                                         Our mission is to provide social opportunities. Our goals are to make friends,
                                         participate, learn, and enjoy life.

                                         As September nears, those of us who have hung around to enjoy the summer
                                         weather begin to think about three things. First is that hurricane season peaks this
                                         month so we need to keep our emergency supplies well stocked. Second is that we
                                         hope to see temperatures moderating and humidity dropping. Third is that we will
         see a trickle of our “snowbird” friends coming back to PGI which signals the beginning of another “season.”

                                                                              Over the summer several activities were
                                                                              continued. Meet and Greet, Dine Around,

                                                                              were scheduled and by all reports well
