Holiday Greetings to all the UBSCCers! I’m writing this before Christmas but you all won’t be read-ing it until after St. Nick has visited and the recycle bin is brimming full of spent wrapping paper and ribbon. Our neighborhood court here in Folsom goes way over the top at Christmas – I’m sure we’re causing that hydroelectric dam to have to pump out many extra kilowatts to light up our neighborhood during these weeks. We will surely have at least a hundred visitors on our court this Christmas eve, standing around the bonfire and enjoying some holiday cheer.
The club hosted a wonderful holiday bash at Rudy’s in early December. The food and service was great, the raffle was “rigged”, and your UBSCC executive branch leader was re-elected without op-position. My suggestion that it would be fairer to go to an electoral college voting system next year did not get any traction.
Mike and Janine Rapoza are graciously hosting our after-Christmas party (because one party is never enough) on January 7th in Roseville. We will also have a club meeting prior to the party. I am looking forward to seeing you all and hoping for the opportunity to steal your most coveted gifts during the gift exchange.
Thanks for a great 2016. We had lots of fun driving our LBCs, socializing with each other, and en-joying some good meals (of course). As I read the national news, I am constantly reminded how lucky we are that we have plenty to eat, nice roofs over our heads, and that our families and friends are safe. Have a fantastic holiday season and let’s make some more memories in 2017!
