What has been going on at the Cedar Club – 2013-2017 ??

So What’s Going On?

Just “blogging” along

2013

Our first Team trivia contest was recently held at the Norristown Cedar Club.  Not many people were in attendance but everyone there had a lot of fun.  So much so that we may have it annually.  So stay tuned and keep up with what is posted.

Next up – Tall Cedar Convention held in Wildwood NJ!!  Pictures will be posted as they come in.

Don’t forget on June 8th 2013 is our “attic treasures – flea market – crafts” sale again.  And, yes, the kitchen will be open & we will be serving our famous zeps along with other foods as well.  Time is from 8 until 2 PM and it will be just for ONE DAY so don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Some of us went out to eat at the Jem and Fairview Diner where we had some very good food, company and we supported the Tall Cedars in the fight against MD.

The Tall Cedars are working on something new and different. In the works – a Wine Feast & Art Gallery Event where visitors can sample wine from Pennsylvania wineries and fine food from local businesses.  Stay tuned.  Still working on that one.

More and more people are coming out to our bi monthly bingos.  Maybe they like “winning”, maybe the food, or maybe they just like coming out for fun.  Bingo is only 10 cents a card or 3 for 25 cents.   

And of course Elvis will enter the building again in December.  The menu will be posted a little later as well as other information. 

Our annual Tall cedar Convention has come and gone already. Except for the rain on Saturday that cancelled our parade, all things went well for our SGTC Dick Feezer.

Coming up on May 24th is our 2nd bingo of the month.  This time the jackpot is up to around $300.00 !!  Better come early to grab a seat because the crowd may storm in for this (or maybe our famous zeps!). 

Congratulations to our latest jack pot winner for winning almost $300 in the May 24th Bingo Event.  The money keeps flowing every month.

Coming up June 8th our “flea market – art &crafts sales – attic treasures – you name it.  Kitchen will be open.  Come early we’re opening up our doors at 8:00 AM.

Our last “attic treasures – arts & crafts” sales was a great success!!!  Our next sale will be on OCTOBER 5th 2013!!  We will keep you updated.

Right now we are at Acme Market in Trooper Pa selling roses for Jerry’s kids for MD.  We would like to thank all of the EXTREMELY generous and friendly people out there!!! We can’t thank you enough!!

Update on our breakfast – because of an emergency the breakfast has been postponed until further notice.

Bingo last night again.  Cash prizes!  Plenty of food! Great ZEPS!

Norristown Cedar Club had their Attic Treasures – Arts and Crafts – and Yard Sale again this past weekend.  Another successful event. Hopefully we will do another.  Does anyone have any other ideas about “events” that we could do? If you do, drop us a line at  norristownforest@live.com 

 

Mark Reno was just here as ELVIS. A great time was had by all and the room was packed!  As they say, “Elvis has left the building”.

There will be new exiting events being planned for the new year in 2014.  Stay tuned to check in and see what’s going on!

First up, coming April 26th, will be our “Trivia Night” again. And yes we will have cash prizes again. It’s BYOB and BYOF or snacks, whatever.  Just hoping that we will NOT have anymore snowstorms!!!!

We are in the early stages of planning an “Eat Out” at the Jem Restaurant where all day a certain portion of each bill will be donated to our cause to end Muscular Dystrophy and all other of these horrible muscle diseases!  If you have ever seen anyone with Lou Gerhrig’s  disease you will understand. 

OK it’s here. Eat at the Jem Restaurant on May 13th – breakfast or lunch!!

The Tall  Cedar Convention for 2014 has come and gone!  Where does the time go?  A great convention was had by all. Met many friends from Forests around the country and we will miss them until we meet again next year.
Also, just returned from the Jem Restaurant where today a percentage of their proceeds from their restaurant will go to MDA.  Thank you Jem Restaurant. You truly are a JEM.
  
Rest in Peace, Bob

Here we are at the top  of the new year.  Hope everyone is safe and warm.  We are in the process of getting things all worked out for the new year!  Any ideas?  Just contact us! Our First Friday zeps as well as our bimonthly bingos are going strong! They will continue for this year again.  Our rentals for the building are strong too!  If anyone is interested in a building rental, contact us.

Time is fleeting.  Coming up we’re working on a new “attic treasurers and flea market ” event for July. Before you know it, it will be here.  Our bingos are getting more popular.  I guess people may have a bad case of  cabin fever.

  Seems like our convention at Wildwood was days ahead. And now it is in the past already.  As they say,” Be aware of time. It is like a thief in the night.”

Our bingos are very popular as there are not as many in our community as there once was.  So take advantage of it while we are still here for who knows what will happen in the future?

Things are getting pretty hectic here even in summer.  If you need a building rental, you better call early as our rentals are going pretty fast. Next event – our annual “yard sale-attic treasures-and anything and everything for sale” event.  When? July 18th/ What time? 8:00 until 3:00 PM

Had our annual Yard Sale again. Had close to 45 vendors and everyone sold something!  The food was fantastic!!! The following Friday over 108 people attended and someone won a big jackpot prize of $275.

Busy planning our next event our Holiday Craft Fair!  Should be different & exciting. And, there are more events coming up later in the year.

We still have a very few tables left for our upcoming “Holliday Craft Fair” coming up on October 3rd.  Again, our food will be provided by Chef Jude again – back by popular demand!

Thank you for all who attended  and to all of our “artisans” who attended our first “Holiday Art & Craft” show.  We are looking forward to seeing you all again. We know everyone had a good time even though the gloom and doom weather people gave us a false prediction. The food was FANTASTIC!!!  People fell in love with our food!

Another event coming up in November will be another different show. Stay tuned for updates. 

We are sorry to hear of the passing of JOHN ROACH who died yesterday, Sunday. He will be missed.  Our condolences go to his wife, Kate.

We’re back from Wildwood once again!  Had a wonderful time – except for the weather- which was cold & windy. Had to run out of a restaurant located on the deck by the ocean because the tide was too high & started to drift in. Scary. Saw many friends from the Forests all around our wonderful country. Check our pictures out!!  Leave a comment if you want.

Our website is popular. We are investing out time with LOCAL businesses and just might be working out to everyone’s benefit. We are glad to help.

Just had our annual Flea Market and Attic Treasures sale this past weekend. Was an outstanding success. Everyone is anxious to have another one. And, the food was also OUTSTANDING again.  Coming up will be the Rockets Show and our annual Art and Craft Festival again as well as Chef Jude and his scrumptious food.

And coming up, late August and into the first part of September will be Roses for MD at the Acme market in Lower Providence once again.  Thank you to Acme Markets. Thank you to all of the kind, generous and wonderful people there who help us in our cause.
