The Toy Drive for the Camp Pendleton Marine kiddos is on NOW. Kickoff on Nov. 5 was well-received. Please bring an unwrapped NEW toy, sporting equipment (for the older boys and girls), bicycles or cash to BCYC. The club office will accept your donation of cash or charge to your BCYC account. We will be glad to do your shopping for you! What a great deal, right? You have through Dec. 10 to contribute and help brighten the life of a Marine family at Camp Pendleton. Thank you for your wonderful generosity. 

Our wine tasting event was really great. The wines were from Orange Coast Winery, thereby supporting a local merchant. The cheese plates and food were amazing – thank you, Chef Georges Rapicault. We wanted to encourage our ladies to bring their spouses, friends and families to our events. We are not always “ladies who lunch.” Many stayed and had dinner at the club. What a relaxing evening. 

Please join us for our Holiday luncheon on Dec. 10, which will most likely be held outside. With both live and silent auction items, this is a great chance to get your holiday gifts. There will be fabulous food, entertainment, and a guest speaker as well. I hope to see you there. You will not want to miss this one. 

Thank you for all your support this crazy year. The events we were able to have were wonderfully attended. Look for our new trophy, donated by Staff Commodore Ted and Connie O’Connor, for our BCYC doggies. It is now in the trophy case to be awarded at our Dog Show every year.

Have a merry holiday season, and may 2021 be sunny and bright. 

Las Commodoras, Barbara Eden
