Veterans Day at Monterey

MYACC Veterans 2018

On the sunny afternoon of November 11, 2017, Monterey residents 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.

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 had been constructed for the occasion, and was mounted on a stand behind the speakers table.

Veterans of the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Marine Corp., and the Coast Guard/Merchant Marine were invited to step. As each group was identified, a candle was lit to honor that service. A brief and dynamic speech chastised those in recent news reports who had shown disrespect to the flag and to all that this country stands for.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, as voices joined for "God Bless America," the evident crowd demeanor reflected Monterey's pride, respect, and love of country - a brief and satisfying reflection of patriotism to be long remembered.

Halloween at Monterey 2018

MYACC Halloween 2018

It was a night for the goblins, witches, wizards and clowns. And that was even before the occupants of Table 1 arrived to “Who Let the Dogs Out” - six white dogs with black spots being held at bay by their masters leach. All in all, the costuming was just outstanding. How can you beat a guy dressed in drag, cowboys & cowgirls, and a biker couple.

"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 our generation's love of country. If you want fun and excitement, try this: a contest among two couples wrapping their partners up in toilet paper like mummies.

The evening went by much too quickly, and as the crowd left there was plenty of conversation about ideas for next year’s party.

Be A Monterey Star

Be A Monterey Star

Those who have even a slight bent toward performing behind a microphone all showed up for under the stars in the main parking lot. It was the final chance at stardom on this season's social calendar. There were many brave souls up got up to sing solo as well as several groups of singers. Everyone was free to pick their classic favorites, including Sweet Caroline, New York, New York and Proud to be an American. Maybe the popularity of the selections is just that they are great songs, both lively and familiar. Music for singing and dancing as well was provided by DJ’s Bryce & Shar of “Be a Star”, who also performed for the pleasure of the crowd. Let’s do it again!

MYCC Fun Day 2018

MYCC Fun Day 2018

Eight bikes and a motorcycle got Fun Day off to an early start along with twenty-one walkers proceeding up and down the side streets of Monterey for early morning exercise.  A coffee break at the Club House was a welcome diversion thereafter. Now that everyone was awake, the streets picked up traffic heading to designated apartments for the annual treat of touring three of Monterey’s most alluring households.

At noontime, the popular Mermaids took center stage in the pool, with twelve swimmers performing a perfectly choreographed and executed display of synchronized water dancing. With smiles on their faces and clever caps on their heads, the mermaids once again captivated the audience and received generous reactions of murmured praise and thunderous applause.

Early afternoon brought a medley of golfing contests, from driving to putting to attempts at “hole in one” and plenty of circulating golfers kept things moving. The “ball drop” attracted the usual big crowd on Hole #5.

Inside, the popularity of Bingo was on full display, as the room was jammed with players who ate it up and stayed throughout the lengthy session. When they arrived back outside in the sunshine, there was plenty of parking lot activity and competition, crowned by the Hermit Crabs, who carried the evening.

Altogether a successful, well-planned time, Fun Day earned its title for another year, as darkness finally called activity to a halt, and players wended their way home.
