It’s spectacular! Summer Bocce is now in full bloom and we play whenever we get a break from the weather. We’ve had a full range of HOT, cold, and moderate temperatures, blue skies and bright sunshine for playing by the lake. We don’t play in inclement weather (we usually go inside to play pool instead), but otherwise we’re there every Wednesday at 9 a.m., all year round. We’ve been pleased to welcome some new and some returning players.
For some competitive fun, spirited conversation and fabulous views of Lake Massapoag (all for free), come and join us. No equipment or previous bocce experience is needed. We have two courts directly facing the Community Center, and it’s worth a look. For questions, contact Ken Siegal at email@example.com.
Candlepin bowling is here to stay. A group of members is hitting the lanes in Norwood center every Thursday morning. If you’re interested, contact Ira Abramson at upcoming meetings or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesdays at the Adult Center. To register, contact Steve Lechter by
email at email@example.com.
The Group plays mostly at the Chemawa Golf Course in N. Attleboro, and alternatively at the Easton Country Club. The former in particular, is a beautifully kept and maintained course with pleasant facilities and suits the style of play of our members. Weekly organized games are ongoing through the summer and normally
averages about 10 to 12 players. Games are usually arranged for Wednesday, or alternatively on Monday, depending on weather conditions or the availability of tee-times.
New members are welcomed. Anyone wanting to join the Group should contact Michael Yawitch by email or phone.
Regular, in person, monthly meetings of the Group are scheduled for the last Tuesday of the month. Meetings take place downstairs at the Community Center, after the regular Club meeting.
The buy-in price of our Investment Group portfolio on July 19 was $6,900 reflecting a reduction consistent with recent market declines. It may, however, represent a buying opportunity for prospective new members. The monthly contribution by members is $50. From time to time, if the price becomes excessively high, distributions are made to members. The last such distribution, amounting to $4,590, was made in February 2020. Voting for officers of the group took place at the June 28 meeting. Voting of the membership was both in person and by Zoom. The officers are: President - Neil Nager; Vice President - Al Bruno; Treasurer/Secretary - Michael Yawitch; Asst Treasurer - Ralph Jacobs. The current membership of the Group numbers 25. New members are welcomed and no expertise in investing is needed. Non-members are welcome to join our meeting as observers. For details, contact Neil Nager (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mike Yawitch (email@example.com)
We play immediately after weekly Club meetings in the poolroom at the lower level of the Adult Center. For further information contact Carl Frank (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Brisk winter walks are available for free-- every Friday morning, depending on weather conditions. You can join the group for one of our upcoming strolls. Get out of the house for a friendly, socially distanced walk. It’s good for your head as well as your health. We meet year round (every Friday morning) weather permitting, at a prearranged outdoor location for a 3-5 mile walk. Lots of camaraderie. Contact Andy Klassman at email@example.com, if you are interested. You’ll be glad you did.
Please join us every Wednesday at 1 p.m. downstairs in the Adult Center. The Whist club has been averaging about 20 people a week – come and join the fun. We have some ladies playing with us also. If you don’t know or don’t remember how to play whist, we can teach you. The whist group wants to send out a special thanks to Selma Engel who has been setting up the tables and creating lotteries for us to choose our partner, Please sign up with Ed Rubin by Tuesday so that we have your name and number for contact information. For more information, contact Ed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LIKE TO BIKE? The biking group has already done two rides, and more are being planned. Last week's ride went along the Blackstone Valley Rail Trail, about 20 miles over three hours with a lunch stop. For details on joining this group on their next bike ride, contact Lew Victor or Neil Rosen. We are not MAMILS (middle-age men in Lycra). We are just a group of guys out for a bike ride. Depending on the trip, we try to ride 18–20 miles over @ three hours on side roads and bike trails. Neil Rosen (email@example.com) and Lew Victor (firstname.lastname@example.org) have been coordinating the trips. Several other members of the club have joined us and expressed interest in riding. We welcome e-bikers as well.
