Maine trip for 50+ Club

 

Beautiful weather was granted to over 50 travelers recently from the 50+ Club of Christ the King Parish of Mashpee, on a 2 day fall trip to the Ogunquit area of Maine. Attendees were rewarded with superb picture perfect views of the rocky coastline as they lunched and walked the ever popular Marginal Way. After checking into their oceanfront accommodations, they were off to a delicious dinner at the Clay Hill Farm Restaurant, known for its location in the midst of a nature preserve.

Following dinner, the group attended the musical presentation “The Buddy Holly Story” at the Ogunquit playhouse, with rave reviews by all in attendance. On the 2nd day following breakfast, a tour was made of other local attractions including Nubble Lighthouse and shopping at the York Village shops. For lunch, members were rewarded by a delightful multi-course lobster lunch at Foster’s Downeast Clambake which included entertainment that was enjoyed by all at.

Before departing for the Cape, Stonewall Kitchens was visited for purchases of additional mementos from a great trip to the Pine Tree State of Maine.

July 10, 2013 ~ Day Trip to Salem, Gloucester And Rockport

An early departure from CTK parking lot and a pleasant and comfortable ride to Salem with great weather to boot.

The first stop was the “Peabody, Essex Museum” with its fabulous display of the “Faberge Eggs” and over 230 singular treasures created by the House of Faberge in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for Tsar Nicholas II, and the Romanov Family.

After that, -- a scenic trip to Gloucester and a delicious luncheon at the “Gloucester House Restaurant” where everybody enjoyed the wide variety of seafood dishes offered. All were well fed and hilariously entertained by their very witty and capable hostess.

Then we boarded the bus for our last stop—a wonderful walk through Rockport in an attempt to walk off the fabulous food we had just eaten. Rockport was as beautiful as ever with all its quaint shops and scenic vistas including the ever popular “Motif Number 1”.

The final leg of the trip was the return to Mashpee with all the wonderful thoughts of another great bus trip.

50 + Club’s Lobster Luncheon

Christ the King's 50+ Club Enjoys another Successful Lobster Luncheon

Another great crowd for the annual 50 +Club’s Lobster Luncheon. Music was provided by “The X Isles” headed by John Sippell and his steel band. The music was a wonderful collection of songs from Trinidad and the islands. He also took the time to explain all about the steel drums and how they were made and his lifelong interest in them and the music he played.  A very interesting time with great music too.

The lobster rolls were again provided by the Eat Your Heart Out caterers of Falmouth with their usual overflowing, and very delicious helpings of lobster filled rolls. This was another great afternoon filled with wonderful music from the islands, and marvelous lobster rolls from our nearby waters.

May Trip to NYC

Nothing can match the thrill of a Broadway musical, and Jersey Boys is no exception.  The show was the highlight of the 50+ Club May trip to NYC.   After the show we rushed back to the hotel just in time for happy hour.  Wine provided by Silver Fox Tours kept the group pretty festive through dinner. 

The next morning our bus took us to the dock for a cruise by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  On a beautiful spring morning the views of Miss Liberty and the nearly finished Freedom Tower were spectacular. 

After our cruise we bussed off to the Ground Zero Memorial.  Though not yet complete, the memorial was very moving.  
Tired adventurers returned home with wonderful stories to tell.  Just ask us.

Christmas at the Coonamessett

The 50+ Club of Christ the King Parish held its annual Christmas Lunch in early December at the famed Coonmessett Inn in Falmouth with 110 members attending. All enjoyed the seasonal decorations of the Inn, as well as the delicious fare of the Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Chicken Marsala main entrees, with dessert of ice cream eggnog pie. Entertainment was by Peter Kostopoulos at the keyboard, in which he also played saxophone lead. Some Club members also got into their entertainment mode and acted “The Ed Sullivan Show”, much to the delight and laughter of the attendees. All and all, it was a nice way to kick-off the holidays for everyone.
