Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The Commodore’s Ball in late winter, the Commodore’s Reception and Blessing of the Fleet in May, Founders’ Day in November, a gala Holiday Party in early December, and the now-signature New Year’s Day Pot Luck Extravaganza are some of our fun events for members. Of course, we have the best seats for the annual performances of the Navy’s Blue Angels during USNA Commissioning Week, and the July Fourth fireworks display.
EYC also has plenty of family-oriented events, including monthly Family Movie Nights, Junior Sailing events and cookouts, and many children’s events such as the spring Easter Egg Hunt, summer Ice Cream Social, and the Gingerbread House Building Party in December.Want to get in on the ground floor for the fun? Join House Committee! Meetings are held first Wednesdays of the month, 6 p.m. Or contact Co-Chairs Carey Kirk and Mark Jones. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
EYC Easter Events
Sunday, April 5, brings two traditional EYC Easter favorites: a special brunch buffet featuring the tried and true favorites and a few unique specials from Chef Henry. Reservations are recommended but not required; the sumptuous repast, including a number of kid-friendly offerings, is available for $20.95 per person ($8.95 for children). Our other Sunday traditions, the Bloody Mary bar and mimosa/screwdriver specials, also will be available, as usual.
At 1 p.m. our littlest members take center stage for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. The youngest hunters go first, so being late can result in disappointment. Ages 1-4 will begin promptly at 1 p.m.; 5 and up at 1:15. Our friend the Easter Bunny will be on hand from 11:30 a.m. for photo ops with the kids.
Please make reservations online, and don't forget to bring a dozen pre-filled plastic eggs per child to the club by Friday, April 3, for hiding along with the other treats. Reserve online today.
Stone Soup Festival March 28
Don't miss the Second Annual EYC Stone Soup Celebration on Saturday, March 28, 4 to 6 p.m.
The book Stone Soup by Marcia Brown was originally published in 1947 and was introduced on the Captain Kangaroo Children’s Show in the 1950s.
You have probably heard the story; there are different versions over the years. A hungry traveler comes across a poor town in the dead of winter. He knocks on doors begging for food, but the poor residents all refuse him. In the center of town he builds a fire, pulls out a pot and fills it with snow, sets it over the fire to melt, and throws in a stone.
Curious villagers come by to see what he’s doing. He tells them he’s making stone soup, and that it would taste better, if only it had some onions. A villager agrees to give him onions if he shares the soup.Read more...
