The Rock n Roll was provided by the multi-talented Russ Holihan (who knew ?) and his band, "Uncommon Ground".
Tennis and wine is what happens to 'sex' and 'drugs' in the later
years. It all came together on a starry, starry mid summer night to the delight
of BRC members and guests. More pictures

"A big thank you to all who turned out for last Friday’s Wine & Cheese; you could not have been more supportive of Bill and I and our upcoming move to South Carolina; it was BRC at its finest!
The food, wine, tennis and weather made for a great evening but our memories will always be of the camaraderie and well wishes we received from everyone who could and could not make it. We will always be grateful for the many friendships and good times we had as members of the club."
Flowers by Karin
A huge thank-you to Karin King-Rigby who took it upon
herself to set up and care for the flowers you see spread around the
club. Members are asked to pitch in and give them a drink when mother nature
needs a hand.
Thank you very much to those who took the time to fill out the membership survey. We had sixty-nine completed surveys. Your insightful and thoughtful comments were very informative.
The plan is to analyze your input and produce a report to be shared initially with the board of directors for discussion at the September board meeting, after which a summary will be distributed to all members.
