These Ladies work very hard for the enjoyment of all of Norris Shores. Please thank them, when you attend the events, for their planning, decorating and very good food!!

Christmas 2016-Rockin' At Rhonda's....Rhonda's Deli, that is! An unexpected location, but a delightful experience. 42 members attended and thoroughly enjoyed a dinner of BBQ ribs, Cornish game hens and plenty of sides. We played the funny Right/Left game for grab bag gift exchange, enjoyed the company of our neighbors and really had a good time. 

It's Fall Y'all...Fall celebration with Halloween costumes. Approximately 50 members attended. All were decked out in their Halloween craziest costumes. Members brought their favorite chili and lots of assorted other goodies. Ralph Shick played his harmonica tunes for us to enjoy. Scary fun was had by all!

Chillin' & Grillin':  Many members attended and had a great evening of grilling burgers and dogs along with all of the sides and desserts. Several heated games of Corn Hole followed dinner.

The Low Country Shrimp Boil was a huge success and a lot of fun. Close to 70 people attended and enjoyed the shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes from the boil. Everyone brought sides and desserts. There was food everywhere! We listened to music, played corn hole and caught up with friends that we haven't seen for awhile. New neighbors introduced themselves and were welcomed by all.
The Social Committee worked extremely hard to host this event and thank all of those who attended. This was the largest social event in Norris Shores history.  more photos

2016 Kentucky Derby Party
Ron Pameijer hooked up an antenna for the Social Committee. So a bunch of neighbors got together at the Marina Pavilion to watch the 2016 Kentucky Derby. We participated in all of the Derby Day traditions including singing "My Old Kentucky Home" and enjoying Mint Juleps.  Prizes were given out for the best and worst Derby hats and bow ties.

Thanks to everyone who joined us in Sunset Bay for our Holiday Party December 5th.  We are blessed to live in this development with so many wonderful neighbors!
Many thanks to Sunset Bay for offering the use of their
beautiful clubhouse!
Happy New Year!

On a cool evening, Friday the 13th, property owners from Norris Shores gathered at the Marina.  
BBQ pork, chicken, salads, and desserts were served.  It was the perfect crisp evening to sit around the campfire and visit.  Look closely at the flames. It appears that Puff the Magic Dragon joined us!

Wine Tasting Event 2014

The wine tasting event at the Norris Shores Marina July 25th, was a success, in spite of some"NOs."  NO vendor, NO wine, NO tasting!  Our vendor got lost on his way from Halls.  But owners who attended the event adapted, made some adjustments, and the evening proceeded.  The atmosphere was relaxed and congenial as people shared appetizers, mingled, and visited with each other.  We are grateful to everyone who was there and helped turn a potential disaster into a delightful evening.  That's why we love living in Norris Shores!

Norris Shores Social Committee


The Norris Shores Social Club began over 10 years ago when neighbors gathered together for a Halloween party.  Later, plans were made to include an annual Christmas party.  Today, the Social Committee plans events almost monthly throughout the year.  The committee hopes to provide opportunities where residents of Norris Shores can gather, socialize, and welcome new residents to our development.

Additional events of the past have included a Chili Cook-off, a Pot Luck Dinner, a Hawiian Luau, a Wine Tasting Event, and a Beer Tasting Event.  The committee provides a lunch in March for all the Clean –Up workers and they provide part of the food for the Norris Shores Annual Meeting in October.  We invite you to browse through picture albums of some events below.

Committee members welcome your ideas, comments, and suggestions.  Please feel free to email them to us. You may go to Contact Us and select "Social Committee." If you would like to be on the committee, please contact one of the Co- Chairs.

Our next Social Committee meeting will be October 27, at Susan Grecco's home,  at 10:30.
