I want to share a little bit about Dorothy Madill was a very loving and nice woman who had been a long time member to Buffalo Deaf Senior Citizens and BCD as well. She was a great mother and loved her sons. She will be missed by everyone. We all will miss her too. She loves playing cards, gin and bridge club. One time, Debbie Madill and I went visiting Dorothy at the nursing home, we played old maid. She enjoyed our company.
MEMORIAL DAY PICNIC:
Hello everyone! What a great ???? Memorial Day picnic from last month!! The turnout was excellent, as approximately 126 people came to the picnic and everyone had a great time! The food was excellent. Plenty of Chinese raffle items were raffled off, and folks sure were happy with their winnings and so on! Mark Bess won the picnic cornhole tourney for the first time ever, as he stunned Peter Newton at the end with several hole scores. Plus the keg of Blue Light beer, which was generously donated by Holidays bar, was killed as well, and successfully raised funds for the BCD's building fund. Everyone said they were looking forward the upcoming Labor Day picnic in the fall.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY DINNER:
We had an awesome St. Patrick's day dinner with 43 people on Saturday, March 17th. David Haywood, Linda and Larry Godzik worked their butts off cooking. The cornedbeef and chicken were very tasty. I could see everyone enjoyed their dinner. I hope to see more people to continue to be at our monthly dinners like that. Why cook when our beautiful club can provide that for all of us to enjoy.

BCD'S CORN HOLE LEAGUE:
Last December, twenty folks banded together to play this fun league, and eight weeks of play have now passed. Everyone has been having a good time, as they enjoyed the cheap drinks and beers provided by the BCD bar, and playing their cornhole games. There has been a lot of good natured trash talking and the competition has been fierce!!! As of 3/9/18, Henry Majka finally caught up with John C Schultz, who had been residing in first place all season. Henry was very happy about this as John had been taunting everyone from his perch on top of the cornhole hill all season.
As of 3/9/18, Henry and John were in first place, with John Buzz in second place, and lastly, Jeff Leroy along with Justin Whitmore were charging hard from third place towards the top spot??. It's gonna be a fun two weeks of matches coming up!
BCD'S SUPER BOWL PARTY:
Hello everyone! The BCD Super Bowl party, hosted by Peter and Jessica Newton, was a very successful event! Forty-four people attended the event, and everyone reportedly had a very good time! People enjoyed the foods and drinks that were provided, and everyone made comments on how absolutely delicious the homemade chili and the homemade deer venison soup were!!! Interesting note on the side, the cable went out with approximately five minutes left in the Super Bowl game, and folks turned to their mobile phones to find out what the result of the game was! Everyone was SO HAPPY to find out the Philadelphia Eagles had won the game! Fly, Eagles, Fly!!!!!
