Eagle Harbor Yacht Club Celebrates Mardi Gras -- Saturday, January 28, 2017

Allan, Commodore of the Eagle Harbor Yacht Club, welcomes the members to the Annual Meeting, which has the theme of Mardi Gras.  This touches Herb and me close to home, as we are originally from Louisiana, where the holiday is much celebrated in New Orleans.

Tonight is a night of laughter.  It is delightful to see the interaction between the members who have known each other for some time.  A lot of wit is exchanged, and Herb and I look forward to future get togethers with the group and getting to know them better.

Besides Allan and Yvonne, the club members attending that we already know are Janeane and Lyman and it is wonderful to see them again.  Who is missing?  David and Maureen.

Among the new friends we meet are Diane and Riley.   Diane brings us news of her neighbors, June and Herb, with whom we have boated in the Ranger Tug cruises.

And, of course, Tobi.  We find lots to laugh about.

The menu is traditional New Orleans, but 'red beans and rice' on Saturday?  That is a Monday dish in the Big Easy; however, this is Bainbridge and we must compliment the caterers!  Delicious food!

Oh, did I mention that the meeting is held at St. Barnabas Episcopal Parish Hall?
