Christmas BLAST FROM THE PAST

This year is almost over and I can't say that I will be sad to see it go!

No cruise-ins, no parties, no get togethers, naughta 😞

Even our annual Christmas Party was a no go......however I hope you enjoy some of the pictures I have found from Christmas' past.


2005 - Christmas at Island Hall




2006 - Christmas at Island Hall


Santa used to give us great Christmas gifts!  We must have been on his "nice" list! πŸ˜‰




2007 - Christmas at Island Hall




Many thanks to all involved in the planning and hosting of our parties at the Scugog Island Hall.  A HUGE THANK YOU to Lorraine and Ed Smale for the awesome decorations each year!


Again, there seems to be a lapse in pictures but I remember many good times over the next 6 years.


Most memorable were the parties hosted by Paul and Brenda Robinson at their home.  We had some great laughs - women in the front room and men in the basement!  Just had to remember not to make eye-contact with your significant other or you had to go home!

Good times - eh Brenda?!?!?


2013 - Christmas at Crabby Joe's


Oops - no pictures this year.  Santa's elf is on strike!


2014 - Christmas at Shiva's

We must have been on Santa's naughty list this year! πŸ˜•


2015 - Christmas at Sunnybrae Golf Club






2016 - Christmas at Colonel Mustard's 








2017 - Christmas at Colonel Mustard's 





What's with these gifts?!?!?!?!



2018 - Christmas at Sunderland Legion





Did Santa know in advance we would need this during Covid 19! 😲


2019 - Christmas at Sunderland Legion





Thank you to Elves Tony and Josie for pictures this year 😊


They say a "picture is worth 1000 words" - if that is true, a lot has been said over the years in this blog.  I hope you have enjoyed my efforts to provide you with some insight to our club.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
.......Julie

Stay safe, maintain social distancing, wash your hands frequently and wear a mask! 😷

Fall Colours Cruise BLAST FROM THE PAST

Well, it's October 2020 and COVID is still limiting social gatherings 😞.  Next weekend is Thanksgiving πŸ¦ƒand before you know it, the snow will be falling ⛄ (something our "snowbird friends" haven't experienced in a while).

The fall colours are nearly at their peak in the north for anyone wishing to enjoy a solitary cruise.  While we cannot have our annual Fall Colours Cruise this year, below are pictures from prior trips we have enjoyed.

I hope you like them and apologize for the lack of information for the years I had to recreate - my memory sucks!  The memories are there but the details are not!  And as you will see, some years are a total miss πŸ˜”

2017






2019







As I look through these photos from prior years I realize it takes a lot of planning to organize this annual event.  Scheduled "P" breaks, restuarants, motels, activities.....etc.

A huge thank you to everyone who undertook this challenge - you all have done a great job!

I have enjoyed each and every year and have some great memories with great people (even if I don't remember all the details...πŸ˜•).


OMG - I JUST LOOKED AT THESE PICTURES BEFORE I PUBLISHED THEM - WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF FUN OVER THE YEARS! 😊😊😊😊😊

               KEEP DOING YOUR PART TO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19!!!!
Self-isolate. 
Maintain 6 foot distancing.   
Wash your hands frequently.
Wear a mask when social distancing is not possible.
