Colony Cove Riders Golf Cart Club commemorated Memorial Day in their own unique way

While it is true that members of the Golf Cart Club at Colony Cove, Ellenton, like to enjoy life and have fun, they do have a sense of community as well, says Vickie Cochran.

Here's her report on the way the Colony Cove community observed Memorial Day:

Over  60 people lined U.S. 301 at 8 a.m., waving their flags to passersby. Carts were decorated in red, white and blue and the golf carts paraded around the community for the residents to enjoy as well.

The parade was led by Sherri and Tony Stamper who escorted Grand Marshals Bob and Marie Overgaard.

More than 70 carts participated in the parade. Patriotic music was provided by a sound system on the golf cart owned by Vickie Cochran.

The parade lasted about an hour and was followed by a memorial ceremony led by Russ Uboldi, with a reading of Flanders Fields read by Captain Robert Kain and patriotic songs.

 A luncheon was provided by Equity Lifestyles and served by members of the Friendly Social club. A good time was had by all. Thank you everyone involved in helping to make the holiday a true remembrance of our fallen heroes.

Keep reading to see what the Colony Cove Riders golf cart club will be up to in the coming months. Some great and fun events will be taking place. Just a teaser: '50's parade and sock hop this month.  Get out those poodle skirts and saddle oxfords and slick back that hair and chew lots of bubble gum.
