Men’s Club – November Update

The Men’s Club held its two regular meetings during October. Master Chefs, Jerry Koppang and Charlie Clark, and their Kitchen Kommandos provided bountiful, tasty breakfasts…hardly any leftovers.

At the October 7 meeting, the President introduced five new members. Jack Christiansen announced that the Men’s Club Oktoberfest was a roaring success, and we are already looking ahead to the second annual party in 2015.

The members heard from four speakers who were seeking public office…Robert Ming, Bill Brough, Alan Wickstrom and Harold Kaufman.

The Sunshine Committee, to everyone’s relief, had no bad news to report.

The meeting held on October 21 featured guest speaker Lisa Bartlett, Mayor of Dana Point, and candidate for Member, OC Board of Supervisors. Among the topics she presented were the “plastic bag ban” which was recently passed by the State Legislature. However, because the City of Dana Point had already passed a more flexible ordinance, the City’s law will prevail. Also, the Mayor presented current information about the La Plata extension, the redevelopment plans for Town Center, Doheny Village and Dana Point Harbor.

Members were reminded that because the ClubHouse will serve as polling place for the upcoming election on November 4, there will not be a Men’s Club meeting on that date. The next scheduled meeting will be held on November 18.

All male residents of the Shores are invited to join the Men’s Club, which meets at 8:00 a.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month (with a couple of exceptions.) Come join us as our guest and join in some fellowship. In addition to holding several entertaining events each year, the Men’s Club is proud to support a scholarship program for graduating senior students at Dana Hills High… and of course, the production of the memorable, world-famous Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast…give us a try!
