Encore Club enjoys a multitude of social activities

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Encore Club is a social club serving the communities of Fallbrook, Bonsall, Rainbow and DeLuz. The club is growing as more and more people discover how much members value their friendships and activities.

As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to celebrate the holiday events and appreciate the blessings and joys of the Christmas season and the love and support that abound in Encore. The “Jingle all the Way” Holiday Luncheon was a great success and a fine example of the laid back feel of club events.

Encore group “Wanderers” traveled to Tombstone, Arizona in November with four couples attending the event, soaking up the history and “color” there. They report having had a wonderful time. The next stop in Wanderers’ plans is a cruise from Vancouver to Anchorage, Alaska aboard the Celebrity Millennium in August 2022, providing another opportunity for members to venture out together for new experiences.

Some regular monthly activities include lots of card games, dinner together, a book club, and special trips to local sites. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1620 S. Stage Coach Lane.

Sandi Barmasse and Mary Westphal share laughs and a good time at Encore Club vacation lunch.

Social time begins at 9:30 a.m. and the business meeting will follow at 10 a.m. At that time, anyone can sign up for the activities they enjoy, keep up to date with club news, and listen to interesting speakers.

The speaker at the next meeting on January 4 will be from the Gary Sinise Foundation, describing some of their wonderful work on behalf of seriously injured military heroes. They built 74 specially adapted homes across the country, many in Southern California.

Anyone interested for more information on membership can contact Ardis Duhachek, President of Memberships, at 612-309-0099 or go to http://www.fallbrookencoreclub.com.

Prospective new members are always welcome to attend one of the monthly meetings, get to know each other and find out more to determine if Encore is right for them.
