British Club hosts upcoming events

Twink Gates-Zimdar, Publicity

Fourteen members of the British Club met at The Ranch Grill in SaddleBrooke Ranch for an evening of dining and chatting. We were pleased to introduce a potential new member and his wife. Martin is from Chester and married to Margaret who was born in Chicago.

A few of us had a tour of the new activity building, the new ballroom and the restaurant before settling into the private dining room. It was so inviting with the gas fire flickering. Martin was instructed to guess where people were from by listening to the different accents! Yes, you can often tell where in Britain a person is from by listening to their speech.

The dinner was excellent! The cioppino pasta was the most popular dish and then the chocolate cake dessert was so big everyone at the table had a spoonful!

It was a delightful evening!

Everyone thanked Shelia Bray for organizing this fun 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 1:00 p.m. until around 4:00 p.m. This is followed by a social hour and a bar meal.
