THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.”
Real or Hoax?
NO MEETING DECEMBER 30. REGULAR MEETINGS RESUME FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 2012, WITH AN OFF-SITE MEETING AT THE RED LION.
The holiday meeting of the BBRC was called to order by President John.
Doug Cameron and Martin Clavijo carried out the tasks of invocating, saying the pledge, and recognizing our guests.
Our exchange student gave the club a primer on how Christmas is celebrated in her native land. Apparently, in Germany, the children enjoy St. Nicholas Day on December 6, when shoes are left on the front step. The shoes are filled by St. Nicholas with candy and toys.
The club was then serenaded by the talents of Kate Fischer (mom Wendi), who offered her rendition of Feliz Navidad. Little brother Carson told about his favorite part of Christmas — baking cookies with Grandma.
Sebastian Pedersen (father Kaj) told the club about his family’s traditions, which include Father Christmas, pudding with brandy, and a DVD featuring the Queen of England giving her annual holiday message.
Little Sebastian’s favorite food is apparently something referred to as “Bubble and Squeak,” which is comprised of leftovers from Christmas and is compiled and served on Boxing Day, December 26.
The family portion of the show was concluded by Lauren Ralph (dad Mike), who displayed her considerable talents singing holiday favorites.
President John called all of our talented Glendale staff out to receive their annual tokens of appreciation from the club for all they do and put up with throughout the year. We really do love and appreciate the staff who make Glendale a terrific place to be nearly every Friday morning.
Once again, Eric Ode led children (of all ages) in a sing along of Christmas and other favorites. As usual, Eric had the kids dancing and jumping, as they belted out tune after jolly tune.
The highlight of the day was a golfing Santa, who interrupted his round on the 10th tee to tend to our party and the kids, who were thrilled to sit on Santa’s lap and receive a little something for Christmas.

Another Annual Golfing with the Elves is now history, with 18 hearty golfers braving darkness and rain, as they made their way to Mt. Si on Christmas Eve day. As the day progressed, decreasing showers and clearing skies ensured a good time was had by all on the course. Later, in the club house, hot chocolate with enhancers warm the spirits of the hearty elves.
