Shawn McCauley presented the Club with a towel made up like the sign that was on the back of their military vehicles in Iraq.  A good time was had by all.  The last of the group departed around 1 am.

45th Anniversary weekend

 1964  45th shirt smWe were young. Most of us were still in high school. We lived in and around the City of Saint Louis, in neighborhoods such as Walnut Park and Baden. We planned to go to college or go to work after graduation and few of us thought about what we would be doing in the year 2009. 

And in 1964, we became Gluttons. No one had any idea that when we bought and wore our Glutton Sweatshirts; we began something that would last for 45 years.

The Glutton “membership” list, like the Glutton ClubHouse, has undergone many changes in 45 years. Some of our current active members weren’t born in 1964. Most have never been in the Club at 5611 Riverview, or know there was Columbia (Missouri) Branch. Some of us were at the Gluttons Club as recent as last week, some haven’t been there in years, if at all.

But we are all Gluttons, and each of us is a part of the 45-year friendship that makes the Gluttons, perhaps, the most unique organization any of us knows.

We have the opportunity over Memorial Day Weekend, 2009, to once again join together and be Gluttons. If you take a minute or two, and listen, you will hear a little voice: your inner-Glutton. He’s still there, and he knows that you should be at one, or all, of the 45th Anniversary events.

We hope to see you there.

2009  We’re older now and wiser (we think).  We’ve come along way in forty-five years.  A lot of water had gone under the bridge as have a few of our members. 

We invite you to join us once again and relive some of those memories from the glorious days of yesteryear, whether they’re from the old Club on Riverview or the opulent World Headquarters of the International Brotherhood of Gluttons on Jerries Lane in Redman Acres.

We’ve made a lot of improvements in the last few months and hope you will be on hand to see them and help us celebrate 45 years of Gluttony.

Another party – another storm

About 20 people atteneded the first Happy Hour party of the summer at the Club last night.  Glen grilled up a big batch of wings and Dan Sucich grilled some vegetables.  Lots of delicious finger foods were enjoyed by all. The Gluttons don’t let a little storm dampen their spirits.

Happy Hour party Friday evening

Happy HourJoin the Gluttons Friday night (May 30th) for the first Happy Hour party of the year.  The plan is to start around 6 pm, but won’t truly get started until YOU get there.

Bring your own drinks.  The Club will provide some chicken wings and chips.

Bring along your swimsuit and brave the cool water.  

Let’s party Rain or Shine!  Well… not too much shine after dark.  So let’s say Rain or No Rain!

PIGNIC spirit not dampened by weather

Jew flagAbout seventy-five people attended the Glutton Memorial Day Pignic.  They didn’t let the damp weather dampen their spirits. 

Dan Sucich spent half the day cooking some of the most scrumptious food we’ve had at the Club.  The man knows how to cook… under the remote supervision of Gary Rowberry of course.  (Rowberry didn’t even get there until 3 pm and Dan still did a great job.)

Donnie McGuire was the only Glutton from out of town to show up with brother Dan and Momma McGuire.

It’s PIGNIC time

Well, the meterologists have finally come to their senses and admitted there’s a chance for rain Sunday.  We could have told them that… buy they didn’t want our expertise.

Forecast

20% huh?   More like 20% chance it WON’T rain.

Anyway, the cooking will begin early.  So get there early and get your money’s worth. 

Fun Food and Friends.  

 To quote an old Glutton…. 
                 
 “This must be why we’re here.”

Perfect weather predicted for Memorial Day PIGNIC

Little do the meterologists know about the weather on Memorial Day Sunday.  They’re forecasting clear skies and temps in the low 80’s.  Perfect weather for a picnic.   Of course, any weather is perfect weather for the Glutton Memorial Day PIGNIC.  This will be the 38th Glutton Memorial Day PIGNIC held at the Club.

It all begins this Sunday, May 25th as the Gluttons gather for the first official party of the summer.  The PIGNIC kicks off the summer season at the Club.

Poolready1

The pool is ready, though a tad cool.  August Green is gone, replaced by Sparkling Blue.  We’ll have to wait to see how long that lasts.

The fare for the PIGNIC is the usul… thick, juicy pork steaks, chicken, hot dogs, burgers, corn on the cob, potato salad, slaw and all the trimmings. 

Cost for the day is $15 for adults, $5 for kids from 6 to 20 and Free for kids 5 and under.   Please let Byrd know if you plan to attend.  (314–578–2926)

Get there early and make it an all day affair.   Everyone is welcome.  Bring a friend.  More info here.

Bowling at the Corner Bar

Bowling08cA slightly hungover crowd attended the 3rd annual Glutton Bowling at the Corner Bar on Saturday night. 

Several of the attendees had partied hardy into the wee hours of Saturday after the membership meeting.  Then with Club clean-up most of the day Saturday, they were dragging a little Saturday night.  But that didn’t stop them from having fun.
