Every Chartered Club will now have an even more difficult time recruiting volunteers for their Board of Directors or even helping out with events. We have a difficult time now but I feel our GM is going to make it impossible. The next step for any of these Chartered Clubs is to disband. How would you like to be without the wonderful entertainment the Entertainment Club brings to our doorstep? Or, what if our largest club (Women’s Club) ceased to exist? These new rules and regulations from Lifestyle Committee and our GM, whose only job should be to manage not dictate, affect every single person in Sun City Anthem.
I agree with Rana, I have lived here 14 years and I have not seen one single resident friendly board. Oh, they all make promises and we believe and vote for them, but I’m afraid the “power genie” takes over when they are sworn into office and the new members become mesmerized by the fact that they have so many people under their control. This isn’t the place I dreamed of moving to many years ago. Had I had any way to know what was to become of the quality of life I would have certainly not spent a great part of my retirement funds on a home here.
Like you, I live on a fixed income….some of us are more “fixed” then others, but Social Security and diminishing investments affect many of us.
The Entertainment Club vowed from the very beginning to bring you professional entertainment at reasonable prices and we have kept that promise. Our shows have always been only $15 for members, the only exception being our dinner/show gala in December which we have kept at $30 for members, and membership is only $10 annually. Look at the prices Anthem management charges for their professional shows. Seems like a ripoff to me.
