Mother’s 2020

Mother’s Day Dance

By Carlos Bonet

Saturday May 30, 2020 marked our return to The Spanish American Club, Inc’s return of our monthly activities. It was a day of anxiety and joy. The participation was only 31 members and guests. But the camaraderie, music and food were excellent. Masks were available for those that did not have one and so was an ample supply of hand sanitizer. The dance area was made as ample as possible to minimize too close a contact between dancers. This event was definitely not what we are used to in our club, but it was enjoyed by all. The Elk’s staff provided the safe environment, an excellent meal and the cooperation from our participants was also excellent. 

It is very understandable why most of you did not wish to participate. But, I am also aware that many of you are participating in other activities that place you in the same compromising situations. When you go to supermarkets, home goods stores and even in open air or indoor restaurants, where no one wears a mask or gloves. Regardless, this pandemic is something that should not be taken lightly and I urge all of you to make your own personal decisions that will keep you and your families safe.

Our next event will be the Father’s day Dance, which is scheduled for June 27, 2020. The men in our club will have their shot at a free meal. All other members will be $20 and guests $25.  More information will be sent out soon. If we get a substantial amount of participant we will hire DJ Jose Ramirez, if not I will again be the DJ so as to save $250. This will help keep the cost of the event to a minimum. Thank you and above all, “STAY SAFE”. Carlos A. Bonet

Door Prize Winners: (May 2020) Evelyn Carrillo, Alfredo Medina and Fedelino Casallas. (June 2020) Nancy Rozon, Felix Asencio and Virginia Feliciano

May’s Birthdays: Ruben Aleman, Isa Bryson, Awilda Maldonado, Alvaro Manzanres, Ligia Bernas Payne, Blanca Paez, Jose Rodriguez and Eliecer Torres.

Cena/ Baile de las Madres

El sábado 30 de mayo de 2020 marcó nuestro regreso a  The Spanish American Club, Inc. de nuestras actividades mensuales. Fue un día de ansiedad y alegría. La participación fue de sólo 31 miembros e invitados. Pero la camaradería, la música y la comida eran excelentes. Las máscaras estaban disponibles para aquellos que no tenían uno y por lo tanto era una amplia oferta de desinfectante de manos. El área de baile se hizo lo más amplia posible para minimizar demasiado cerca un contacto entre los bailarines. Este evento definitivamente no fue lo que estamos acostumbrados en nuestro club, pero fue disfrutado por todos. El personal del Elk proporcionó el ambiente seguro, una excelente comida y la cooperación de nuestros participantes también fue excelente.

Es muy comprensible por qué la mayoría de ustedes no desearon participar. Pero también soy consciente de que muchos de ustedes están participando en otras actividades que los colocan en las mismas situaciones comprometedoras. Cuando vas a supermercados, tiendas de artículos para el hogar e incluso en restaurantes al aire libre o en el interior, donde nadie usa máscara o guantes. A pesar de todo, esta pandemia es algo que no debe tomarse a la ligera y los insto a todos a tomar sus propias decisiones personales que los mantengan a usted y a sus familias a salvo.

Nuestro próximo evento será el Baile del Día del Padre, que está programado para el 27 de junio de 2020. Los hombres de nuestro club tendrán su oportunidad de una comida gratis. Todos los demás miembros serán $20 y los invitados $25. Más información será enviada pronto. Si obtenemos una cantidad sustancial de participante contrataremos a DJ José Ramírez, si no volveré a ser el DJ para ahorrar $250. Esto ayudará a mantener el costo del evento al mínimo.  Gracias y sobre todo, “MANTÉNGASE SEGURO”.
