Belmont Raceway Outing
May 7, 2016
May 7th was our second annual trip to Belmont Racetrack. The day was a huge success and especially meaningful because our New York Elks sponsored the fifth race and we dedicated it to our dearly departed brother, friend and fellow bartender Stephen P. Hayes. At this time I would like to thank everyone that pitched in to help make the day as fun as it was. Tommy (The Torch) Rouch and Peter Killegrew, they both met me early loaded coolers and trucks to take all of our food and gear to the track. They also did an outstanding job on the grill. They were there to the end to get everything back to the lodge. Thank you Jean Hunt and Gina Flaherty for the fantastic homemade salads they provided for our group. Jean was also the winner of our festive hat contest, and won a $25 Macy’s gift certificate that was provided by E.R. Anitra Butler. Thank you Anitra for supplying the NY Elks1 banner that was on display for all to see. Three applications were also handed out. Thank you Crystal Alpert for your help picking up food set up and clean up. Joe Serafino and his wife Veronica did a super job with the 50/50 raffle. Side note Veronica came in a close second place in our festive hat contest. Carol and Diane Thomas also deserve a shout out for all they did. They were at Belmont early and helped unload the trucks set up and break down our picnic area and returned all bottles and cans. The camaraderie and teamwork of everyone involved was much appreciated. I also want to thank everyone for attending, I heard nothing but good things and how much everyone had a Great Time. We doubled in size from last year and I hope next year will be even bigger and better than ever. Don’t forget to get your money in for our fishing trip to be held on July 10.. Thank you all enjoy the summer. Don’t forget to tip your bartender
