Endless Summer in Florida (2019)

Endless Summer 2019

Summer never ends in Florida. And what better way to celebrate than with the Sophisticats supplying a wide variety of music. The program was a winner with the crowd, who, after all, had come to the Yacht Club to dance and have a good time with friends. Altogether, it was a party full of surprises and the good-natured fun of being with Monterey’s finest movers and shakers, while the music measured up to everybody’s expectations.

Veteran’s Day Celebration at Monterey, 2019

MYACC Vet’s Day 2019

On the afternoon of November 10, 2019, Monterey residents and more than 30 veterans gathered at the Memorial Walkway and Garden adjacent to the flagpole to pay tribute to our nation and the veterans among them who had fought and served their country in war and peace. We honor those men and women who have served our country so nobly. In fulfilling their oath, even in the seemingly mundane tasks, our service members ensure the continuation of this great American experiment in self-government.

The crowd stood to pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, which was at half-mast in honor of Veterans Day. A wreath of red, white, and blue was mounted on a stand behind the speakers table, which contained a plaque “what is a veteran?” Veterans of the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Marine Corp., the Coast Guard/Merchant Marine and National Guard were invited to light a candle in honor that service. 

At the conclusion of the ceremony, as voices joined for "God Bless America," reflecting Monterey's pride, respect, and love of country - a brief and satisfying reflection of patriotism to be long remembered. May we all strive to be faithful in our everyday responsibilities as our veterans have been in theirs.

Progress on 4th Hole Pond

Monterey Halloween 2019

Monterey Halloween 2019

It was pretty “spooky” at the Monterey Yacht Club with a collection of wizards, witches, clowns, and a mad doctor creating quite an atmosphere.  All the costuming across the board were outstanding. How can you beat Cesar & Cleopatra, the Joker & Princess, and various clowns and flappers?

The annual standby, "Glad to Be an American!" was brought into play early in the evening, and the parade with the American flag created a heartfelt exhibit of the greatest generation's love of country. Of course, no real party would be complete without a solo by you-know-who, this time presenting "I'm not the Same." If you want fun and excitement, try this:  a contest among two couples wrapping their partners up like mummies - in toilet paper. And experience won again this year.
