Happy New Year! This year I celebrated the new year on the East Coast, specifically Virginia Beach. It was 72 degrees and sunny, and I had the opportunity to spoil my grandson, which made the new year even better.
I am saddened to report that long-time member Fred Barker passed away over the holidays. There will be a Celebration of Life for Fred on February 2 at 1:00 pm at the club. Our hearts go out to the family.
The first—and perhaps only—free meal of the year is almost upon us. On Saturday, January 26 at 6:00 pm (note the time change!), the annual EYC Board of Trustees Chili Feed happens. Yes, everyone is invited, and yes the Board is preparing, serving, and cleaning up. Bring your appetite and your favorite beverage. Everything else will be provided. The Board does request your participation in voting for the best chili of the night, a highly coveted award by the Board members, which gives the winner bragging rights for the rest of the year.
