I hope all of you had a very Happy New Year. As I write this, we are getting much needed rain, but it does mean that we are unable to enjoy many outdoor activities at this time of the year. For those of you looking for some activities to enjoy indoors, we have many options on offer.

Many of you are aware that CWC has been organizing a Valentine’s Party at the Colony Club on Feb. 16th. As of this writing, we were informed that the venue for the party, the Colony Club Meeting Room, sustained damage during the Jan. storms. As a result, the Homeowners Association has cancelled all events planned at the club due to safety concerns. They advise that they do not know when the room will be available for our event. Therefore, we reluctantly, must cancel our planned Valentine’s Party in Feb. If you have already purchased tickets, you will be refunded. Please keep your dancing shoes handy and stay tuned for a possible “Spring Fling” in April or May!

We are once again offering bridge classes for advanced beginners and intermediate players. The classes will be offered at the Ted Adcock Center on Wed. mornings. This will be in addition to our regularly scheduled ‘Chicago’ bridge games also on Wed. mornings. Our duplicate bridge group will continue to play Fri. afternoons also at the Ted Adcock Center. Thank you to Maria Grigorieff and Norma DesMarais for their work in organizing these classes. You might also be interested in “Tech Talks” on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the new Half Moon Bay Library. This is being coordinated by Bonnie McGuiness, and the first weeks have been very successful with Library specialists offering computer basics at 10 am and again at 6 pm.

Mark your calendars for our March General Meeting which will also be a St. Patrick’s Day party at the home of Virginia Perry on Fri. March 15th. This is a change from our usual Thurs. evening gathering. The slate of officers for 2019/20 will be presented at this meeting/party.

We are looking for volunteers to help fill key positions on the new board. If you have background or skills in technology, particularly as a web master, or in accounting, we would welcome your help! Please contact me or Bonnie McGuiness for more information.

Judy Kocher, President CWC
