Frequently Asked Questions
Palencia Ladies Group

  1. WHAT IS Palencia Ladies Day Out?
    PLDO is a community social group comprised up of ladies who enjoy exploring different points of interest in the St. Augustine/Jacksonville area.  This group provides a variety of activities to its members and is a way to make friends, especially for someone new to Palencia.  It's a "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" Group!
  2. How do I join PLDO?
    Contact Kathy Schutzman with your email address and phone number to have your name added to the roster.  Use the resident directory for contact info.
  3. How does PLDO select monthly outing destinations?
    Volunteers, AKA monthly coordinators, either working alone or with a partner, select an interesting activity and nearby restaurant for lunch.  Past activities have included visits to historic places, shopping trips, current exhibits, presentations, hands-on activities, tours, etc.  Because the group is so diverse, everyone brings her own interests to selecting activities, and we all make new discoveries, learning about places to go and things to do in the St. Augustine/Jacksonville area.  Many are experiences we might not have had but for PLDO.  If you would like to volunteer or have an idea for an outing, please contact Kathy Schutzman.
  4. If I volunteer to be a monthly coordinator what are my responsibilities?
    Coordinator responsibilities:
    a) Select an activity and find out the location, hours, costs, etc.  Check for group or senior rates.  Then provide Kathy with this information, she will who write the monthly postings for the activities.
    b) Select a restaurant near the event or activity and make an initial reservation.  Confirm the reservation with a final count a couple of days before the outing.
    c) Keep a list of participants and volunteers to drive by monitoring the website RSVP list.
    d) Handle questions and last minute details, as needed.

    When you RSVP, there is a place to indicate whether you will attend the activity, lunch, or both.  There is also a place to indicate if you are willing to drive a carpool.
