Welcome Back Inn Mates!

Posted September 10, 2013

It was GREAT to open our Inn last night a full 24 hours before anyone else on the street and have the opportunity to share conversation with you all!

I hope you are getting settled in, enjoyed tonight’s dinner as well and are excited about the coming year. We will keep the yummy treats like those Cotton Candy Grapes coming at you, along with the last of the sensational New Jersey tomatoes, corn, squash and fall produce. Please take full advantage of our interactive request sight, we love your suggestions and do our best to have them turned around asap.

Be sure to say Hi and get to know our staff, a GREAT Team that truly LOVE the Club and delight in seeing you happy!

I know a new social Calendar will be out soon..maybe one of our famous wine tastings will be on there..  Fall football receptions with the Alumns are coming (Think… like you..just a few years later! ) our Board will be visiting on the 21st and of course the 80’s Semi!

Lots of FUN is on the horizon..Be sure to take advantage of your ability to have ownership of an event.. ask any Club officer..

Until then be safe, spread the word about our Wonderful Club and do not hesitate to let me know what else we can do for you!

Fall Opens At The Inn!

Posted September 15, 2012

What an exciting opening week everyone! A ‘sneak preview’ BBQ on Monday ( who else was open for it’s Members?! ), a great Formal signing in ceremony with an original ledger from 1912, a GREAT photo of our group and building out front, and  a delicious steak dinner! How can you beat that?!

We are just warming up, so stay tuned and keep the suggestions coming.. We are having a glitch with that function, but should have it worked out soon.

Here’s to Cloister @100, and to another 100 hence!

Happy 2012 everyone, it’s the Club’s 100 anniversary year, WOW!!!! What a great time to be here, both for graduating Seniors,and Juniors helping in the recruiting effort for that remarkable time. Monday holds a very important all club meeting @ 6:30 with the introduction of our new Top five officers, a discussion about the year to come, and our efforts as regards recruiting. Please be sure to make every effort to attend and add your voice as a Member of an INCLUSIVE, NOT exclusive club. The next few weeks have great Members only events along with opportunities to reach out to those who will be Spring Social, and Fall dining members. This is YOUR Cloister Family for you to encourage to join here. In the meantime as always keep me posted as to your requests, and we will provide..

Hasta Man~ana!

Hi Innards,
Nope not the Band.. We have a couple of Changes on the B L scene..Jim is off to Terrace, he prefers a ‘sloppier kitchen’ (His words!), and we Welcome Joe from the Olde York Country Club. Joe does a great Job, and I’m sure you will enjoy his preparations. Be sure to give him a warm welcome, as we wish Jim a fond farewell…

Make sure Karon knows you loved her Indian dinner she made w/ Cindy tonight!

Greetings inmates,
Looks Like our info tech chairs now have us up and running. I tried to respond to earlier suggestions, and arrgghh they got deleted… Thanks for your good work getting us on track Luis! Well Fall is here, the last of the Jersey tomatoes and corn, the arrival of excellent local apples (check out the honeycrisps!) and pears..we’ll get some caramel, and candy ones too!

We’ll be having an Oktober Fest dinner prior to break, and a ‘Jazz Cafe’ dinner as well..I’ll be working on the details with the officers..stay tuned.. Of course we’ll have a grand Semi Formal on Sat 10/15, and Sunday 10/23 we’ll be hosting members of the Delaware Valley Alfa Romeo Club for their annual Picnic. I am a member of this group, we’ll be here between Brunch and dinner…so do come visit. You will see a fine collection of Vintage Italian autos, one year we had 2 1938 LeMans Race cars… talk about ‘Heavy Metal’!!!

Please keep those suggestions, and visits coming..we love to see you smiling… and bestest wishes to our Jewish Members this week, for a Healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year.

Yours in ‘Good Taste”
Executive Chef Alan Aptner
