January went by like a breeze. You kept us very busy with all of the events throughout the month. Chef Tony and his staff have really enhanced the culinary operation over the past year. I can’t tell you how many positive comments I receive on a DAILY basis about the food quality, variety and presentation.
On January 7th, we set a new record attendance for the Wednesday Night Buffet. We had Prime Rib Night that evening and 394 members joined us for dinner. To put it in perspective, we normally serve 225-270 people on Wednesday nights... We now know Prime Rib is a big hit!
If you haven’t made plans for Valentine’s Day, come join us at the Club. We still have tables available for the Valentine’s Day Dinner Dance in the main dining room. There is a waiting list for Valentine’s Day Patio Dining, and if the weather cooperates with us, we will be able to accommodate everyone who is on the wait list. We will “make the call” the day before Valentine’s Day. Next year this won’t be an issue as we will have plenty of seating with the expansion of the lower level.
For those of you who like horse racing or the casino, we have a trip scheduled to The Casino at Gulfstream on Wednesday, February 4th. The $84 fee includes transportation, clubhouse seating, race program, lunch with a glass of wine and a $2 betting voucher. Sign up now before the bus fills up! On February 17th, Barry & Nancy will be here once again for Name That Tune. This is always a fun night along with a little competition.
The Jubilee was a huge success! While the original plan was to be outside for cocktail hour, the cold weather did not stop us. You all appeared to be having a great time inside even though the place was packed from wall to wall. Jean Anstine and Corky Hogan did a fabulous job decorating the room, and Steve Schimpf, Director of Facilities Maintenance, complemented their decorations with props. The room looked great and the food was fantastic. Congratulations to JL Cares for another successful event.
