club and find out. Dave Mackie of the Wine Cabinet will discuss varietals (i.e., grapes) at our first meeting, “An Introduction to Wine,” on Wednesday, March 29, 7:00 pm at 2003 Lakeport Way. This is sure to be an exciting new club so we hope you will attend. Please RSVP to

How about a home tour? Several homeowners have already expressed interest. Would you be willing to add your home to the list?

And for our young Lakeporters...

Do you have any suggestions for clubs/social activities? Ideas for various clubs have been floated; we just need to determine interest. Please let us know if you would like to join any of the following clubs: card clubs (bridge, poker, etc.), history club, mah jongg club, play-reading club, and dinner club. And as mentioned above, how about a Lakeport house tour?

Please submit any ideas/suggestions to
