And this place gets used. Allow us to demonstrate.

A jam-packed event calendar

These are only a few Tamaya Events:

A Holiday Pop Up shopping event at the residents club, where many vendors are Tamaya residents exhibiting their artistic skills. It’s a great way to support your neighbors and get to know more of them. You might find something in common with a crafter of homemade gourmet vinegar, or a designer of handmade ornaments. Yummy seasonal drinks and munchies included.

The first residents’ golf tournament in July 2018 was such a success that we held our 2nd one this April. Will it become an annual necessity? We suspect so.

Tamyaa Events - MermaidOther events include Sundae Fundays, when attendees can build outrageous ice cream indulgences, and Poolside Carnivals, where a mermaid is apt to appear and a DJ spins awesome tunes.

Resident Appreciation events pop up on the regular, with catered food and drinks, and prizes such as $50 gift certificates. We’re also planning a spectacular Poolside Birthday Bash for Tamaya’s 5th anniversary this year.

Who wants to take January’s Polar Plunge at the pool? It’s all relative due to Florida’s mild winter seasons, but plenty of people do, then warm up at a hot chocolate bar afterwards, while kids enjoy a piñata contest.

Celebrate National Pie Day in March with — you guessed it — many tasty varieties. It’s a beneficial kid meet-and-greet, too, with older kids signing up to be neighborhood babysitters and families potentially able to find sitting help.
