Mama, let your babies grow up to be OP Pickers

“Mama, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” or in the case of Ocala Palms, “Mama, Please Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be An OP Picker!” Every couple of weeks in the OP Clubhouse, residents and friends are entertained by as many as eight men bringing their talents for a free night of pickin’, grinnin’ and singin’!
