MUCH TO Love
Charlene and Bob Schmitt have seen it all at Lakewood
;anch. Not only were they one of the first 50 families, but
their daughter, ;irsten ;chmitt, was the first to be born in
;;nd, not too long ago, our son-in-law bought her
engagement ring right here at Vanessa’s ;ine ;ewelry on
;akewood ;anch Main ;treet,; Charlene points out, with a
noted fondness in her voice.
;We have everything we could possibly need or want
here,; she says. ;side from all of the amenities that made
raising children so much more carefree and enjoyable—
fitness centers, pools, the ;MC;, the ;akewood ;anch
Hospital, the movie theatre, and town center—now, in
retirement, the ;chmitt’s are as active and involved as ever.
;mong Charlene’s favorite activities are polo matches.
;We love tailgating with friends ne;t to the polo fields. ;’ll
never get tired of the sound of clomping hooves and the
ground thundering,; Charlene says. ;We also happen to
have good friends who are referees, which is always fun.;
Don and ;aye Downing, also among the first 50 families at
;akewood ;anch, say that they, too, are in it for the long
;;ou really can’t find another place like this,; says Don.
;etirement has been good to them, and he says golf has
been the key for him. He works with the ;irst Tee program
in the ;arasota area, and plays at least twice a week.
;Golf days are definitely my favorite days,; he says.
;We are pretty lucky to have such beautiful courses right
here in our backyard.;
