News from Ted

TedHappy Thanksgiving!!!

Join us for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner in the Lakeside Restaurant from 4 to 8 PM. Enjoy Live Flute w/ Susan from 5 to 7 PM during dinner. Make reservations today. They are booking up fast!

DJ Xavier will be entertaining everyone on Friday with his Suicide Karaoke. They do regular Karaoke first. For the Suicide Karaoke portion of the evening, singers sign up but don't know what song until they are called up. You never know what you are going to get, but you do get a prize for participating. It's always lots of fun!

If you enjoy craft making, come down to Scuttlebutts on Saturday at 4 PM for Crafts & Cocktails w/ Melanie. You buy a drink and get craft materials. They make something different and fun every month. Then stick around for the Dance w/ Live Music by Cove favorites, A Taste Of Love.

For all of our Canadians, we've got a Grey Cup Viewing Party on Sunday at 3 PM. What's the Grey Cup? We have no idea, but Canadians seem to want to watch it! Actually, it's the Canadian Football League's Championship Game. We'll have the game on the big screens with extra speakers so everyone can hear. There will be Happy Hour prices throughout the game until closing, plus BBQ & food specials, and prizes with every score!


The Office will be closing at 3 PM for Thanksgiving. If you need anything from the store, be sure to get it early.


Our Employee Christmas Party is coming up soon, Wednesday, December 10th. This is the one time of the year when Cypress Cove is effectively closed. The Office will close at 7 PM, and Cheeks will be closing at 8 PM, so that all employees may attend.

It's a fun party. Employees enjoy a complimentary dinner, open bar and dancing all night. The Cove gives a small Christmas gift to each of the employees, but we also give out door prizes. The door prizes are mostly donated by appreciative members and guests, with a few area businesses kicking in.

If you'd like to give a little something back to the employees who take such good care of you all year, please drop off your door prize donations to the Activities Office. No gift is too small. It's just fun to win something!

Thank you and Merry Christmas!!!


Our new Resort Community Channel (732) has given me a bit of trouble this week. We only had it set up for a few days and Google discontinued the Calendar API that I was using. I'm waiting for the software company to be updated to use the new API. In the meantime, I have come up with a work around solution. The channel is currently working with this solution.


Around the Cove this week:

The Murder Mystery Dinner Show got everyone evolved in the fun

Elvis (KennE) was in the building at the Saturday night show & dance

The Snowbirds have arrived!

Have you got your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" t-shirt yet?

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
One of our members at Crater Lake!

By the way, I just want to thank everyone for doing this. It has been so much fun getting new pictures from exotic locations all over the US and the world! We have the absolute best, most loyal members I can imagine. I am so grateful.

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
Send us a pic!


Someone suggested that we create a page on our website going into a bit more detail on our various classes and activities. If you are responsible for one of the scheduled classes or activities, please email me a brief description. One sentence would be okay, more if needed, but just a summary for new visitors. I'm thinking of everything from bingo to exercises to petanque. Thank you in advance!


Regis handles activities, but I put together the weekly newsletter. I'm always looking for content. If you have anything that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email submissions to


We received some very nice new reviews on TripAdvisor. Thank you! If you would like to help spread the word, you can review us using the link below.
