Who doesn’t remember those cold winter nights in December, the air filled with great smells from your mother’s kitchen and your emotions full of anticipation what the Samichlaus and his helpers might have to say this year. I think I was a good person this past year and I hope that Samichlaus doesn’t remember all my mischievous moments.

So now that we are all grown up, we don’t want to loose this wonderful tradition. We will celebrate our Chlaushöck as we do every year.

Saturday December 10 starting at 16:00 (4 pm). Deadline for registration is November 30.

The Clubhouse at Silverlakes

13035 Lakehurst Court

Fort Myers, FL 33913

(When you get to the gate, enter code 525890 to gain access. The open gate key will change from grey to green. Press the green button and the gate will open.

Turn immediately left after the gate onto Lakeland Circle, continue for about 100 yards then turn right onto Lakehurst Court and the clubhouse will be on your right. Should the parking lot be full, you can park along the road but please do not block any of the driveways.)

Cost for this event will be $30 for members and $35 for guests.

The meal for our Chlaushoek will be the traditional hot Swiss Fleischkaese with yummy mustard, potato salad and delicious bread.

Feel free to bring your own beverages, including water, soda and alcoholic drinks.

The club will provide the cups, plates, cutlery and napkins.

As a repeat from last year’s Chlaushoeck, we welcome the Christmas Cookie desert bar. We invite you to bake your favorite Christmas Cookie and bring it to share with your friends. Let’s see how many different yummy cookies will show up. I have my favorite in mind already!

Please sign up online at your earliest convenience or send your intentions to Lily Kraft or call her at (707) 880-4707.

(venue does not allow pets or animals)

For now, make sure that the Samichlaus remembers you well and start practicing your baking skills.
