IRENE BETTE:   We are so proud of Irene!   She recently received the Venice Theatre's 2010 President's Award in recognition of outstanding volunteer service.   This award is given annually to a volunteer whose work in the past year has gone far beyond the call of duty in more than one area of the Theatre's activities.   Irene has been a volunteer for the past 12 years, but here is a short list of her work the past year:   House management and ushering for both theatres during the season, performing member of the Silver Foxes, volunteer for the Loveland Partnership, volunteer for Troupe in a Trunk, volunteer with Venice Theatre auditions, member of the Raising More Money Development team and annual donor, and lastly daily volunteer clerical and planning for the Education Department.   We're happy that you're a resident of KGC, Irene!

RECIPE:   This week we have a delicious recipe from Lyn Donovan, which we thought you all might enjoy:
           "DEVILED EGGS"
     6 hard-boiled eggs
     3 Tb. mayonnaise
     1/2 stock celery (remove string), finely diced
     1/2 tsp. Mrs. Dash (original)
     1/4 tsp. "Radia" Complete Seasoning
     2 shakes each - salt and pepper

Slice eggs in half - remove yolks.   Mash yolks, add mayonnaise and mix.  
Then add all other ingredients.   Mix and adjust seasonings to
taste.   Spoon egg mixture into egg white halves.   Sprinkle with paprika.  
(Can also add a small amount of finely diced onion if wish).   Enjoy!
Thanks for sharing this recipe with us, Lyn.

THOUGHTS:   When I think of all the work that is done by members of KGC, it is almost impossible to believe.   One of the great reasons to live at the Club is because of the wonderful volunteers.   Now things will quiet down a little, but plans are already underway for next season.      ---SJB
