Time always seems to pass by so quickly when you are having a wonderful time at the Club! To those members who are here only during the winter season, it probably feels like their sleep-away winter camp with so many activities to keep them busy. A few of our members have already left or are planning to travel shortly to their summer residences else-where. Most club activities will continue until they return, hopefully having had a healthy and wonderful summer. For those who are fortunately here all-year-round and able to enjoy all we have here, it’s a blessing to remain and continue activities during the summer months.
Another annual Scholarship Fund Concert was recently held at the Club with very special student musicians of the Lynn U. Conservatory of Music at-tended again by a capacity audience of about 400 music lovers. The evening performances were magniﬁcent indeed! All the performers were outstanding in their offerings, the ﬂutist who played a number of ﬁne pieces, the pianist as well as the obviously very talented and lovely violinist who also sang a number of beautiful opera pieces and brought the audience to its feet on a night to remember. It was the best evening of ﬁne music by the Lynn U. Conservatory of Music.
The Aberdeen on Stage production of the “The Best of Times” was presented last month at the Park Vista High School Auditorium to an excited audience of club members and guests. It featured a musical Broadway revue of growing up in the 60s, 70s and 80s. The audience of about 700, cheered the wonderful performances of the many performers, exceeding the expectations of last year’s production.
Recently the 2016 Men’s Golf Club Champion-ship Tournament matches and the Ladies’ Golf Club Championship matches were completed, including the Sadie Hawkins Scramble and both end-of season Ladies’ Golf Closing Day Tournament and the Men’s Golf Closing Day Tournament. Also the Par 3 Golf Tournament and the 9-Hole Golf and Wine Tournament were well attended. Tennis members held a successful Tennis Mixer and an Exhibition Barbecue at the Beach Entry Pool with the USPTA Pros competing for the Aberdeen Title, followed by the Tennis Club Championship Awards presentation. Our Tennis Director offered the opinion of scientists that tennis is one of the best sports to play in that participation in tennis, 3 hours a week, will cut the risk of death in half from any cause, that tennis players score higher in vigor, optimism and self-esteem and that tennis outperforms other sports in developing positive personality characteristics. Worth a try?
Following Easter events, a Showtime Concert featuring comedian and musician Jimmy Keys was presented with a high-energy variety show. Passover was celebrated with Seder Dinners. In May, the Club will have a Cinco de Mayo Poolside Party, Mother’s Day Brunch, a 92nd St. Y presentation, a Memorial Day Bridge Tournament and a Memorial Day Dinner Dance. Noteworthy is the Ladies’ Birthday Celebration planned in May to celebrate the March through May birthdays. The ladies of Aberdeen plan to celebrate birthdays every couple of months. They include an all-inclusive dinner with entertainment and, doubtlessly, a great deal of conversation and camaraderie.
