Upcoming GCA Events
October Event - "Oldies but Goodies Night" !
Mark your calendar for Friday October 13th, at 6:00pm and join us for an "Oldies but Goodies Night" and Appetizer Potluck at the Horton Community Center - As they say....... "Rock'n Roll is Here to Stay"!!
To take us down memory lane there will be your favorite tunes from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, complements of Mike Winckoski and Phi Stewart, and dancing, Hula Hoops and a “sock-hop” will be on the program.
The color scheme is hot pink and black and there will be prizes! Costumes are encouraged but not required!
For inspiration remember: "Rebel Without a Cause", "Gidget", "The Wild One", "Bye Bye Birdie", "Jail House Rock", "Some like It Hot", and "Tammy and the Bachelor" to name a few. And think James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sandra Dee, Marlon Brandon, Ann-Margaret, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Debbie Reynolds.
So, guys put on your dark jeans, black or white turtlenecks or t-shirts, leather jackets, and don’t forget to roll-up your sleeves and grease back your hair (What hair? You might say!). But tie dye shirts and peace medallions would also work.
And gals dig out your Poodle skirts, crinoline slips, capri pants and white shirts, cardigan sweaters, and of course, pearls. But bell-bottom pants, mini-skirts, and “go-go boots” would also work!
Appetizer Suggestions: In keeping with the theme, please bring a favorite “retro” substantial appetizer, such as, Mac and Cheese, Meatballs, Tuna Casserole, Sloppy Joes, Pigs in a Blanket, Chicken a la King, Three Bean and Ambrosia salads. And, of course, desserts!
Place & Time: The event will take place at the Horton Community Center. Socializing begins at 6:00pm, followed by a brief meeting. Appetizers start at 6:30pm followed by dancing and sock-hopping!
Set-Up: The layout for this OBG event will be different. So, all hands are welcome, starting at 10:00am on Friday, October 13 at the Horton Center. If you have any questions, please message Marlee Campbell.
November Event - GCA Chili Cook-Off!
On Friday November 10th at 6 PM a favorite event returns! The Annual Chili Cook-Off, and Veterans Day Celebration.
Rumor has it that the two sisters (as in Chili rivalry) will not be attending so… if winning the coveted Chef Hat and Certificate along with being the envy of your friends is on your Bucket list, then SIGN-UP NOW!
We still need 3 chefs to share their delicious recipes with the group. Chili chefs are reimbursed $25 to offset the cost of your secret ingredients. Please contact Vicki Wittenberger if you are interested in being a cook or helping that evening.
In addition to chili, side dishes are requested according to the first letter of your last name:
- A-K: Salads
- L-O: Cornbread
- P-Z: Dessert
We will also be holding our annual GCA Elections this month – if you are interested in participating on the Board and volunteering your time to GCA - PLEASE contact Edward Johnson and let him know how you’d like to help!
