End October 2012

Dear Members,

1. MOVEMBER PARTY – Last year over 200 guests raised almost shs 300,000/= at a great party at MYC, which was split between the ”Mt. Kenya Trust”, for the preservation of the Mt Kenya ecosystem & ”Movember”, a worldwide movement for the prevention of cancer in men. This is our one major event for November, so please buy some tickets & come & help us raise even more this year. The party is on Sunday 25th November at the Club (see details below). The mens cancer screening project we support is at Bomu Hospital in Chamgamwe, where they carry out between 15 to 30 screenings every month. It is a small but highly effective project covering a large area, that catches the cancer early when it is easy & cheap to treat successfully. I have attached a photo of myself & Martin Nelson (a Trustee & member of MYC who is a retired Surgeon from UK), presenting a cheque for shs 150,000/= to Dr. Aabid Ahmed, the CEO of Bomu Hospital on behalf of Movember in Mombasa for the funds raised last November.

2. SUNDAY FAMILY AFTERNOONS – We are continuing to provide a wonderful BBQ & our Animator Barack will entertain the kids & act as the Lifeguard in the pool area. The menu this Sunday is attached & it will now be different every Sunday & you can also order from the main Club menu if you wish. Any suggestions to our Head Chef Addah at addahowino@yahoo.com or 0722 438282 please. We would also like to widen the children’s activities & create a playground in the area beyond the pool & this is your opportunity to get together with Farah Khan farahk75@yahoo.com , our very active Chair Lady of the Entertainment Committee & come up with new ideas to make it a more family friendly environment.

3. NEW TERRACE AT THE SIDE OF THE CLUB – This area has now been beautifully paved by Kuldip. It is a perfect location for small groups to hold private functions & the fact that it is in the shade in the afternoons makes it the coolest place in the Club after 4pm. If you would like to have a BBQ, or Koroga with your family & friends please contact the Manager at the Club phone number 0729 396563 or Club email address mombasayc@gmail.com .

COMMODORE.
