From the President of the WRSSAR:

In order to ensure the safety of our older members including our guest of honor, we are POSTPONING (not canceling) the spring Gala at the Shoreby club.  Our goal is to find a date (approx September) when the club and our featured guest of honor are available. 

Check back to this WEBSITE CALENDAR for the latest update.  We will update the Calendar 1st and then attempt to reach out to our members once a new date as been settled. 



            On XXX (5:30pm – 8:30pm), we will be holding a first ever event at the beautiful and exclusive Shoreby Club Mansion in Bratenahl on the shores of Lake Erie.  The theme of the early evening event is to honor the World War II service of Marine corpsman and Silver Star recipient Emory Crowder, a friend of the Western Reserve and a member of the “Greatest Generation.”  Dr. Edward Horvath, former Chief Medical Officer, US Forces Iraq, will introduce Emory and both will offer some brief remarks.

In keeping with the event’s theme, LIVE period music (big band) will be offered.  A silent auction is also anticipated.  The timing of the affair is set to conclude prior to nightfall.

Tickets are $125.00 a person, which includes valet parking, non-alcoholic drinks, and a sit down dinner (cash bar also offered).  Patron tickets at $250.00 are also available.  For more information, please email wrssar.communications@gmail.com  There is a maximum of 70 tickets so buy your tickets early!
