Le Rondelet’s annual Christmas party wouldn’t be the same without the lighting of the tree under the supervision of long-time resident Pinkee Lauridsen and HOA President Ed Lazarski.
Le Rondelet Honors Holiday Tradition with Annual Tree Lighting
Residents of Le Rondelet honored a long-standing holiday tradition, Dec. 8, with the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony, cocktail party and buffet. HOA President Ed Lazarski introduced Pinkee Lauridsen who, dressed in a sparkly red holiday blouse, conducted the countdown that ignited a blaze of dazzling light from the beautifully decorated tree.
Some 75 residents enjoyed champagne provided by Monika and Jack Hardy, and caught up on the years’ events with their neighbors before trooping down to the Cabaña for a delicious Mexican buffet – and more champagne.
Making arrangements for this year’s holiday celebration were Nina Ladzinski, who – along with Sofia and Alex – decorated for the holiday. Nina, Nancy Lazarski, and Nick arranged for the buffet dinner, and were assisted with other arrangements by Margo Davis, David Winters, and Bob Stewart.
The party got the holiday season off to a festive beginning, and set the tone for the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations.

Le Ron Library Completes Billiard Table Restoration
(March 12, 2019)  The Le Rondelet Library has completed restoration of the billiard table, a major feature of the second-floor recreation room.
Technicians last week installed a new Kelly green, tournament-quality cloth to replace one that had been damaged through years of play.  The Library also purchased a new set of Belgian-made billiard balls to replace the old set.
In addition to the new cloth and billiard balls, our maintenance employee, Alex, refinished the billiard table legs.  Several years ago, the Library purchased a new set of cues, and a set of snooker balls.
In addition to the billiard table, the Library stocks more than 600 books, and some 300 DVDs, as well as a number of jigsaw puzzles.  All these were donated by residents.  Check-out and check-in is not required, but books should be returned to the Library after use.
The Library accepts hardbound and paperback books that are in good shape, and prefers books published within the past five years.

Le Rondelet Celebrates Independence Day, 2018
Another fun and successful Independence Day celebration around the pool at Le Rondelet included a wide array of delectable dishes served buffet-style in the Cabaña.
Nina Ladzinski planned an enjoyable event that highlighted the summer season. And she worked with Sofia and Alex to decorate the poolside area in red, white and blue for the occasion. Some 50 residents and guests turned out for the event.
Bob Stewart was at the grill serving up hamburgers, hot dogs and barbecued chicken. Residents contributed wonderful side dishes and beautiful, tasty desserts.
Many residents topped off the evening by watching the Big Bay Bang fireworks show from their balconies.
A nice ending to the nation’s 242nd birthday!

Le Rondelet Christmas Celebration 2017
Le Rondelet residents continued the community’s annual holiday tradition, Dec. 10, with the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas tree.
HOA President Ed Lazarski welcomed residents to the event with a champagne toast to the season.  He then introduced Pinkee Lauridsen, one of Le Rondelet’s original residents, who gave the countdown that produced a blaze of light and brought the tree to life for the celebration.  
After the cocktail hour, everyone adjourned to the Cabaña where Nina Ladzinski and her committee had arranged for a holiday feast of delicious entrees, side dishes, and dessert.
Wine, good food, fellowship.  The celebration was a fitting occasion to launch the Christmas season.

Le Rondelet Celebrates Newly Renovated Cabaña With Ribbon-Cutting Party
The ceremonial cutting of a red ribbon formally opened the newly renovated
Cabaña.  From left are Joann Landis, committee chair Jennifer Blough, HOA

It was a striking contrast that greeted Le Rondelet residents, Aug. 10, during a ribbon-cutting party in the newly renovated Cabaña. 
Gone was the outdated appearance.  In its place was new flooring, refurbished seating with brightly colored cushions, fresh wallpaper, attractive artwork that reflects the color scheme, all-new kitchen appliances and cabinetry, new ceiling fans and lighting – décor that was welcoming and pleasing to the eye.
“It was a good effort, and a great outcome,” HOA President Ed Lazarski said during welcoming remarks.  As some 60 residents applauded, committee chair Jennifer Blough snipped the ceremonial red ribbon to formally open the Cabaña.  Joining her during the ceremony were Lazarski, and committee members Joann Landis, Kappy Paul and Jan Morton.
Then, it was party time.  Joan Gregor and her committee – Nina Ladzinski, Sandy Perlatti, and Rita Orcino – had assembled a feast that included wine and champagne, a variety of hors d’eurvers and salad, dip and chips, cookies, cakes, and fruit.
The committee also arranged an “ice-breaker” to start the festivities.  Each resident was given a balloon which, when popped, revealed a slip of paper with a question.  The guests circulated among the crowd asking such questions as, “What’s your favorite color, and why?”; “What’s your favorite university?”; and “What was your first job?”  The game got the evening going, and provoked laughter and conversation.
The Cabaña – like the Library – now will be open during business hours every weekday for use by residents and their guests.  Residents can sign out a key to the Cabaña from building manager Nick Linarelli.  The resident who signs out the key will be responsible for ensuring that the room is left in a clean and presentable condition.
To use the Cabaña at night or on weekends, or for a private event after business hours, residents must make a reservation with the building manager.  A $25 fee, and a refundable $50 deposit, will be required to use the room for a private event.

Monthly Game Night Morphs
Into Le Rondelet Social Event
Le Rondelet’s second-Tuesday game nights have evolved into a social event that’s growing more popular every month.  All residents and their guests are invited to attend.
Some 30 residents – owners and tenants alike – attended the most recent social event on Tuesday, April 12, in the Lobby.  There were plenty of snacks, wine, and soft drinks – as well as conversation in every corner of the Lobby seating area.
And, eventually, a group gathered to play games at tables set up near the front of the room.
Joan Gregor worked with Rita Orcini and others to organize the social event.  Notices are placed in the Lobby and in the elevators announcing the events, which are scheduled at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month.
Game nights and the social are normally held in the Cabana, but due to the on-going renovation, that room has not been available the last two months.  The event will be moved back to the Cabana when the construction is completed.
Resident Karen Miller and game night organizer Joan Gregor paused at a table
loaded with refreshments.
It was a friendly gathering that filled the Le Rondelet lobby during the April 12
social event.
