Christmas at the Coonamessett
The 50+ Club of Christ the King Parish held its annual Christmas Lunch in early December at the famed Coonmessett Inn in Falmouth with 110 members attending. All enjoyed the seasonal decorations of the Inn, as well as the delicious fare of the Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Chicken Marsala main entrees, with dessert of ice cream eggnog pie. Entertainment was by Peter Kostopoulos at the keyboard, in which he also played saxophone lead. Some Club members also got into their entertainment mode and acted “The Ed Sullivan Show”, much to the delight and laughter of the attendees. All and all, it was a nice way to kick-off the holidays for everyone.
Hypnotist David Hall
You’re feeling warm, comfortable, drowsy – your eyelids are getting heavy – closing … HEY – NOT THE AUDIENCE, THE ON-STAGE PARTICIPANTS!
And so went hypnotist David Hall’s November 6th performance. Before our very eyes David Hall hypnotized fifteen 50+ club members and guests to the amusement and amazement of over 100 onlookers. The hypnotized subjects were thrilled to “win” a high stakes lottery and a dance contest, but had trouble remembering who they were and seemed bewildered to find themselves on the CTK stage. They even believed they were peeking at a half-naked David Hall.
After the performance the traditional 50/50 drawing and lottery prizes were awarded followed by goodies, coffee and friendly get-togethers.
Seems like a good time was had by all!
50+ Tours Pennsylvania’s “Grand Canyon” Region

Upon arrival, members were treated to gourmet dining followed by a tour of the Peter Herdic House on “Millionaires Row” in Williamsport.
The next day members boarded modern day covered wagons for a tour of the “Grand Canyon” of Pennsylvania, formed by melting
prehistoric glaciers. Scenic views of deep canyons,
rivers and rolling hills were the order of the day as were the colors
of abundant foliage that delighted all. The 2nd night, dinner was served
onboard the paddle wheeler “Hiawatha” as it cruised the Susquehanna
River. Before departing, the group toured the reknown Little League
World Series facilities, as well as, the Thomas Taber museum, noted for
its’ artifacts and history of the region.Arriving home on October 29,
50+ Club Members Enjoy Comedy
The old adage, " Laughter is the best medicine", was never truer for the 225 members and guests of the Christ the King's 50+Club who were entertained by noted Boston comedians Dave Rattigan and Bob Seibel. Widely known throughout the comedy circuit for performances in such clubs as "Giggles" in Saugus and Boston's "Nick's Comedy Stop", their material focused on life growing up in the 1940's and 50' s, eras easily identified by the audience.
Following the show, all enjoyed a dessert buffet and the anticipation of winning one of the many raffle prizes, including potted mums, gift certificates to area restaurants-Ninety Nine, Sienna, and Bobby Byrnes. The winner of the 50/50 grand raffle in which she shared her winnings with a charity of her choice, left the gathering not only satiated and smiling but also knowing her charity benefitted by a $220 donation as well as having $220 in her purse.
Christ the King's 50+ Club Narragansett Bay Lighthouse Tour
90 members of the Christ the King 50+ Club recently enjoyed a luncheon at Captain Jack’s Restaurant in Rhode Island culminating with a delightful cruise to view ten Narragansett Bay historic lighthouses on a high speed catamaran ferry. Given the choice of either lobster or prime rib, Captain Jack’s portions proved to be more than ample, even to the hardiest appetites.
Members had to hang on to their hats as the fast ferry made its’ way around the busy bay to the various sites. The catamaran motored at slow speed into Newport Harbor, allowing members to view the luxurious yachts at anchor. A special treat for all was the opportunity to view many ocean going, multi-deck private vessels which were in port accompanying the Tall Ships visit. Returning home, exhausted but happy members, exclaimed their praise for the well organized and varied activities offered by the club’s planners
Christ the King's 50+ Club Enjoys Another Successful Lobster Luncheon
Before an near capacity crowd, the 50+ Club hosted its' annual lobster luncheon. This year's attendees were entertained by the Lee Childs' Bourbon Street Paraders. The music proved to be so engaging that a number of couples put their tapping feet to the dance floor. Without question, New Orleans had come to Mashpee! This year's lobster rolls were provided by the Eat Your Heart Out caterers of Falmouth. Their huge offerings,over- flowing with the succulent crustacean, left no one wanting more. Given the rhythms of the Paraders and the multitude of food, what more could one ask for- maybe the smell of the salt air and a bit of sand under our feet.
Boston Harbor Cruise
Rain and showers did not dampen the spirits of the The 50+ Club members of Christ the King Parish, as they departed Mashpee for a luncheon cruise aboard “The Spirit of Boston” in Boston harbor. To the pleasant surprise of all, after departing Mashpee's overcast sky, the weather in “Beantown” yielded bright skies and a perfect day for seeing the Boston harbor at it’s best.
First up for activities, was a wonderful motorcoach tour of Boston narrated by Richard Tellier, a club member who is also a professional tour guide. Many members commented on how nice it was to view the sights at their leisure, without the hassle of having to drive through the traffic. While touring the harbor, members enjoyed a bountiful buffet as the ship passed the many historic landmarks that enable Boston to offer visitors a glimse of early Americana.
Following lunch, members were entertained via music and humor by the ships multi-talented crew. Disembarking the ship, the 50+ Club members visited the Quincy Market area for some shopping and free time on their own. The trip home to the Cape was filled with their thoughts and stories of a great day, that had started on a much different note.
