Fun Night at Monterey, 2020

Fun Day 2020 MYACC

It has been several years since Monterey had a Fun Night event. Well, this year Pat Cleary decided to give it another run and organized a great group of volunteer acts to equal previous shows. MC’s Pat Cleary and Jack Parker opened the ceremony with some “memories” and proceeded to introduce the acts, starting with a dance number from the Rhinestone Cowgirls, followed by a very funny Raggedy Ann and Andy. Rita O’Connell played a medley of tunes, followed by a humorous hobo Marilyn Paul.

Then a Second Hand Rose tune which was interrupted by our own ”hot dog lady” (one of her several appearances). Jack Parker showed his vocal acumen with several songs, followed by a tap dance duo of Phyllis Snyder and Sandy Williams.

Kathryn Bolce (dressed in drag) as a golfer told a variety of golf jokes, including new rules for seniors. Then it was time for the grand entrance of the “Supremes” with a medley of famous hit songs, followed by a Moi Moi Clairvoyant (Pat Marshall) and to wrap things up an appearance by Tony with his button accordion, and the infamous Giuseppe (Mecozzi) and Rosa (Haviland) from Naples, Italy

It was an extravagant show that produced new “memories” that will be remembered for years to come.

Mardis Gras at Monterey 2020!

Mardis Gras 2020 at MYACC

Another Mardi Gras party is always everybody's idea of a great time, and just leave it to the Ludmerer’s to pull it off and keep things musically moving by bringing in Doug Deming and The Jewel Tones band (with a new sax player) to get everyone up and dancing! And dancing was the rule of the evening. There were plenty of costumes with hats, masks and beads.

By the end everybody was exhausted! At the same time next year, they'll all be back for more of the fun.

Second Time Around Sale 2020

Who knows when the tradition started? It’s an annual event that has become a part of Monterey culture that provides excitement, camaraderie, mystery, discovery, and a little income to support Monterey activities. The first Saturday of February is a day you can count on.

First comes weeks of collection. Everybody can contribute! It’s the stuff you no longer use or need that can strike somebody else’s fancy. It all piles up and becomes merchandise! Appliances, furniture, kitchenware, clothing, lamps, books and games, and, of course, the “White Elephant” table.

Despite the rain there was a great turn out, from residents and neighbors. Then it’s all over for another year, while Monterey is and the residents are enriched in ways that cannot be calculated and will not be soon forgotten.
