Florida's Best 55+ Military Retirement Community
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Sunshine and rainbows are what we have been seeing throughout the month of October and we hope November will be the same.

Our IRCC golfers have been enjoying this incredible weather and one member, Nancy Carroll even achieved her first hole in one! Ever! Even though she has held the Champion title of the WGA presidents cup for 11 years, Nancy has never had a hole in one. Needless to say, she was very excited!

IRCC boasts activities galore, with over 40 groups to choose from, exquisite dining, an extensive maintenance program and a caring staff. Besides all the top amenities offered and country club living, IRCC is the most friendly, caring, and giving community you could ever imagine.

Spotlight on IRCC resident, DJ, and Line Dance teacher, Lee Wyatt
by Carolyn Cain

Everyone over the age of 55 looks back to a point in their lives when they picked up something new – something that stayed with them. 
For Lee Wyatt, it happened while he was teaching World & European History at West Point Academy. Lee and his wife Patsy had a friend who would DJ at the parties they attended. One night their friend asked Lee if he would DJ – his friend’s wife wanted to dance with her husband!
Well, one thing led to another, as they say, and before long he and Patsy were traveling to parties where Lee was invited to DJ.
Lee has always been musical (played rhythm guitar in a garage band in high school) and liked dancing (his mother made him take ballroom dance at an early age). Lee and Patsy moved to IRCC in 2003 and Lee could frequently be spotted on the dance floor .
