Like the robins of spring, the golfers are starting to show up at MCC. The initial report from Golf Course Superintendent , Matt Hamilton, is that there is very little snow damage after a tough,cold winter. Matt does a great job of getting our course ready for winter and it always shows this time of year.
Monday: We are featuring Beef & Noodles,w/ Mashed Potatoes and a roll for $8.50.
Wednesday: Wing night with fries $10.00
Friday: We now offer Shrimp as a choice besides Cod or Catfish with fries for $9.00.
Our meals have been very well received and we are generating revenue that other clubs would love to have.
Thank you to Mackenzie Talbert and Christine Grier for making these meals possible. Thanks also to our members who continue to support these activities.
Last week, I missed something that should have been in the email. On March 7, we had our first breakfast chaired by Todd & Sheryl Freeborn, Colin & Kiegan Watts, Dave Lehman, and Larry Bergeson.
We normally average about 60 plates and we started out this season with 91. The weather was nice and the committee was solid but it is our hope that the combination our our new sign, increased facebook posting, and the weekly emails that brought more attention to it. Thanks to the committee for a great job. The next breakfast is April 18th.
Also, I missed Janet VanErsvelde’s name on the list of women who cleaned the clubhouse. She joined Marna Supple, Lorna Christensen, Reggie Todd and Diana England and the clubhouse looks great, Thank you Ladies.
We signed up for the GIVE program in which war veterans register with GIVE and become members. They can go to several golf courses and now we will one of them. They will call to make a tee time and present their membership cards at registration. We re offering them golf and cart for $15. This is a good way to give back to our military personnel and expand our presence around this part of the state.
The biggest announcement of this week is we ordered a new Point of Sales (POS) cash register that will make that function a lot easier for our staff and especially our volunteers. It is ironic because I have heard people refer to our current system as a POS but the first word wasn’t Point. A big thank you to Jim & Marilyn Wykoff for making this possible without the club investing anything. It is really appreciated.
If you have been in the clubhouse lately, you will notice some new bar stools that are very comfortable. Thank you to Harry & Karen Meek for donating them.
Don’t miss Montezuma High School’s Aloha Variety Show, March 27. Our students have way more talent than just sports and it is great to see this show back after Covid cancelled last years.
It is the best entertainment value around. You can pick up tickets at Peoples Savings Bank, Montezuma State Bank, or the School Office.
Have a good week.
