THE CLUB AT BOCA POINTE AND ME: A TYPICAL DAY FOR A NYC RETIRED TEACHER

When Sue Kotkin retired from teaching in the New York school system 10 years ago, she and her husband, Jerry, decided to rent at Boca Pointe. Ultimately, they  bought a home there because it was their passion to be part of a “5-star adult camp ” –the Club at Boca Pointe.  This is Sue’s typical daily routine.

My mornings begin with physical enhancement. I enjoy playing tennis on one of 29 well-maintained clay courts. Boca Pointe has 3 USPTA professionals that provide instruction and programs to meet everyone’s needs and abilities. After I play tennis, I workout at the athletic center. Classes are provided and supervised by a caring and knowledgeable staff.

Next it is a shower, change of clothes, and off to lunch I go with friends to the Grand Cafe or Center Court.

Afternoons are a time to stimulate my mind. Bridge, canasta, Mah Jong or small group discussions about a book with my Book Club, to name a few, are shared with friends at Boca Pointe.

In the evenings, my husband and I enjoy a scrumptious dinner, at the Grand Cafe or in the Main dining room, which is provided by Chef Terry and his welcoming and dedicated staff.

Night activities include participation in lectures from FAU professors, or poker, or couples canasta, or Mah Jong, or duplicate bridge, or social entertainment activities provided by the renown Jane Young and her accommodating staff.  There are trips to various theaters to see Broadway productions, shopping, cruises as well as top-notch entertainment right in the main clubhouse.  There’s nothing better than Friday nights having a great dinner followed by dancing and drinks in the lounge with different musical groups and every each week.

By the end of the day, we are ready for the well-known Boca midnight—10 p.m.
