IN MEMORIAM Gordon Ainsworth, LM Westerly, RI Irene E. Gapit Thorp, LA Westerly, RI Wow! Where did the summer go? It seems like we were just preparing to open the pool and get ready for Memorial Day, and just like that, it’s just some beautiful memories. The functions have been great and the attendance has been fabulous. Speaking of the pool, it is officially closed for the season. We kept it open as long as we possibly could. A big thank you to Joe Trombino for keeping a very close eye on the pool all summer long. I heard a lot of positive compliments about it. Also thanks to Glenn and Kristin Foberg and their swimming pool committee for all of their efforts and time—it really was a beautiful summer. On September 27th we held the Commodore’s Ball and what a ball it was. Our co-chairs, Tony & Cheryl Spino with their committee put together a fantastic evening. Thank you. The dinner was absolutely delicious and the entertainment provided by the “Dead Blues Society” kept the majority on the dance floor until the very end. A great night and some very fond memories. On October 4th Linda Logan chaired the “Beverly Hills White Party”. What a great theme with everyone dressed in white. Great job! Our dinner, catered by Mike “Lippy” Lipowski, was delicious and Stella Tunes kept everyone dancing until night’s end. Thank you very much, it was a great evening. For those members who have not had the opportunity to join us at any of our events, I urge you to try and stop by. We have a very energetic group of individuals that have been providing us with some fabulous entertainment. You owe it to yourselves to come down and enjoy YOUR club. If you have friends that aren’t members, please invite them to join you at your club. All you have to do is sign them into our guest book located on the podium in the lounge, and then enjoy! BY the time you are reading this article, we will have enjoyed another new event for this year, the “70’s Night Dance Party” co-chaired by Tony and Denise Pellegrino. I’ll fill you in on the details in next month’s edition. Remember Sunday, November 16th, which is Election Sunday. The polls open at 12 noon. We have several great candidates so please come to the club and vote for your choice.
