British Club fond farewell

British Club

British Club

Twink Gates-Zimdar

It was indeed a bittersweet time again for the British Club, losing two of its loyal Members, Doreen and Jim Daniels. Doreen was an invaluable asset to the club, serving on the board and as our members’ roster tech. For a number of years, she and Jim almost always joined in our events throughout the year, including setting up the venues on occasions and also having members’ fun Pub Nights at their home. We are so sorry to see them leaving us, but wish them all the very best in their new life in Reno where they will be closer to their children and their families.

On that wonderful monsoon evening, we had a great send-off Friday, August 11, when 14 members joined Doreen and Jim for a delicious dinner in the Vistas dining room here in SaddleBrooke.

Thank you for everything you have done for the British Club. We are going to really miss you.

Every second and fourth Friday of the month, the British Club has a social event in the bar area at SaddleBrooke Clubhouse which includes the following activities: Canasta, Mexican Train and maybe Bridge from 1:00 p.m. until around 4:00 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
