MILESTONES: Celebrating Exactly One Year as Your LFC Hosts...and Announcing a New Life Together!

As hosts/owners of the Lubbock Fun Club, we, Shane and Steph, would like to announce to all our readers that we were MARRIED night before last - July 30, 2008 - at Spirit Ranch, just north of Lubbock.

For a little perspective, we'd like to share a little history with you...since it all literally started "right here." In March of 2005, Steph volunteered to coordinate a singles group for the LFC in hopes of offering more opportunities for adult singles in Lubbock - thus the "SOS" (Singles Only Stuff) group was born. In April of that year, Shane discovered the LFC while doing a basic online search for "fun in Lubbock." Upon finding the Lubbock Fun Club website and signing up to receive the weekly "postcard" - which you are reading now - a magical dream was set in motion. Upon receiving that first weekly postcard, Shane read an announcement for learning a new game with a crazy name - Pickleball. Steph had organized the event to teach the singles group a fun game while offering some recreation in the process. Steph lined up her parents, Jim and Bonnie Newville - in town visiting from California (and national Pickleball champs, no less) - to teach the "class" that evening at Leroy Elmore Park. Shane thought the game sounded "interesting" and showed up that evening just to check it out. It would be fair to say that the game proved to be a "match made in heaven." For the better part of these last three years, we have laughed and shared more fun times with so many of you than we can count. And...exactly one year ago TODAY, we took the reins of the Lubbock Fun Club as "partners" - two singles brought together through this local website...each searching for a healthy outlet for fun, good times and "something different." Today, as your newly-married hosts, we are proud to pause and say with sincere happiness....thank goodness for the Lubbock Fun Club and the founder Sandy Parker, for putting it all together...literally making it possible for us to "find each other." It's been an amazing three years...and like the song says..."we've only just begun." Thanks to all of you for reading each week - we truly hope you get something out of our combined efforts. We look forward to starting another year as your hosts....and the first year of the rest of our lives together.

Shane and Steph

"The Music Man"
Hits the Stage Next Weekend

Based on a story by: Franklin Lacey
Book, Lyrics and Music by: Meredith Willson

Professor Harold Hill likes a challenge and when the other salesmen on the train west tell him that Iowa is the biggest test of sales ability, he gets off at River City. Marian the librarian doesn't buy the professor's line, but he convinces many of his other potential customers that the new pool table that has just been placed in the billiard parlor could mean "trouble in River City” . To keep the town's youngsters "moral after school", Hill forms the River City Boys Band. Includes favorite songs: Seventy Six Trombones, Gary Indiana, and Trouble in River City.
