Dominican Republic and the Haitian Relief Effort

Monday, 19. March 2012 9:10

Dr. Jeremy Stern recently shared his experiences over the last nine years performing orthopedic surgery and “Sports Medicine” on the impoverished citizens of the Dominican Republic with a lecture and slide show presentation. The lecture included a sample of the people he has had the privilege to help and those he has been fortunate to work with.  He explained to members about the evolution of the “mission” and some of the unintended benefits.  Dr. Stern also touched upon the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and their attempts to help.

The evening began with special Dominican rum cocktails held at the Sports and Activities Center.

Cantonese Cooking Class with Jadine Loo-Dixon

Monday, 12. March 2012 8:08

Bay Club members recently learned the secrets of Chinese cooking with Jadine Loo-Dixon, the owner of Wok Magic, a Mattapoisett Caterer.  Cantonese cuisine is considered to be the finest of China’s regional cuisines, known all over the world for its freshness of ingredients. Jadine drew on her Cantonese heritage and more than 25 years of experience to show members how to take the mystery out of preparing Chinese food.  Jadine’s family immigrated to this country from Canton, China in the 1920s and opened Charlie Wong’s Chinese restaurant in downtown New Bedford.  Her parents operated a second Charlie Wong’s restaurant in the North End of New Bedford while her aunt and two uncles ran the Cathay Temple in Mattapoisett.  Some of the items prepared and served included Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumplings, Wonton Soup and Chicken with Chinese Vegetables, all prepared using the finest ingredients.

Winter Classic Paddle Tennis Tournament

Friday, 2. March 2012 10:59

The Paddle Tennis program at the Bay Club continues to grow steadily due in part to the mild winter here in the northeast.  Sunny, warm weather prevailed for the first ever Bay Club Paddle Tennis Tournament recently held.  Teams competed in a matched pairs, round robin format and participants enjoyed a tasteful lunch prepared by Chef Jim Mercer and his staff.  All players had a winning day with much improved paddle, lots of fun, and camaraderie! Members are looking forward to the season ending Paddle Club Championship to be held at the end of April.
