WANT A DOG?..
If anyone knows a wonderful family that is looking for a one year old, sweet 30-pound mini-irish wolfhound/terrier mix (she is SO cute!), please let us know. Minimal shedding. Gets along great with other dogs and humans. Wants to please. Maximum adorableness. Our hearts are breaking but we need to find a good home for her. Please reach out to Barry at 908-770-4053

Our First Regency and Friends Summer League starts on June 24th. We’ll have 26 teams competing with 52 bowlers in all.
And what makes it even more enlightening, we’ll have 20 women participating.
We’ve outgrown the Tennis Pavilion where we had our event in 2019 (no breakfast in 2020 due to the pandemic), and now with the help of Stephanie & Kori, our event will be held in the main ballroom. Emails to our bowlers will be sent out shortly with more information. Our last breakfast was highly complimented and I’m hoping this years will be far better. Details to follow.
A MESSAGE FROM THE REGENCY CAR CLUB
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT THAT MAYBE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY
When I received this video, there was someone I knew who spent her last 5 years doing this. She lived like a Queen and was treated like a Queen. Never had to pay taxes or fix anything in her home. Three terrific meals each day. She went to “Broadway” type shows everyday. Terrific gym.

PROTECTING YOUR CREDIT CARDS
I guess the Emailer doesn’t know everything. Well, my Discover card got hacked and needed to be changed. I told one of my friends and he told me about what he does. All you have to do is to call your credit card company and ask them to send you an email each time your card is used. IT WORKS!
As we hopefully begin to return to a new normal, our board and committees are busy planning a full schedule of upcoming events. We will begin with a social evening, Wednesday, July 14th, details to follow.
.As a reminder, you must be a paid-up member to attend both this and all future meetings. Please leave a $30.00 dues check, payable to Regency Women’s group, in the lower mailbox of Membership Vice-President Elaine Robin, 127 Country Club Drive.
We look forward to seeing old and new friends as we kick off our summer season.

A RESIDENTS MESSAGE ABOUT A GREAT RESTAURANT
A resident sent me this email about dining at Orchard Park in the Chateau Grande Hotel on Cranberry Road in East Brunswick last night with a friend. It opened in December . The ambiance and beauty is only matched by the delicious cuisine,presentation and exceptional service. The experience was like dining in a Michelin star restaurant in Manhattan. The owner and executive chef is David Burke and the chef who supervised our courses was one of his protégés. I don’t know how many of our Regency friends have heard of the Orchard Park Restaurant but it is on a level of it’s own for dining in Middlesex County or for that matter anywhere. It is only 20 minutes from us and a gastronomic adventure that our friends and neighbors won’t long forget and will want to return to frequently.
Knitting/Crocheting Charity Group
We meet twice a month and make hats, scarves, shawls, lap blankets, slippers, etc to donate to charities. If anyone knows of places where we could donate our handmade items, please let us know. In the past we have donated to care facilities, churches, temples, schools. We would like to support those in need and welcome your ideas. Thank you.

On April 18, 1906, a massive earthquake rocks San Francisco just before daybreak, igniting a devouring inferno. Lives are lost, lives are shattered, but some rise from the ashes forever changed. Sophie Whalen is a young Irish immigrant so desperate to get out of a New York tenement that she answers a mail-order bride ad and agrees to marry a man she knows nothing about. San Francisco widower Martin Hocking proves to be as aloof as he is mesmerizingly handsome. Sophie quickly develops deep affection for Kat, Martin’s silent five-year-old daughter, but Martin’s odd behavior leaves her with the uneasy feeling that something about her newfound situation isn’t right.
Then one early-spring evening, a stranger at the door sets in motion a transforming chain of events. Sophie discovers hidden ties to two other women. The first, pretty and pregnant, is standing on her doorstep. The second is hundreds of miles away in the American Southwest, grieving the loss of everything she once loved.
The fates of these three women intertwine on the eve of the devastating earthquake, thrusting them onto a perilous journey that will test their resiliency and resolve and, ultimately, their belief that love can overcome fear.
Other books from this acclaimed author are: The Last Year of the War and As Bright as Heaven.

I received this link from many residents. If you click on it, you just pick the year and the songs come up that were introduced in that year. I thought you might like this.
Yes, these are very difficult times especially since many, if not all, the clubs we have at Regency are in hibernation.
I have added many new residents who do want to get involved with some of these clubs.. I have no clue who, at Regency, should be contacted if someone wants to join a club.
Please send me your name, telephone number and email address so that I could post the information on my website so new residents can possibly join your club.
Thank you Nina Wolff for providing us with the names of residents who can be contacted if we are interested in joining a Club

So when you walk outside of your home, look to the left, look to the right, and if you have a new neighbor, give him/her my email address and ask him/her to send me their email address to add to the 1800 contacts I already have.

MOVING SALE (EXPIRES 7/24/21)
A magnificent HIGH GLOSS WHITE Wurlitzer butterfly baby grand piano. This little piano is known as the Butterfly Grand built by the famous Rudolph Wurlitzer Piano & Organ Company in about 1938. This piano has 73 notes rather than 88 notes, but is otherwise a normal, conventional piano in every way. Wurlitzer built only a limited number of these little pianos during the 30s and 40s era. They were designed for smaller homes and apartments of the era, making them ideal for people with limited space for a baby grand. Sadly, there are very few of these little pianos left in existence today. They are very rare and desirable among collectors and musicians alike. When tuned to standard concert pitch, it can be used as a normal piano for daily use. It has an impressive tone for its small size! The HIGH GLOSS WHITE finish makes for an exciting focal point in any home! $5000
