2020 GCA Crab Feed -- A Good Time Had by All!

The recent 2020 GCA Crab Feed (February 13th, 14th, 15th) was again a sold-out success.  Guests enjoyed a wonderful social hour followed by All-You-Could-Eat Crab, Cole Slaw, Baked Potato and Garlic Bread.  The evening wrapped up with raffle drawings for some wonderful theme baskets!

Please visit the 2020 Crab Feed Page (click the button below) for an update of the event and a recognition of our wonderful event sponsors.  We have even included a few photos from the event! 

Thank you to all of the GCA Members and Guests who made this such a great event!


Upcoming March 14th Potluck – The Irish Are Coming Hurrah, Hurray!

Horton Community Center - Friday March 14, 2020

The Irish theme potluck takes place on Friday, March 14 at the Horton Community Center. Social time starts at 6:00 PM with greetings and announcements at 6:30pm followed by dinner.

Bring your favorite Irish or non-Irish dish to share along with serving utensils, and since more people are attending GCA events, please bring enough to serve 20. Also, please label your dish, especially for common allergens of wheat, nuts, soy and dairy and bring a beverage of your choice.

And, in keeping with our new environment-friendly policy of “Pack-It-In-Pack-It Out”, remember to bring your own dishes, flatware and drinking glasses. GCA will provide coffee, tea, water and ice.

Don't forget to wear some green for the Irish! The setup for this potluck starts at 10:00AM the morning of the event at the Horton Community Center.

NEW VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOME!  Please contact Judy Carter with any questions by phone at 360-801-0617 or by e-mail to: GCA Event Coordinator


The GCA is always looking for new volunteers to support all the wonderful activities and resources of the GCA.  Volunteers are always welcome from support positions to committee chairs.  Below are a couple of great volunteer opportunities!

GCA Theme Dinners:  The good news is that we have chairs or co-chairs for all the events in 2020 except for two themed dinners: the May Fiesta Night to be held on May 8th; and Oktoberfest to be held on Oct. 9th.

This would be a great opportunity for one or two couples or two friends to join together to co-chair each of these events.  Linda Fish, our talented GCA Events Coordinator, has prepared excellent ‘How To’ booklets to guide you through all aspects of the process, including the names of other members who have helped out with these events in the past.  So, you are definitely not starting from scratch: there are plenty of hands to help out. But there is also room to add your own innovations.  For questions or to volunteer, please contact Linda at (360) 277-3520 or via email at: Linda Fish.

New GCA Newsletter Editor:  2020 will be the last year of our current editor's three year term as the GCA newsletter editor.  This is another great opportunity to get to know other GCA members and learn first-hand, about the inner-workings of the Board.  Please contact Margaret (Marlee) Campbell for more information about the tasks and duties of the position.  Marlee is more than willing to support and tutor the next editor on the ‘ins and outs' of the position.  Marlee can be reached by email at Marlee or by phone at 703-850-8424. THANK YOU!
