Annual Holiday Party

Bocce Banner
  • Linda and Don McPherson

A friendly and enthusiastic crowd enjoyed our annual Holiday Party on December 8 at the East Rec. Center. Following appetizers and a catered Italian buffet the surprise entertainment for the evening – the Wine Country Tenors – wowed over 60 Bocce Club members and friends with their hour-long, audience-interactive performance of Italian classics, arias and Christmas carols. Their lively audience sing-alongs and serenading brought down the house.

The Wine Country Tenors gave a boffo performance at the Bocce Club Holiday Party.

President Sherry Magers introduced the new Board for 2019: Jean Reed (President); Barbara Lowell (Vice President); Bev Schilpp (Secretary and “Sunshine Lady”); Eric Neilsen (Treasurer); Ellie & Bob Baciocco, Barbara James, and Elaine Foote (Social Committee); Linda & Don McPherson (Publicity); Barbara Newton (Historian and Badge Coordinator); Tony D’Agosta (Court Maintenance Overseer). Members expressed their appreciation to the 2018 Board for its hard work including especially the outgoing officers: President Sherry Magers; Vice President Jean Reed; Treasurer Carol Huseby; Social Committee members Pat and Donn Paulson; and Court Maintenance Overseer Jim Huseby.


The Wine Country Tenors serenade Dee Johnson during their Bocce Holiday Party entertainment.

Special thanks go out to Social Committee members Pat and Donn Paulson and Ellie and Bob Baciocco for a most enjoyable closing event.
