I write to you with some sad news. Our longtime member, Gene LaFaunce, passed away this morning at the age of 97. For those new members who didn’t know Gene, he was still playing at the age of 95 . . . AMAZING, right? When Gene was in the water, it was truly an inspiration for all of us members. Due to Covid and the closure of our facilities, Gene and Bobbi (Gene's wife) moved out of the area to an assisted living facility quite some time ago.
Gene was a gentleman and dedicated volleyball player. He and his wife would attend our social events, always with a warm greeting and smile. We have missed Gene and his wife. And the club just hasn’t seemed quite the same without our Gene.
This morning Mel sent me a recent video of Gene, in which he sent us a sweet message and cheer for our Jessup Tournament. The tournament was unfortunately cancelled but will be rescheduled at a later date. Please click on the links to watch Gene’s message to us all.
I am very thankful for you all and for the amazing club that we are blessed to experience in our beautiful community. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day giving thanks for all that we cherish each day.
