Spooky Halloween at Monterey

MYACC Halloween 2014

The Halloween costumes at Monterey consisted of scary and not so scary outfits, including a kilt wearing Scot, eggs & bacon, a surgeon, a flower pot, a flapper and her gangster man, plus a variety of spooky devils and goblins. Prizes for best costumes were awarded. First place went to Sam Mondello in drag, peace nik Rob Bennie was second, and third place went to Indian/squaw Marilyn and Bob Schnidt. 

DJ Bach had everyone up on the dance floor with a wide variety of musical selections and everyone sang Happy Birthday for Mary Rasmussen and Marion Mecozzi. 
The crowd attending this party was a pleasing mixture of newcomers and longtime Monterey residents. As the first social activity on the schedule this beginning promises a delightful and  lively turnout in the season ahead.

Snowbird Update - Summer 2014

For residents left behind from the summer exodus, things this year are anything but dull at Monterey. In addition to the routine maintenance on the golf course and grounds, painting of the buildings is underway. Interspersing the three selected colors, crews began the painting project with buildings numbered 3 through 8 and are progressing quite rapidly across the complex, bringing about a dramatic change in the looks of the place that has had a remarkable effect.

Along with the painting, installation of new washers and dryers by a different crew is going on, starting with the first floor laundry rooms. To operate these new washing machines and dryers, tokens will be used in place of coins. Two tokens are required for the washer and one for the dryer, though the overall cost of completing a load is the same as before. The tokens, at fifty cents apiece, are available for purchase from a machine in the Main Clubhouse.  Just insert a bill (a one-dollar bill, five, ten, or twenty) into a slot and tokens worth that amount  are dumped into a cup.  

Year-round residents are getting a head start, but if you are a Snowbird, all this is excitement is waiting for you when you get back!

Here it is - The new Canopy

It took a little while but it is finally here thanks to efforts of too many people to mention here, but a special thanks has to go to the DeNeill's and Flederbach's who raised most of the funds through advertising in our Monterey Directory, the great Duck Race, as well as contributions from the House Committee and Social Activities.
Please take advantage and enjoy your picnics by the grill under the shade of our new Canopy.

Spring Karaoke at Monterey, April 2014

Now that partygoers at Monterey have experienced the heady thrill of karaoke at least once a year, those who have even a slight bent toward performing behind a microphone all showed up for the final pop at stardom on this season's social calendar.

With no song sheets to go by, groups at the tables were free to choose far and wide. Why, then, were Sweet Caroline and New York, New York two of the earlier selections? These are two pieces that never miss and are decidedly on their way to becoming Karaoke standards here. Maybe their popularity is just that they are great songs, both lively and familiar. Another song that some lucky group always ends up choosing is the very forceful and amusing Tequila. This one in particular is just as much fun for the audience as it is for the performers.

There was no stopping that charming group that was so big they occupied both of the last two tables. They joyously swarmed into the spotlight time and time again, never running out of song titles to present. Now a Karaoke feature were two very appealing duets that we love to hear. May I Have This Dance for the Rest of My Life? and You Don't Know Me were delivered, as always, with pizzazz and sincerity to the enjoyment of all.

Finally, after some line dancing features and a bit of dessert, groups began to depart, and with a little imagination, you could hear a familiar voice declare, "That's all, Folks!
