Holiday Party – 2015

201512_Holiday Party_20151205-185706   December 6, 2015



There’s nothing much better to lift the spirits in December than a fine meal, with great friends, in a beautifully decorated 300 year-old Bucks County Inn.

The famous Plumbsteadville Inn was alive with holiday cheer and buzzing with people ready to party, especially those classic car nuts in the second floor private room. Poinsettia plants adorned each of the many tables and more gifts than ever sat waiting, on the front table, to be exchanged for the winning ticket stubs.  Gathering together this fine evening were Dick & Sandy Suffredini, Tom & Jaimee Rippert, Mike Karen Kearns, Lew Phillips, Jerry & Lee Keller, Bill & Evelyn Webb, Earl Wanklin, Graham & Susan Gill, John & Pat Hunt, Ray & Faith DeCesare, Jeff & Robin Rose, Ernie & Barbara Feldgus, Bob & Terri Tiley, Dave & Karen Paul, Louise Story, Mark & Janet Singer, Paul & Fran Holl, Paul & Evonna Phillips, Curtis & Sally Yocum, Pat & Patty Cawthorne, Adam & Eva Ilnicki, Ben& Cyndi Nolan, Bill & Linda Boorse, Dave Johnson, Greg & Janice Lake, and Brian Gumpert.

Many men’s ties were in the running for best holiday neckwear but the hands-down winner in that category went to Tom Rippert. It featured a beer-pouch, which was carefully monitored by the bartender to be certain that the esteemed president wouldn’t suffer from a dry throat. Frequent reminders for refills, followed by brief fits of coughing, enabled our M.C. to complete his appointed duties in fine fashion for the final time. YES! The final time, and Jaimee too!

As if that announcement wasn’t distressing enough, Dick and Sandy Suffredini followed with a retirement statement of their own. The heart and soul of DVC and the energetic, personable quartet responsible for all the great organization and planning that has made our club the template for others to emulate.

That’s enough for the bad news. Tom, Jaimee, Dick and Sandy will be available to assist all who volunteer. Rising to the occasion already are Adam and Eva (one of DVC’s most active couples) who volunteered for membership duties – an important function.

Take a look at the member’s photo gallery and enlist the active ones to volunteer, it might be you!

Don’t forget to check out next year’s calendar of events…it features some great, new outings.
