Models and Marines
What an honor it is for me to serve this year as the Las Commodoras President. After having served alongside several of our past and present board members, I am taking my turn to sit at the “head of the table.” While I am still trying to figure out how to best provide innovative new events to enhance the ladies’ experiences here at BCYC, I know that the veteran members of the board who are remaining (or returning) – Joyce Barnes, Nancy Bryant, Marjorie Davis, Barbara Eden, Peggy Granbery, Bobbi Silvey, Catherine Miller, Sally Sopkin, Carol Wallace – will keep us pointed in the right direction. Our new board members – Julie Bitetto, Lori Curtin, Allison Foster, Jodi Geoffroy, Rita Harvey – will give us new energy. Thanks to all of you for trusting me to lead the group during the Diamond Jubilee year at BCYC.
Ladies, and gentlemen too, mark your calendars for the upcoming events of the Jubilee Year. Las Commodoras exists to enhance the memberships’ experience here and this year’s Las Commodoras board has enthusiastically embraced the theme of fun and friendship. Check The Masthead each month to see what the ladies have planned. You just may find yourself modeling on our catwalk, challenging your dog to an obstacle course, being voted off “Chopped” (Sept. Cooking Luncheon) or haggling for a prize at an auction.
And since you have your calendars open, save the date, Feb. 22, for our annual Fashion Show. We will invite the U.S. Marine ladies to attend in honor of their service and sacrifice. We hope to show our sincere appreciation by making the day memorable for them. Your participation as a table hostess or as a model is a sure way to help Las Commodoras. If you cannot attend the luncheon, but would like to sponsor a Marine lady to attend, please do so by calling the club office. If you would like to join in the fun, contact Julie Bitetto or me.
Happy New Year to all! Happy 60th Birthday BCYC! Here’s to a fabulous 2018!
