Twenty-five members of the British Club enjoyed a friendship breakfast at the Bistro at HOA 2 on November 5 commemorating Guy Fawkes Day. Guy Fawkes became synonymous with the Gunpowder Plot, which was an attempt to blow up King James and Parliament in 1605, the failure of which has been commemorated every year in Britain since November 5, 1605. His effigy is traditionally burned on a bonfire, commonly accompanied by a firework display. The British will remember this well-known verse which begins:
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot!
Thank you Eileen Sedgwick for organizing this very successful, fun event.
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 until around 4:00 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
