A heartfelt thanks to our BCYC members who made the Las Commodores Backpack Drive such a huge success. We delivered more than 200 backpacks to our Marine children in Camp Pendleton. Thanks to Bobbi Silvey and Sally Sopkin for chairing this event.

While we are on the subject of giving, our 2018 Las Commodoras Board of Directors, led by President Leslie Kazarian, has made a gift of $3,000 to the Special Forces Home for Christmas Fund spearheaded by Dick Stone. Kudos to Las Commodoras!

The “Chopped” luncheon was great fun and all contestants were extremely creative in designing their menus. Exotic and delicious dishes were enjoyed by all who attended. Thanks to Barbara Eden for chairing this event and to our contestant chefs: Tammy Boivin, Leslie Caplan and Ally Foster; and sous chefs: Staff Commodore Marshall Caplan, Ally Foster and Rear Commodore Rhonda Tolar. All were very enthusiastic and willing chefs.

Las Commodoras, Carol Wallace
