Free Birthday Dinners &
with DJ Patrick!!
Come and join us to cheer the Patriots on to victory over the Jets
as they continue their march to Super Bowl Championship #6
When: Sunday October 22nd at 8:30 PM
I have been a member of SOECC since 2005, and like many of us over the years, I had lost sight of all the good times I had: the good food, the fun music, the special events and the camaraderie of such great friends I have made over the years. Becoming President has brought back focus to just how special the membership in the Sons really is. I suggest each of us, especially those of us who have been members for a long time, take a step back and, instead of focusing on what is not right, think about all the great times we have had and all the good times yet to come.
As I reflect on my three months as President, I would like to take a brief moment and send my appreciation out to everybody.
There are other things we all can do to make the Club even better. Most of us do these anyways, but a reminder is always a good thing especially when you get old like me (!). As a member, when you come to the Club, have your key card out and show it to the greeter. To help keep costs low, the Club does not employ bus boys, so please:
John Flaherty, Club President

600 years older than the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, and 1,000 years more ancient than Stonehenge.
