British Club Potluck Social

Twink Gates-Zimdar, Publicity

It was a stormy evening on Saturday, Feb. 22, when 22 members and three guests of the British Club weathered the storm and met at the home of David and Pauline Taylor for a potluck BYOB social evening. The three guests were happy to be away from the cold weather in their hometowns. Pauline’s sister, Joyce, was visiting from Canada. Chris, brother of Susan Biestek, and his friend, Judy, were visiting from Montana.

Members contributed a fine array of delicious food for the buffet. They dined on a selection of cheeses; shrimp with cocktail sauce; three bean dip; ham, beef, and turkey sandwiches; deviled eggs; turkey tortilla pinwheels; Mexican lasagna; Swedish meatballs; potato salad; veggies; banana split pudding; sticky toffee pudding; brownies; and a selection of cookies. A very good evening was had by all, as usual, in spite of the stormy weather outside.

Everyone thanked David and Pauline for opening up their home and hosting this wonderful evening. Special thanks also to Margaret Nodot who helped Pauline with the organization for the 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 1-4 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
