All on site lunches, dinners and programs at the 14 west Hamilton Street Club have been cancelled until guidance from the Mayor and Governor ch
anges. The board and staff are monitoring this closely.
THE GOOD NEWS
Lunches are available for pickup and some delivery generally from Tuesday through Friday at the club thanks to Chef Charlotte and manager Jules Cantonwine. If you want a lunch, email Jules the day you would like and if you need delivery – we try to accommodate delivery when we can.
Lunches may be ordered ahead and picked up at the club between 11:30 and 12:30 from Tuesday through Friday. Check your club emails to see the menu for the next day. Ordering meals helps sustain the club’s financial health in these difficult times. We often have a few meals left so please order and enjoy and support the club
The speaker committee, chaired by Jack Gohn and supported by zoom expert Sam Hopkins, is offering lunch several times a week and on some evenings. Members can gather virtually on Zoom for lunch on some days with one conversation and on programs days, there is a guest speaker followed by time for questions and discussion. These are wonderful breaks in the day at home.
The members of the program committee are listed at the end of the sidebar if you want to share ideas about future lunch or dinner guests/speakers.
The Board has formed a new committee – The Club Usage Committee is now considering how we can make the Club more valuable for members by offering new activities and events, and how we can profitably utilize our clubhouse and staff by servicing non-members. The committee members of this new committee, chaired by Jack Rosholt, are listed on the side bar and all welcome suggestions.
