Message from VHA President, Phil Walker

by Phil Walker

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a chance to enjoy time with family and friends.  The spirit of the holidays can now be carried forward into 2020. As the new President of The VHA, I am looking forward to the opportunity to work alongside the many member-volunteers who make our organization strong.  I see the pride our neighborhood reps, area vice presidents, and board members have, and show, each day.  Our membership is known for volunteering in their own regions, plus for events throughout The Villages community.  Thank you for all you do. This special edition of The Voice showcases our 4th Annual Country & Western Hoedown on January 25th from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at The Polo Grounds.  The Hoedown is our major fundraiser to benefit The VHA’s Helping Hands program.  If you would like to volunteer to help at the Hoedown, there is still time to do so.  Contact me at 352-753-8618 or Throughout this Hoedown edition of The Voice you will find all you need to know about tickets, our website, entertainment, exhibits, activities, contests, our great sponsors, a map and schedule, and more.  We look forward to seeing you there!  In addition, you will also find information about our current monthly events and activities, plus a list of discounts available through our Merchants to Members program.  If you can’t make it to The Hoedown, I hope to have the opportunity to see you at one of our many functions offered throughout the year.  Membership DOES have its rewards! Sincerely, Phil Walker VHA President
