New Year's Day Brunch - 2021
Date: Friday, January 1, 2021
Place: Belle Terrace Room
Belleair Country Club, Belleair, FL
The weather was warm and breezy on the terrace as The Island Estates Yacht Club welcomed in the New Year together at the Belleair Country Club as 33 members were in attendance. The day began with Mimosa Cocktails followed by an amazing buffet as it offered many salad selections and entrees that are New Year’s Day traditions from all around the USA and Canada. There was French Canadian Meat Pie, Hop N Jon Soup from New Orleans, Polish Sausage and Sauerkraut from Pennsylvania, Salmon, Chicken and Jim’s favorite St Louis style barbequed ribs and several other items as well. The dessert table did not disappoint either with several selections capped off by Bread Pudding with White Whiskey Sauce.
Due to the fact that we only had three events this year, the club paid for the brunch and there was no cost to members. Everyone was so upbeat as it had been several months since we had seen each other at a club event.
Commodore Gene Traupman presented Special Service Thank You Awards to Marcia Coxhead for her many years of being Club Secretary and to Patricia Ostrosky for her 25 years as our Treasurer.
In keeping with the times the Social Directors Angie Traupman, Sue Moncrieff, and Mary Reinhardt gave each member a Patriotic Face Mask and bottle of Hand Sanitizer.
It certainly was a fun event and a delicious feast.
We are off to a great start and are hopeful for a fun filled year at IEYC,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Patricia & Jim Ostrosky
