News & Events

Silverthorn Country Club

As many of you have seen on the news, the restaurant at Silverthorn Country Club recently had an employee test positive for Hepatitis-A. The employee was a part-time dishwasher that did not handle food and has not been employed since before Easter. He was not present at the Easter Brunch nor was he at the Springstead prom.

Once he was diagnosed as testing positive, the health department immediately informed Silverthorn Country Club and all the surfaces in the kitchen and the food were tested. The Hernando County Health Department has announced that Silverthorne Country Club was cleared. All employees tested back negative for the virus and the entire restaurant has been deep cleaned and sanitized. To ensure safety, all current employees were vaccinated.

We do apologize for any inconvenience or stress this news may have caused and appreciate everyone’s support while we work through this. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Silverthorns’ Manager, Wayne Connelly, at 352-797-6383.

Thank you for your continuous support,

Our 5th Annual "Celebrity" Men Bake is coming up! On May 17th at Silverthorn Country Club, local celebrities such as Doug Chorvat, Hernando County’s Clerk of Court & Comptroller will be there to support our community and help us raise funds to build more homes for low-income families! Join us for a night of laughter, entertainment, and cake!

It's always a great feeling to break ground on another house. Thank to Publix sponsoring the entire build,, this is just the beginning of fulfilling a dream of owning their own home, along with their seven children. Click here to see some of the photos and the Facebook Live feed of the event and follow the progress of their build under our News & Events/Special Events heading.

It's always great when someone "gets" our mission and what Habitat truly means to the families we serve. It's even better when that person takes the time to put pen to paper, or takes to Social Media. Laura Gable, a local artist, is one such person. Find out what she has to say about Habitat for Humanity of Hernando County.

The 3rd Annual Raise the Roof Men Bake event was a huge success raising over $37,000 toward affordable homes for low-income families. A big thank you to all or sponsors and supporters and all who joined us on the night. Click here to see some of the photos taken at the event.
