Chatham Men’s Club Begins 63rd Year Virtually
The Chatham Men’s Club (CMC) invites you to join returning members for its virtual ZOOM meeting format.
The 2020-2021 season’s meetings take place on your home computer or tablet every other Friday afternoon starting at about 1:15 pm, in place of our traditional in-person weekly gatherings. Meetings will continue through May with a new interesting and thought-provoking speaker twice each month.
CMC members are semi-retired or retired men living in Chatham. The CMC began in 1957 as the Chatham Retired Men’s Association, which gathered over coffee and donuts to discuss current affairs, local and otherwise. The CMC continues that tradition and has added other activities for its members, including volunteering (post-COVID) at the Town of Chatham’s Railroad Museum as well as at the Godfrey Windmill. As part of its social commitment to Chatham, CMC has also adopted the Chatham Food Pantry. Over the past year, CMC members donated more than $6,000 to the pantry.
Please see our calendar for upcoming topics and speakers. For more information, review the Club’s website or email inquiries to CRMA1712@gmail.com.
Happy Birthday Karl!
At its final virtual meeting of this season, the Chatham Men’s Club celebrated – a bit early – the centennial birthday of 33-year member Karl Fehrle, who turns 100 on July 9. After the meeting, moderator George Lane (left), and executive committee members Tom Geagan (back center) and Chuck Borkoski (right), delivered a proclamation from Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and gifts to Karl (front center) at his home. For the past 35 years, Karl has been involved in local Chatham organizations and currently plays the alto saxophone in four bands, including the Chatham and Brewster bands, Sentimental Journey and the Sound Dunes Ensemble.
