Our Welcome Back Spaghetti Dinner with Sir Rod (Stewart) held at the Flanders received excellent reviews from those who attended. Despite the horrible weather, just about everyone who had bought a ticket showed up to enjoy the good food and music. We added approximately $600 to our treasury, but more importantly, a rollicking, good time was had by all…
- Nicolette again showed off her dance moves.
- Gerri and MaryLee exhibited their hula hoop skills.
- Peggy graciously and gracefully danced with Sir Rod.
- Sandy—wearing a sombrero—lead a conga line though the Flanders ballroom.
And that, my friends, was the tip of the iceberg!
Many photos of the evening were taken, and I am sure they will show up in various places. I hope more Colony Club members will participate in the fun and camaraderie next year. Thanks are extended to the Ways and Means committee headed by Bonnie Hyson and Sandy Crescenzo. Whether you attended the event or not, your feedback is respectfully requested. I ask each member to participate in an anonymous survey regarding the Welcome Back Spaghetti Dinner. See page 5 for further information.
October in all its colorful glory is upon us, and we have many activities planned. Cathy Solarski, Dot Johnson, Gerry Kearns, and Diane Root volunteered to help me man a table for the Block Party, and I thank them for their assistance. The Boscov’s Friends and Family event is October 18, and coupons are still available for you to buy or sell. On October 22, the Colony Club will take part in Clean Ocean Action Day and help—along with other groups—clean up a portion of the beach. Volunteers will be needed for this civic-minded activity. Welcome Night is October 26 and Elaine Novello, Susan Newkirk, Cathi Ferber, and Dot Aitken will help Jane Snyder spread the word about the Colony Club. Stop by the Colony Club table at the Civic Center.
Finally, the Halloween Parade is October 27, and CAPA members, along with other club members, will participate. We are still looking for volunteers to walk or distribute candy at the corners as we march by. The parade is a lot of fun and a real feel good experience. We will be wearing costumes donated by Mary Rodgers.
Join us for our October 17 meeting in Room 110 in the library at 7 PM. Al Crescenzo will be our speaker, and his topic is Grace Kelly.
