This past month of May has been a busy month for our club. We had three golf events and our bowling season has come to an end with our an-nual bowling banquet at the Riverway Restaurant on May 14th. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Charlie Jones and his Golf Committee and Jack Puleo and his Bowling Committee for putting together two wonderful programs for our club members. Both our Fall golf and our bowling season will be resuming in September following the Labor Day weekend. We have one Spring golf event left on Monday, June 3rd at Cranberry Valley Golf Course in Harwich. Hope-fully, all of you have been adjusting to the changes the Executive Committee has made by uti-lizing our website www.retiredmensclub.com to communicate with all of our members. You will be able to view this monthly newsletter and also all of the information necessary to partici-pate in our golf program.
Our May meeting was well attended. Back by popular demand, we had the amazing duo of Julie Charland and Tim Dickey also known as “Toast and Jam” to entertain us. Brian O’Toole has acquired the services of a local author from Mashpee, Deane B. Turner, who has traveled exten-sively all over the world and finally settled down on the Cape in 2000 as the speaker for our June meeting. He will be sharing with us the lessons he has learned leading a nomadic life. Sounds interesting.
Ernie Oliveira and Dan Penni have been working on a number of local Cape Cod related events for us for the remainder of the year. To begin with they have scheduled a Cape Cod Cruise with live music out of Sesuit Harbor on the Lobster Roll at the end of July. In August, there will be a Sunset Cruise on the Cape Cod Canal beginning in Onset. They also have a number of other lo-cal social functions (some old, some new) planned for the Fall through the end of the year which we will be discussing at a later date.
The quotation for the month of June comes from Bernard Mannes Baruch (1870-1965). He was an American financier, stock investor, philanthropist, statesman, and political consultant. After his success in business, he devoted his time toward advising U.S. Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt on economic matters, and became a philanthropist. “During my eighty-seven years I have witnessed a whole succession of technological revolutions. But none of them has done away with the need for character in the individual or the ability to think.”
Our next meeting is Thursday, June 13th at 1:30 p.m. at the Dennis Senior Center.
I look forward to seeing you there.
