"An Afternoon Tea on the Titanic"


2:00-4:00pm. Silverthorn Country Club, 4550 Golf Club Lane, Spring Hill. The hilariously funny comedy skit will be presented by professional actors Martin Hillier and Peter Konowicz, who state, "We are going to whisk you off to 1912 for a tongue in cheek look back at all the goings on aboard the world's most famous luxury submarine!" In the outrageous comic sketch, the uptight and humorless Scottish 1st Officer of Titanic, William McMaster Murdoch, will desperately try to convince the world's richest man, Mr. Benjamin Guggenheim, in his befuddled after dinner state, that he should follow him to the last life boat before the ship sinks, with unexpected and hilarious results! "Titanic may be the bottom of the ocean but we've plumbed the depths of these two jokers," he added. Tea and Crumpets will be served. Admission is free and open to all who wish an opportunity to learn about the wonderful programs offered to seniors in our community through the H2U Partner's Club and the Oak Hill Hospital volunteer association. For more information, call 352-597-6383.

Things to Do in Hernando County Florida Now through September 24, 2014

 

 

It's open season for scallops in Hernando County!

Diving for your own diner is a fun and unique opportunity for visitors and locals alike; from June 28 – Sept 24, 2014, scallops await divers of all ages in the shallow waters of the Gulf.

 

Scallop diving is both easy and inexpensive; all that is required is a boat (or boat captain that will deliver you to the scallop beds), a swim mask, snorkel, small mesh bag and a divers-down flag (required by law). In shallow water, it is possible to wade for scallops in the seagrass, or to collect them from a shallow-draft boat using a dip net or landing net, but these methods are not very productive. Most scallopers go by boat into water 4 to 10 feet deep where they anchor, put up their dive flag, and snorkel over the beds, collecting the scallops by hand and placing them into a small mesh bag tied to their waists. (Don't put them into your pockets, they pinch!) Visit http://www.naturallyhernando.org/things-to-do/scallops for more information.
