FALLBROOK – The only in-person Fallbrook Encore Club event this past season became a festive celebration of lockdown liberation. There were lots of big smiles, hugs and laughter. It had been a very long time since everyone had an opportunity to be together. Since Encore Club is a social club, it was a tough year. Previous activities largely had to be held on Zoom, but members are not easily daunted!

Encore welcomed, as their guests, nine new members "flying up" from Fallbrook Newcomers Club. Many of the husbands also attended and provided wonderful entertainment, Luau-style. Allen Sargent graciously came as a guest guitarist joined by Hal Johnson on the mandolin. The costumes, songs and antics kept everyone laughing. They were so popular that they may need to repeat as performers on a future occasion.

Blanca Perla, Sharon Mann, Liz Incledon, and Joanne Jackson celebrate the first opportunity for the Encore club to meet up all together since the pandemic began.

The luncheon was held at Pala Mesa Resort in June and was sold out early. This closed out this season on a happy note and saw membership up in spite of the limitations of the past year. Club members look forward to the upcoming season beginning in September. The first monthly coffee meeting will be held Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1620 S. Stagecoach Lane.

These monthly meetings occur the first Tuesday of each month and are a combination of social time and business. This is also a welcome opportunity to sign up for upcoming activities such as games, outings, meals together, and parties.

Membership is open to those living in the Fallbrook, Bonsall, DeLuz and Rainbow communities and new members are welcome at any time. Those interested may contact Ardis Duhachek, 612-309-0099, membership chair, or go to
