MARCH 2021

TO OUR RETURNING MEMBERS AND HOMEOWNERS OF HOLIDAY CITY SOUTH.

The 400 Club was started in 1985 and there were 400 members. The purpose of the 400 Club is to have neighbors meet neighbors at a dinner dance held at the end of each six-month period. There are no monthly meetings. The dinner dance is held at the Clarion Hotel, membership is now limited to 175 to190 members.
The dinner dance at the Clarion Hotel is from 5 to 9pm on the first Tuesday of April and October. The dinner consists of two appetizers, choice of an entree, dessert, soda, tea and coffee. One alcoholic beverage is included. (the rest you pay for) Prizes are given out during the six-month periods, May thru October and November thru April. The captains meet to hold the six-monthly drawings, there are five 25-point drawings each month for a total of 30 drawings. At the dinner dance there are another 200, 100 and six 50-point drawings.
 
The membership sign up is held in April and October. At this time, we do not know what the Clarion Hotel’s increased membership fee will be. In April 2020, the membership was $40 per person which was returned to the members due to the cancellation of the event. When a date that we can safely hold the dinner and the new price is determined, it will be published in the Southwind.
 
For information, please call John Fay at 732-504-7373. If there is no answer, please leave your name and phone number and he'll get back to you.
Thank you, 400 Club Captains

OCTOBER 2020

The 400 club captains were hoping to have our dinner dance this Oct. 6. However, due to the virus and with the limited number of people allowed at gatherings, a number of members are saying they would not attend the dinner dance because of their concerns; therefore, we will cancel the dinner dance.  Even though we have had 20 prizes given out, the club will still give a full refund of $40 back to all of our members. We hope to get the checks to you by Oct. 2020, either in person or by mail.  When we start the club up again, the members will be notified first if they want to join up again, then we will go to open enrollment.
 
Thank You for your participation. And have a safe autumn.
 
400 Club Captains

The other news is the price for food at the Clarion Hotel has gone up again, the club has absorbed two raises in the past seven years, this one was too much to absorb. 
 
For our next six-month period May 2020, to Oct. 2020 and for any other six-month periods, we must raise the price from $40.00 to $45.00. 
 
There has been a rumor that dinners were taken home for members that were not at the dinner dance. That is not true, some people took home parts of their own dinner that was left over. We notified the servers, no one can take home a dinner for someone who is not there. 
 
Just a reminder, the dinner dance in April will be on Tuesday night April 14, 2020.

JUNE 2017

400 CLUB DINNER DANCE - APRIL 2017

Our 64th dinner dance went, as always, well. There were two exceptions. First the head waitress got our meal mixed up with another party, and the servers asked if we wanted sirloin or chicken parmigiana. That was their mistake. We had been offered different meals. When it was straightened out we had the meals we had offered. But since some of our members were upset; we decided we will have sirloin at our next dinner dance in Oct. The second problem was at the bar. The bartender couldn’t keep up with the amount of drinks. We will have two bartenders till the crowd thins out from now on.
