“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past”

F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby

We glide into Fall, beginning in the heat of Summer and ending on the cool, even chilly winds of the coming of October.  Perhaps, this month is a harbinger of the life to come.  As the Delta mutation of the Covid virus spreads through the country on a plague of the unvaccinated, (and, to a lesser degree, bowing some of the vaccinate), we are all hanging on the precipice of the unknown and weighing which path is the correct trail to follow.

We have had a glorious and event-filled two months of our new BNC year!  But…lurking before us is an unknown future-past!  As Nick tells us, at the conclusion of The Great Gatsby, we shall, howeverbeat on, boats against the current”.  

We have a September 
full of so much for us to enjoy!

There will still be hiking and biking  There will still be Member Mingles and Craft Beer Night and Dining Out.  There will still be book club and art class and MahJongg.  A number of us will enjoy a fabulous weekend at Glenwood Springs and don’t miss a terrific Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social to close out the summer and welcome Fall!

Perhaps we will be “borne back ceaselessly into the past”…..But, not for now, at least!  Have a most memorable and fun month with all of our friends in BNC!!

Jay Shaplow, BNC President
