Thank you to all who attended the Kids Day and Beach Party!  Jennifer Curtis made the Kids Fun Day a blast for young and old alike!  She knows how to bring the kid out in all of us.  A special thanks to Tammy Ray for bringing out her petting zoo!

Per usual, Nick and Jackie know how to put on a great party!!  Their crew worked tirelessly setting up and cleaning up so give them a big shout when you see them as well (the Goff, Newgent, Weir, Orndorff, Hollingsworth, and the Newgent teams). It is not too late to purchase a Beach Party t-shirt!  Contact Nick Mates for details.   Check out our facebook page for pictures of all the fun.

Our Mother’s Day event was a great success! Thank you, Amy and Les Miller, for hosting and Susan Tennant for volunteering to help! And, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank our grill master, Tony Rice, for always serving up a good batch of eggs! It was great to see everyone again. We served approximately 75 people and the pavilion was alive with chatter and laughter. I do hope our club mothers enjoyed the beautiful day.

We will be kicking off Memorial Day weekend by celebrating on SATURDAY EVENING, May 28th. This will be a pitch-in like the good ole days!

I will begin putting together our 2022 schedule of events in December.  If you have any suggestions or would like to see something new and different on the schedule, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Social September 2021

The 2021 season is quickly coming to a close.  The Lobster Fest was a great success!  We served 125 Lobsters and 35 steaks. Thank you to Kenneth and Karen Orndorff for hosting and Erich Rose for his steak grilling skills!  Bruce and Ethel Brenner and Steve Earnhart for your boiling skills!  I continue to receive positive feedback about bringing your own side dishes for your own group.

Our next event is the Hornback Chili Cookoff held on Saturday, October 16th.  This event is hosted by Jennifer Curtis and her crew.  She always does a great job offering a family-friendly event with fall activities for the kiddos.  For those of you who are new to the club, bring your best pot of chili and fixings.  Everyone will have a chance to taste and vote on the best pot and then enjoy a full bowl….or two.  Start time is roughly 5:00pm following the regatta.  Keep an eye out on Facebook and your email for additional details.  Save the date for November 6th for the Final Bash!  More details to come.
