Book Signing at the Cove Book Club

Cove Book Club will host, for the first time ever, an author signing at our Jan 19, 2023, meeting in the Clubhouse at 3:30. Join us and meet fellow Cove member, Bob Chenoweth, who has written a wild and crazy book about a nudist where even one of our own appears in the pages of the book! Buy a copy of Naked as a Jaybird at the Moon-Your-Mama Bar and Grill and Bob will autograph it for you! Or bring your existing copy, he’ll sign that, too!  

Everyone is welcome, even if you didn’t read the book, to learn how he discovered his storyline, wrote, and then published his novel. Refreshments will be served. Jan. 19, 3:30 at the Club House.  

A Taste of Love at Lakeside Restaurant

Join us at Lakeside on Saturday, January 21 at 7 pm as we dance the night away with A Taste of Love. Our amazing bartenders will be pouring your favorite drinks all evening.


Urban Sketching Meeting

Join the Urban Sketchers on January 21 at 1 PM in the game room as they share some ideas for making a sketchbook to record your experiences. February is a wonderful month for drawing opportunities. Contact Anna Rappaport for more information. 

Full Moon Gathering

The Full Moon Gathering will be held on the shores of Lake Brown at Cypress Cove on February 5 at the campfire circle next to Lake Brown. The gathering begins at 6 pm. Join us to celebrate the once-a-month celestial event. If you have a musical instrument, please bring it. We welcome all newcomers to our event and encourage participation. The goal is to expand their circle for all those who love nature and yearn to listen to the native rhythms that fill our souls with happiness and joy. We can always use help getting our fire started before the event depending on the weather conditions.

According to Farmer's Almanac, this month's moon is described as the Full Snow Moon. In the 1760s, Captain Jonathan Carver, who had visited the Naudowessie (Dakota) and others, wrote that the name used for this period was the Snow Moon, “because more snow commonly falls during this month than any other in the winter.” 

Mardi Gras at Cypress Cove

It's almost Mardi Gras time. More information will be coming in the following weeks, but we want you to get a head start on designing those Lamp Posts. Cypress Cove is sponsoring the Lamp Post Decorating contest this year. The theme for this year's contest is Heart Of The Cove. Get creative and get started on your masterpiece early.

Please sign up at the activities door in the main office. Sign-up and lamp post decorations must be completed before Monday, February 20th in order to be judged.

1st place is $200 in Cove Coins.
2nd place is $100 in Cove Coins.
3rd place is $50 in Cove Coins.

Give it your all, and let's see those lamp posts! The winner will be announced at 4 pm at the West Pool. Please incorporate your number on your post for judging.  Sign up with your name & lot number.

The parade will take place at 1 pm on February 21, so start designing those floats. After the parade, we will see you at the West Pool for A Taste of Love at 2 pm.

Library Seeks Volunteer Help

The American Nudist Research Library is now open six afternoons a week—like they were before COVID. That is thanks to the efforts of seasonal volunteers. They could use a couple more year-round volunteers to run the library one afternoon each week.

Right now, our biggest need is for volunteers to scan magazines, books, and loose papers—also for people to put those papers in chronological order before scanning.  Seasonal or occasional volunteers are welcome. To find out more, go to the library on a Tuesday afternoon and talk with library president Paul LeValley.

Over the past few months, the library has bought copies of children's books about nudism. They now have every preschool through high school book that they know about.  Their video collection has also grown, and library members can check them out. Go in and see all the new things the library has to offer.

Shania Twain says posing nude for new album helped her heal from childhood trauma

Well, that's what we've been saying! People need to be nude to heal from all types of things. Maybe you have a body image issue. It's helped so many people.

"...But what attracted the most attention to Shania's new material is that she posed completely nude for the promotional artwork for her new album. At the age of 57, she looks absolutely incredible and will no doubt be the envy of people much younger than her." Read the full story HERE.

Spencer Tunick: Photographer of Mass Nude Photos

We always like to share his work. Creating works of art from nude people.

"Photographer Spencer Tunick has captured groups of nudes in close to 100 public spaces all over the world. His largest masterpiece was a group of 18,000 people who took off their clothes in Mexico City’s Zocalo Square, the heart of the ancient Aztec empire. Tunick started in the early 1990s with individuals and small groups. In 1994 he organized a group photo with 28 people in front of the United Nations in New York City, transforming his work – from just photography to installation and performance." Read the full story HERE.
