Help! I Don't Receive the Weekly Newsblast!

Do you get the weekly Newsblast email on Wednesday mornings? Did you subscribe but your service has either never begun or has stopped? The most likely cause is that our messages to you are being caught in your spam filter, sometimes even farther up the line than the folder you may be able to find on your own.

Most of the time, the cure is simple. In tech-talk, it's called "whitelisting" -- the opposite of blacklisting. In simple terms, it means adding our address to your "safe" list of senders, from whom you want to receive mail. You can allow emails from specific addresses to reach your inbox without being placed in your junk or spam folder by whitelisting those email addresses and adding them to a safe senders list.

Each program has different steps for adding an email address to a safe senders list. Please click on the link for the software you have and follow the instructions. The address most likely to land in your Spam system is the one used for the Newsblast: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. (You may also want to enter other addresses including This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., if they are not already in your address book.) If, however, you have the option to enter a "domain" please enter @eastportyc.org. Find specific instructions for your email service below:

Still stuck? Contact EYC Communications and we'll do our best to help you out!

Please note: If you have inadvertently (or otherwise) unsubscribed from EYC emails, none of this will work until you resubscribe. Because of anti-spam rules, no one can do this for you, you must do it yourself. Just use the "Subscribe" link at the bottom of any EYC website page and then reply to the automated confirmation email you'll receive as a result.

Around the House: December 2017

Theresa Somes

Our Chesapeake Seafood Bake was a huge success and everyone enjoyed a big bucket containing a lobster along with clams, mussels and shrimp prepared by Chef Henry along with sides of corn on the cob, potatoes, salad and brownies. This was a sold-out event and if you missed it look for it next year when we will do it again.

There is more fun to be enjoyed in December so eat your Wheaties and get ready for the fun to begin.

On Saturday, December 2, we will enjoy our holiday decorations along with the now infamous ‘Get Your Elf On!’ party. The fun begins at 6 p.m. Wear your elf hat or wear a name tag with your elf name printed on it and get a drink ticket.

Our drink specials will be Santa’s Little Helper and Rudolph’s Red Nose. You need to come in and find out what they are and we will discover if it’s true that Elves can hold their shot drinks, or maybe not…

Chief Chef Elf Henry will have some fantastic holiday specials along with small plate specials for us to enjoy that evening. Check the flyers around the clubhouse or the website on how to find your elf name. Wear your most prized Hideous Holiday Sweater.

Wear your jammies and elf hat and come recover with the rest of the elves the next day at 11 a.m. at the Elves Hangover Brunch.

Saturday, December 16, brings our annual, highly anticipated make-a-Gingerbread House event for kids and their parents. This is a fun event and sells out quickly every time. Reservations are required, and space is limited. Watch for the flyers and website to make your reservation. Walk-ins cannot be accommodated, sorry.

The next day, the 17th, will be a fun Celebration of Christmas with our 6th Annual EYC Cookie Exchange starting at 4 p.m. Once again it will be a friendly, but tasty competition. Check the flyers around the clubhouse and the website for more details about this yummy event.

Then it’s time to think about the turning of the year. Celebrate the arrival of 2018 and Save the Date: Sunday, December 31. Our New Year’s Eve Dinner runs from 6 until 10 p.m. with specials for the kids, and some very festive specials for the adults, plus a limited regular menu for both. A great party with an evening full of music, dancing, food and beverage, and a champagne toast at midnight.

Have a look around the clubhouse and website for the details, but plan on welcoming the New Year at your favorite club with the very best view in town of the fireworks. Reservations are strongly recommended.

As with every holiday season we’ll keep to our commitment of remembering the less fortunate in our community. We will take donations for the Lighthouse Shelter and the local SPCA shelter. We will have 2 donation boxes in the foyer as usual and will remain there for the duration of the holidays. Please check the bulletin board for the items that are needed to help them.

We value your comments and suggestions so please fill out a comment card when you receive it with your bill. You can also find them on the table by the hostess stand.

Reminder: The House Committee meets every month on the first Wednesday at 6:30 in the conference room. All are welcome to attend a meeting and see if you would like to join us on a regular basis.

Upcoming Event for January:

  • January 19th – Wine and Tapas Tasting

Watch the Newsblast and Bulletin Board for more great events brought to you by House Committee.

Holiday Fun at EYC

EYCTreeWinter is here but the fun goes on indoors at EYC in December, starting with Decorating the Clubhouse and a festive 'Get Your Elf On' Party that evening, followed by the Lights Parade, Cookie Exchange, Children's Gingerbread House Party, New Year's Eve Celebration and on into 2018 with the annual New Year's Day Football & Pot Luck Extravaganza!

Our Dining Room service schedule will have a few interruptions, but remember that when the dining room's closed, the bar and deck remain open. Don't forget that brunch will be available at the club on Sundays, December 24 and 31.

Many EYC holiday events are casual, drop-in affairs, but some require reservations. These always go quickly, so DON'T WAIT. Whatever events you choose, don't forget to bring a contribution to put in one of the large decorated boxes in the lobby. We're collecting again this year for the Light House Shelter and SPCA's Presents for Paws.
