Welcome to the website of Michigan State University’s alumni club for The Villages,Florida area. Founded in 2007 and chartered in February of 2008, The Villages Area MSU Alumni Club, today numbers over 250 members and is still growing. The club is for alumni and fans. While dedicated to promoting and supporting the mission of Michigan State University, the Club actively provides many opportunities for fellow Spartan fans to enjoy social, athletic, cultural and charitable events together.
Our Activities Calendar provides for monthly social activities, football and basketball game watches, tailgate parties, social and dance nights on The Villages’ Squares, group attendance at area entertainment events, golf outings and support of worthy local organizations.
MSU, we love thy shadows
When twilight silence falls,
Flushing deep and softly paling
O’er ivy covered halls;
Beneath the pines we’ll gather
To give our faith so true,
Sing our love for Alma Mater
And thy praises, MSU.

To the Members of The Villages Spartans
I wrote to you in early September updating you on the status of club activities. In that letter, we solicited donations for the Education Grant Program for Wildwood Middle High School teachers. We have had very few donations. Several board members report that the message did not effectively reach the membership and was lost in the middle of a letter covering several topics. Therefore, we are sending a second appeal.
The funds for our grant program have two primary sources—the 50/50 tickets at our meetings and, predominately, the auction at our April picnic. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we have not had any meetings since early last year and, of course, had to cancel the picnic. Our Education Committee account is only sufficient to support a very limited grant program unless donations are made.
If you would like to donate to this fund, you can mail your check to our treasurer, Linda Chard, at 1424 Privateer Way, The Villages, FL 32162. We sincerely thank you for your consideration.
Stay safe and we all look forward to resuming club activities as soon as we can.
Please note that any donations are certainly appreciated and will be 100% used for this program, but as we are not a 501 (3)(c) organizations, donations are not tax deductible.
