The Passing of Bob Hambly

It is with great sadness that we write to inform you of the passing of a dear friend, Bob Hambly. Bob was a member and friend of the Haviland Club for many years and could be seen regularly at the card tables until very recently.

The service will be held on Saturday at 2 PM at MacLean’s Funeral Home on Ole King Square in Charlottetown. Visiting hours are Saturday, 12:00 to 1:45 PM.

For more information, please see http://macleanfh.com/death-notices/obituaries/.

I know you will join us in sending Norma, Jill, Jamie and family our deepest condolences at this difficult time.

THE HAVILAND CLUB NEWSLETTER

January 16, 2018

This is a Newsletter to the Members of the Haviland Club. 

All activities pertain to member-only activities unless otherwise indicated.

We are accepting new members. If interested, please contact thehavilandclub@gmail.com.

Thanks to those choosing to wear indoor shoes: Thanks to the bridge players and others who park their winter boots in the new shoe trays and wear indoor shoes in the Club. This simplifies cleanup and makes the Club safer, drier and homier for all.

More Information on the Murder Mystery, Drop Dead Gorgeous!, February 10, 7 PM: 

  • Tickets are $10 for members, $20 for non-Members, and available at the bar.
  • We hope members will come out, so tickets will not be sold to non-members until this coming Saturday, and posters will go up after that (thanks, Jill, for the suggestion).
  • Don’t worry about being required to do anything but mingle and have fun! Just come party. It’ll be more fun if you pretend to be the persona you’ve been given, but it doesn’t mean acting in front of anyone. Only one or two people (other than the organizing committee) will be asked to say or do certain things, and they will know and agree to it beforehand.
  • This murder mystery is like a game; the purpose is to have fun and ‘sherlock’ out the murderer before s/he’s announced.
  • Please do get your tickets ahead of time, as there is a lot of prep work to be done.

And thanks, Giovanni. More than fifty people came to dine on Giovanni’s spaghetti and sweets last Friday night. Thanks, Giovanni, and your helpers (especially Bruce and Pat for the cleanup), for such a wonderful meal. Did you know that Giovanni is offering Italian lessons (Ciao! Italian Conversation with Giovanni, $250 for 8 weeks/16 lessons) at the Club on Tuesday and Thursday evenings? If interested, contact Giovanni at 902-916-3522.

Bye the way, the Club knives are in need of an expert sharpener. If you’re good at that, could you please let Tricia know, and come sharpen the Club’s key kitchen knives? BYOS (Bring Your Own Sharpener!)

Coming Activities: (All events are for members and their guests only unless “Public Event” is indicated.)

TODAY—Book Club, Tuesday January 16, 7 PM

Tonight we’re discussing Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give and perhaps also Lincoln on the Bardo by George Saunders. Come join a fascinating, insightful conversation, and to help pick the next reads.

Craft Club, Wednesday Evenings, 7 PM 

Come for the conversation, the activity, the production.

Inspirational Writing Circle, Wednesday Evenings, 7 PM
Starts with an idea, a blank screen or sheet of paper.

Writers, and those interested in writing, this is a great forum to develop ideas, talk narrative arcs and other writing techniques. Membership is required, but non-members are more than welcome to come participate two or three times to see if Haviland Club Membership is in their future, as it should be!

Coffee Club, Thursday Mornings 10:00 to 11:30 AM

More discussion last week on the history of the Haviland Club and the west side of Charlottetown. Did you know that the wrought iron fence around the property at Grafton and Rochford Streets originally fenced the Haviland Club—or the US Consulate when it resided here? Isn’t that cool? There’s always a fun conversation, with different people dropping in each week. The Remarkable Esther Lowden story

Please Note: If schools are closed, coffee club is cancelled that day.

Friday Social!, Friday, January 19, Bar opens at 4, draws at 6.

It’s a Friday social this week at the Haviland Club, with nibbles and happy hour prices. New members—Friday evenings are a great time to come meet other members. Best to come by 5:30 or earlier, as its busiest 5:30 to 7.

VegPEI Vegan Potluck Dinner, Monday, January 29, Doors Open at 6:30, Dinner at 7 (Public Event)

VegPEI welcomes members to join us the last Monday of every month for our fabulous vegan potluck. It’s strongly recommended that you bring a food item so there’s enough for everyone. If you’re new to vegan food—no worries! Just ensure the dish you bring doesn’t include animal flesh of any kind, dairy (cheese, milk, butter, etc.), eggs, gelatin or honey. If you bring a dish, please bring a list of ingredients that we can display. If you need more help or suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact us on our Facebook page. We also ask that everyone bring their own plates, bowls, utensils etc. Minimum donation is two dollars if you bring a dish; minimum donation is seven dollars if you do not bring a dish. You don’t need to be a vegan or vegetarian to come, just bring an open mind and an empty belly!

Paint and Pour III, Wednesday, January 31, 7 PM (Public Event)

The popular Haviland Club Paint and Pour featuring instructor Cathy Butler returns again. If you haven’t painted before, come surprise yourself. You’ll be amazed what you can accomplish under Cathy’s tutelage. If you’ve painted before, come hone your skills! Although not yet decided, nice summery seascapes may be at least part of the artistic model. Members $20 (including all supplies); Non-Members $30. Tickets are available at the bar.

Saturday February 10, 7 PM—Murder Mystery! (Public Event)

It’s the Bootleggers’ Valentines Bash at the top bootlegger’s in town, a joint called Drop Dead Gorgeous. Present this evening are bootleggers from across the Island, their henchmen, and prominent members of the Island community. There’s live music, dancing and revelry…until things go horribly wrong. You’re part, should you be prepared to accept it, is to have fun, mingle, maybe dance a little, and play a role as you try to figure out whodunit—before someone else is killed! If you haven’t told Hank, Cathy or Mark you’re interested, please do, so the organizing team can think up a truly heinous, or maybe just fun persona for you!

Haviland Club Scotch Tasting, February 23, 7 PM (Public Event)

Back by popular demand, because so many people wished they’d moved quicker to get tickets for the January tasting. Join host by Gary Ready, and enjoy a fun, interesting evening.

Reconfirming the Window Proposal from InnerG: Have you noticed how warm the Club is now? It’s because of the Innerg Interior Insulating Windows (www.innergwindows.com the Executive recently installed in most of the downstairs windows, eliminating heat loss and drafts and making the Club considerably more comfortable. Some members have been so impressed with the results that they’ve had these interior windows installed in their homes. Now, if members choose to purchase these windows for their homes, the Manufacturer has agreed to rebate 8% of the cost of the windows to The Haviland Club’s building repairs account!  You get increased comfort and cut your heating and cooling costs and the Club gets improvement money. For a quote or to learn more, contact Barry MacLean at 902-367-4601.

Sigh. The Christmas decorations have come down and the moosemilk is almost gone—as we enter the Canadian season of “Is spring come yet?” Of course there are fun winter activities, which we urge everyone to enjoy, like skiing, snowshoeing, and coming to the Haviland Club to hang out with friends. It doesn’t have to be an evening, or a planned activity. Come on a morning, afternoon or evening to sit by a fire with friends or curl up with a book. Check out this picture of the lounge.  Is there a more beautiful winter place to be?              

 

Coming Up: Drop Dead Gorgeous!: Your Entertainment Committee is working on a Murder Mystery for the Saturday before Valentine’s Day, February 10. Drop Dead Gorgeous; Murder at the Bootlegger’s Valentine’s Bash, will feature a murder or three, music, dancing, a chance to play a role and to ‘sherlock’ out the killer before it’s too late! Stay tuned for more next week—and let Hank, Cathy or Mark know if you plan to come, so the group can come up with the perfect, twisted persona for you to play. Remember, there’s no work for you to do that evening and no real acting, just playing pretend, dressing up a little (or not), and having fun and more fun.

The HAVILAND CLUB NEWSLETTER

January 2, 2018

Welcome to 2018! Here’s wishing our members, guests and friends a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. We look forward to sharing it with you!

We have a holiday basketful of thank yous:

For New Years Eve: Bruce and Pat for organizing and hosting a very successful New Year’s Eve gathering. Thanks for the great nibblies, the good music and the fun conversation–and for making it happen.

For a Record-Breaking Levee: Thanks to Carolyn and Charlie for all the behind the scenes preparation and work, and for the lovely layout in the great room. Thanks to Moosemilk Master Steve for the brew, to Maureen and Jude for serving, to Adele for working the treats table, to Terry for her work in the kitchen, to organize and plate the treats so beautifully (and did it so there was almost no cleanup after). Thanks to Bert, Glenn and Norma Lee for greeting guests at the door. Thanks to the Executive members who came and stood in line for so long. Thanks to Judith for the lovely piano playing, on the lovely piano you had tuned for us, and thanks to Gus for the impromptu and delightful performance of your own levee song. We liked the part about the Haviland Club best! Thanks to the many who brought sweets, without whom the party would not have been the same. Based on bar sales, crowd size, and an estimation at the door, this year’s levee was a smashing success! In addition, the Club added eight new member applicants over the weekend!

And for Making The Club Soooo Beautiful: Okay, we thanked you already, but the decorations in the Club were so much a part of the holiday season that we want to do it again. We were proud to show the Club off to strangers, thanks to Jill and Sharon, Jo, Norma Lee and Terry for their lovely design work. And once again thanks to Elizabeth Ghiz of Elizabeth’s Garden Florist, www.peiflowers.com, for generously decorating the mantles in the great room.

And to All Who Came Out: It is so important, and so much appreciated, when someone plans and organizes and works to put on an event, that members come out to enjoy it. Thank you so much for being a part of it al!

Coming Activities:

Friday, January 5, $5 Friday with Giovanni! Bar opens at 4, draws and dinner at 6.

Merry Christmas, Haviland Club Newsletter

Merry Christmas Haviland Club Newsletter

December 19, 2017

Well, Christmas is less than a week away. Wasn’t it fall just last week, and summer the week before?

All we want to do at this time of year is to send a thank you to all who helped, and all who came out, to the Haviland Club’s First Annual Christmas Potluck Dinner last Friday. Thanks to Terry for giving so much time to help with the dinner, to Calleen and others who helped out, and to Hank and his Prunes for the wonderful entertainment. And thanks to those who came out—almost sixty members! What a wonderful time to get together to celebrate. Thank you!

About New Years Eve

Just a reminder that we’ll be open New Years Eve. There’ll be light snacks, the fires will be lit and there’ll be music in the lounge. Many will make this their New Years Eve destination, some will stop in on their way out or way home. It’s your Club, and it’ll be open for you.

New Years Levee: Then, the next morning, come to the Haviland Club’s New Years Levee, with the famous Moose Milk mixed by Steve K, and sweets for the hundreds of expected guests. If you are able to prepare or purchase a plate or tray of sweets to contribute to the effort it would be most appreciated. And if you would like to help serve, clean up or provide tours to those who would like them, that would be welcome, too. Please let Tricia know. Please stop by and say hi!

All that’s left to say is:

Elizabeth’s Garden Florist decorated the fireplace mantles.

Thank you to Elizabeth’s Garden Florist for the beautiful decorations on the fireplaces.

 

Support local Business.

 

 

The HAVILAND CLUB NEWSLETTER, December 12, 2017

We had a few problems with out website last week. Things are back under control.

The HAVILAND CLUB NEWSLETTER, December 12, 2017

The HAVILAND CLUB NEWSLETTER

December 12, 2017

 

 

Nurture Your Christmas Spirit: Take a drive to Johnston’s River to see our Gary W’s astonishing Christmas display. Tune your car radio to Gary’s Christmas station and see the thousands of lights and lit displays dance to the music! Thousands visit every year, and when you come you’ll see why. It’s free, but if you choose to donate the money goes to Santa’s Angels.

 

And then go to Canoe Cove, 6452 Route 19, to see the live nativity scene on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Look closely and you’ll see our Calleen G as one of the actors. Admission is by donation, and proceeds support Santa’s Angels and The Children’s Wish Foundation of P.E.I. Oh, and as the Guardian says, “The display will include real animals, so you never know what might happen!”

 

Coming Activities:

 

Craft Club Meetings are Postponed Until the New Year 

Lots going on, eh? We’ll see everyone in the new year.

 

Coffee Club, Thursday Morning 10:00 to 11:30: The Hunt for Esther Lowden

Bert and Mark spent last Friday morning at the Provincial Archives sorting through pictures in hope of finding one of Esther Lowden, the remarkable women who built and first owned the home of the Haviland Club. Success was not to be had, as the expression goes, but the search continues. On Thursday, they’ll share the story and ask for advice.

 

Friday, December 15th, Christmas Potluck With ‘The Prunes’

We’ll all be there this Friday for the Christmas Potluck. Will you? This is our time to come together, to enjoy each other’s company and being together. There will be entertainment by the guitar group The Prunes, featuring Hank Stinson, and perhaps some delightful dramatics. If you haven’t yet, please sign up and let us know what you plan to bring. It’s Christmas, folks. We belong together.

 

Tuesday December 19, 7 PM – December Book Club

The book for December is Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders, which we hear can be a distinctive read in a new style, so you’d better start now. For January, it will be Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give. 

 

Coming Together on New Year’s Eve. 7 PM to Midnight+

The Club will open on New Years Eve, with munchies, the fires lit and music in the lounge. We might even have a time of melodic (acoustic) entertainment. Many of us will make this our destination until evening, but you can also drop in before or after going to other activities. Come on by!

 

New Years Levee: The Haviland Club’s New Years Levee will go all out again this year, with the famous Moose Milk and sweets for the hundreds of expected guests. If you are able to prepare or purchase a plate or tray of sweets to contribute to the effort it would be most appreciated. And if you would like to help serve, clean up or provide tours to those who would like them, that would be welcome, too. Please let Tricia know.

1. Things to do. We have a number of clubs within the Club: book club, craft club, darts night, writer’s circle and a variety of cards. We have two full size billiards tables; we go out occasionally to Saturday Afternoon at the Races. Fishing is available at the Officers’ pond for an additional fee. And we are in a bit of a music lull, but like to present music on Wednesday evenings and are hoping to do so again soon. If there is something a member would like to do, and like to help make happen, it can be done.

2. Socializing. Events such as special dinners and parties, trivia nights, scotch and wine tastings, golf tournament and more, depending on the interests of members. Friday nights are special at the Club, with socials or $5 Fridays, where a member or caterer provides dinner for a cost of $5. Fridays are special, but you can drop by almost any evening.

3. Beautiful space. Simply put, the Haviland Club is a lovely place to be. On an evening, on a dull day or any time you feel like a change of scenery, sit by marble fireplace or in a sunny window to read a book, play the tuned piano, wireless internet, listen to music or socialize. Our pleasure in the building is a big part of our joy in the Club.

4. Member pricing. Members enjoy reduced pricing for room rentals personal events and meetings; to participate in Club activities; and for purchases at the bar, and for coffee and tea. But the great benefit of being a member is friendship. It’s growing and maintaining your social network, and developing a new group of people who care about you.

Friday evening is a good time to stop by, join the Friday evening social (4:00-6:00pm) and talk to Club Members and Executive Members about the Club and start your application.

Book Launch, The Somewhere Sun: Mark Belfry

6 December at 19:00–21:30

Everyone is invited to the Launch of The Somewhere Sun, Book Two of the Reefsong, by Mark Belfry. Both The Somewhere Sun and The Suncaster, Book One, will be available for purchase. If you prefer to buy on line (both are available from all online retailers), or don’t read and just want to say hello, please come do that. It’ll be a celebration.

In hopes that those who come will stay and make a party of it, Mark provides a free beverage with every purchase of The Somewhere Sun. If you’re in Charlottetown and can make it, please come.
Oh, and first reviews are coming in: “A compelling read with meat on its bones for the mind to dine on.”
