On Sunday, May 25 twenty-nine members of the British Club gathered at the Bocce Ball Courts here in SaddleBrooke for a fun Bocce Ball game. Following the game, everyone headed to the home of Bob Zimdar and Twink Gates for a potluck picnic where they feasted on lasagna, Swedish meatballs, cheeseburger macaroni, shrimp with cocktail sauce, seven layer dip, green salad, and chopped salad.
With coffee, a delicious array of desserts were served – trifle, coconut macaroons, English chocolates and cream puffs.
At the end of the evening the Bocce Ball winners, losers and all in attendance were awarded small parcels of fine hazelnut chocolates for their endeavors to make this event so successful!
Everyone agreed it was a fun way to spend an afternoon and evening and thanked Twink and Bob for organizing this fun event for the British Club.
