(above) Another great
BRC season is celebrated at the annual Year End Social. Organizers Sunny Howard, Karin King-Rigby, Barbara Drab ( Social Committee Chairperson) and Andrea Mehling are pictured above. Bartender Scott Murray was not available for this photo
- too many people lined up at the bar. The servers on both ends are
Diane Pogue and Cookie Langdan and the caterer (in background near the grill)
is John Skokie.
Inset - a humbled Stu Abramson displays the Volunteer of the Year Award presented to him
at the event. The outdoor season is winding down, but not over
just yet. Join us for 'Bagels and Balls' on Saturday mornings and
for Pickleball with the Lopezes on Fridays at 6:30 and on Sundays at
1:00 with the Stickels.
Ed Leffingwell died at home on Friday Sept. 24. after a long
heroic battle with cancer. He was 87 years old. Ed was a long-time
member of the club and continued to be a member this year, although his
declining health prevented him from active participation. He was
greatly admired for his iron will in the face of adversity which
included 2 airplane crashes and
enduring 6 different types of cancer for more than a 30 year period. Ed was a true
Renaissance man. He was an excellent athlete in several sports; a successful business man in both big business and the stock market; a noted artist,
a builder and cook. For the last few years, several of his BRC buddies
joined him for weekly breakfasts at a local restaurant where the
conversations ranged across a wide variety of subjects. Ed was an avid
reader, well versed in many subjects and never bashful about sharing his
views. By all accounts his was a life well lived. A private memorial service
is being planned by the family.
Our deepest condolences to his wife Linda. Click
