“Cookout By the Pool II” wrapped up our lineup of “SRC Summer Casual” social events for the summer, when Murray and Maggie Forth hosted Rotarians, spouses, and kids at their East Greenbush home on Thursday evening.
We’re now on hiatus until we resume our weekly Thursday dinner meetings at Quigley’s on September 6. Meanwhile, a hearty round of applause for all who helped host or coordinate summer events this year, from cookouts to picnics to group dinners to a pro baseball game to theater in the round — Jim Leyhane, Roberto Martinez, Terry Brewer, Ray and Lois Hannan, Debbie Rodriguez, Pat Bailey, Debbie Brown, Dean and Doris Calamaras, and, of course, the Forths.
At Thursday’s event, President Andy Leyhane announced the official start of ticket sales for a special raffle that will provide the winner with a dinner for 12 (!) prepared by chef-owner Jim Rua and his staff at the iconic Cafe Capriccio in Albany, in the private upstairs Chef’s Table room on October 20. Tickets are just $20 each, and all SRC members are asked to sell at least several. They are available from Andy, Jim Leyhane, or Roberto Martinez. The drawing will made at our Thursday, October 4, meeting. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit SRC’s various youth programs.
Here are a few more scenes from the final summer get-together:
