The mission of the Mizner Falls Book Group is to provide residents with an opportunity to engage in lively, facilitated discussion about a recommended book that members have read. Each month the group selects a book for the upcoming meeting – generally a novel that has received favorable literary reviews or been highly recommended. The goal is to address a variety of themes, cultures and historical periods over the course of the year.
A winter club that provides an informal, friendly and supportive environment for photographers of all levels of experience. Whether you use a Smart phone or a DSLR camera, the club encourages creativity, vision and techniques to raise your photography to a higher level. We share ideas and knowledge with each other and help promote interest in photography throughout the community. Photographs will be exhibited in the Messenger and on the website. The club meets twice a month in the Ballroom. Field trips and photo-walks will be scheduled throughout the season.
In the past, Club Italia has brought a little Italian flair into Mizner Falls.

All are welcome; you don't have to be Italian to come to our events and join in the fun.

We meet once a month from November thru May on Wednesdays. Our programs are always fun and interesting. Who can forget our Two Chefs from Aprons, cooking & entertaining us, our high tea and our wonderful Fashion Show Luncheon with professional models representing the beautiful boutiques in the area?

And let’s not forget our day trip to Gulf Stream Casino with gambling, shopping and, of course, lunch. We have Bingo nights with prizes. For our final function, we teamed up with the Men’s Club to present a Mother’s Day, Father’s Day celebration held at the beautiful Indian Spring Country

Games & Sports
How many times have you sat in the house on a beautiful Florida day and you have felt like something was missing? I have the solution for you, Bocce Ball! When you play this game, you are experiencing a game that has been played for centuries. It is very stress relieving, but at the same time, challenging enough to keep you entertained for hours on end. Bocce ball is a simple game. It’s my hope that we can get our whole community involved. You should have no problem pulling yourself away from your TV or other indoor activities for an hour or two.
Bocce is an ancient game similar to lawn bowling. It is played on a court, which in our case, measures 11' wide by 17' long. The game can be played by as few as 2 and as many as 8 players, divided into 2 teams. The equipment consists of a small golf-sized ball called the Pallina and 8 grapefruit-sized ball, 4 of one color and 4 or another. We choose teams each day by random draw. The team member selected to go first throws the Pallina a fair distance, between a white marker and the far end of the court. They follow that up with their team-colored all, with the object of getting their ball closest to the Pallina as possible. A member of the opposing team will then through their color ball, trying to get it closer to the Pallina than their opposing team member's ball. This continues until all the balls are thrown. The ball or balls (of the same color) closest to the Pallina scores a point or points. The score is then registered on a score board adjacent to the court. We choose to use 11 points as the winning count. Bocce in Italian means Kiss. That is what you want to do to the Pallina, just kiss the ball with yours but not knock it away.
