Palm Sunday Family Brunch & Egg Hunt

Saturday evening, members and friends were treated to a fun filled Comedy Show, featuring Ryan Reiss who had many interesting observations about people in the crowd, including our Club Counsel’s bowl of wine, Kenney Josephs, and the headliner, Eric Lyden, who entertained the audience with terrific stories about his twenty years of working in comedy, his underachievement in community college, his short and not very successful employment in the Sear’s hardware department and his views on marriage, children and payback. It was great fun for all who attended.

We wrapped up the weekend on Palm Sunday with our Annual Palm Sunday/Easter Brunch. Another sold out crowed shared a meal, good company, and a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Sunday, April 8th is the April Fool’s Regatta. 1 PM start.

Due to snow last Wednesday a private party originally schedule for last week has been moved to this week, hence Chef Charlie is bumped again. See you in April Chef.

Join us tonight as we begin our Darts Tournament in the Regatta Room.

Please remember that the Club will be closed Easter Sunday, Happy Easter!!

Adult Trivia Season Finally

Commodore’s Corner

It’s been cold, no doubt about it, but we’re almost half way there. Spring springs in another forty-nine days and we just may make it.
So what’s there to do ‘til then? In addition to all of the winter activities – from frostbite sailing to Tea parties, Trivia to shooting trap – I would add one more suggestion. Join a committee.
General Manager Charlie Walsh does an extraordinary job of keeping our club shipshape, and the staff is uniformly excellent. But there is still a mountain of business that gets done every month by volunteers. We need people who are willing to commit to sharing ideas, writing invitations, fundraising for the ALIR, making telephone calls, bringing in new members, and a host of other duties that all need to get done. These volunteers are the true heart of this Club and we could not operate without them.

Volunteering is the easiest way to make the club your own in a very special way. You will meet new friends and find new strengths in old friends. There’s plenty of scientific evidence for the idea that social interaction is as, or more, important for a long and happy life than either diet or exercise — just the kind of thing that you get from working with a group of committed like-minded volunteers. So call the office, get the names of the committee heads, and get involved. Live forever! Why not?
