After a fun and exciting Centennial year, the Entertainment Committee had a lot do to
ensure an equally exciting year filled with fun events for our membership to enjoy.  The
Annual Oyster Roast continues to be a member favorite, hosting nearly 500 attendees
each year. Our holiday events such a Breakfast with Santa and Traditional Christmas
provide holiday merriment for our members young and old. As in the past, the New
Year’s Eve Celebration was a big hit.  Members and their guests dressed in black tie
to ring in 2017 with Breaking Brad.  Our Second Annual Kentucky Derby Party was a
success as was our first of its kind “Low Country Boil” on the West Lawn as part of the
Men’s Member-Guest Golf Tournament. Members got crafty during our Paint & Sip
nights and our Fourth of July Carnival was a treat for our PACC families.  

The fall brought several new entertainment options such as our Indian Summer Party,
featuring a full menu of Chef Benson’s smoke creations, and our first ever Craft Beer
Festival and the unveiling of the PACC’s very own 1916 IPA. We owe a special thank you
to Back Bay Brewing Company for developing this brew for our membership.
Breakers Boulevard and the Grillin’ and Chillin’ Friday night concerts by our Member
bands continue to be a huge hit during the summer months. Dog Jaw, Dr. Bob and the
Burning Desires, Restless Natives and Nine Mile Skid are always entertaining and draw a
big crowd.  We are really appreciative to all of the Members of these bands for spending
their Friday nights entertaining other Members and their guests. Many thanks of course
go to Grey Martin who is responsible for organizing and bringing these bands to the
Boulevard. Mardy stays busy planning fun events at Breakers like wine tastings on the
Boulevard, our first Hawaiian Luau with fire dancers and our Annual Chili Cook-Off, just
to name a few.
If you did not have a chance to enjoy a PACC event this year, please join us soon. We
look forward to making memories with you.

I am pleased to report that it has been another popular and successful year at
the Lifestyles Fitness & Wellness Center.  The usage of the facility continues to be
at all-time highs and private group class participation has been tremendous. The
center hosted several multi-trainer holiday workouts over the year and our 3rd
Annual Mind-Body Open House continues to grow and evolve with new offerings
for everyone to enjoy.

Over the past year, we have invested more than $35,000 in new and enhanced
equipment. If you haven’t been to the facility lately, please stop by to try out some
of the new aerobic equipment. Some of our latest additions include a power mill
stair machine and a new treadmill.

We have seen our personal training program grow as our trainers have earned
trust with our membership, training for a variety of groups to include fitness
beginners, those interested in weight loss, post-rehab, tennis and golf-specific
training, sports conditioning, youth and seniors. In our trainers we value
experience, continuing education and attentiveness to the Members and their
concerns. Our trainers take great pride in their clients, are quick to reinforce their
successes and make the gym something our Members look forward to and enjoy.
Massage therapy has  also continued to grow as we emphasize recovery and
self-care to our members. We hope to add a third massage/myofascial release
therapist next year.

A special thanks to the committed professionals we have operating and
conducting our classes and to this year’s committee for all of their support. It’s
been an honor to chair this committee for the past three years.



Congratulations to this year’s champions!

While some faces on the food and beverage team may not be new, they
took on new roles this year. Upon the departure of Mimi Wormeley and an
extensive outside search, Emily Rehmert was promoted to the position of
banquet manager. Emily has been a member of the PACC team since 2011
when she was hired as a food runner. From there, she served as a banquet
server, bartender, banquet captain and dining room supervisor before landing
in her current role. She hit the ground running and has been instrumental in
the success of Club events this year.

John “JT” Garczynski is another familiar face that you’ll be seeing more of at
the Club. After serving the PACC family well for six years, JT was promoted
to dining room supervisor. In addition to his Level I Sommelier certification,
JT has earned his Level I Cicerone certification and has been a key player in
expanding our palates and craft beer selection. JT, Steve Layden and Kristen
Bunting continue to expand the Club’s craft beer program. This year, we’ve
expanded our craft beer offerings in-house and, soon after year-end, hosted
our first ever craft beer festival and unveiled our own 1916 IPA, an exclusive
brew for the PACC.

Each month, your House Committee reviews the comment cards submitted
by our membership. It was refreshing and exciting to see the wave of positive
comment cards this year. We thank you for our feedback and praise. Please
keep it coming.

Lastly, I would like to thank the entire food and beverage team for their hard
work and commitment to quality service. There have been a lot of changes this
year and each team member has risen to the challenge of providing personal
attention that is consistently captivating. After all, that’s the PACC way!

Another wonderful summer at the pool has come to a close at the Princess Anne Country ANNUAL REPORT | 2017 232
Club. We had more activities than ever this year. Led by our returning Aquatics Director Brian
Triolet and his pool team, there was hardly ever a dull moment. Youth Activities Coordinator
Katie Lorenz planned a summer filled with fun and games. Tie dye T-shirts, piñatas, corn hole,
rock painting, knockerball and pizza making were just a few of the many activities that kept
our younger members coming back to the pool all season long.

As always, the morning lap swim crew was waiting anxiously for the pool to open in May. We
had a strong start to the Mini Breakers program, filling up three sessions.  For the older
swimmers, our swim team had a particularly strong season. Head Coach Kristen Zielinski
and her assistants, Matt and Andrew, had their hands full with more than 125 swimmers. As
usual, the Breakers had great success in the pool, finishing 3rd at Divisionals and placing 41
swimmers in the All-Star meet. In addition to practices and meets, the coaches also led weekly
stroke clinics and gave countless lessons. The hard work showed off with many personal bests
throughout the season. 

The Dive Team continues to grow and thrive under the leadership of coaches Katie Lorenz
and Molly Cassidy. The Princess Anne continues to have one of the elite dive programs in the
area. As one member told me, the Dive Team is one of the best values at the Club.

In addition to the Swim and Dive Team, the pool hosted a variety of other activities for
members of all ages. Both deep water aerobics and regular water aerobics were a big hit
again this year. The pool hosted three dive-in movie nights, the Kids Triathlon and a scavenger
hunt. There was a Thankful Thursday each week where kids made items for people they were
thankful for. The magic show, mermaid breakfast and fire department visit were also popular

The pool is now 25 years old.  Brian and his team continue to put in hard work to make sure
we get the most out of this aging facility.

As we close out 2017 and look forward to 2018, members’ questions, comments and concerns
are valued and appreciated.  I encourage you to reach out to one of the Pool Committee
Members to share your thoughts.

The Princess Anne Youth Program enjoyed another hugely
successful year thanks to our dedicated volunteers and PACC
team. We introduced our packed summer schedule at our first
ever Youth Expo in March, which showcased our Club’s camps,
pool, fitness, golf and tennis programs. The event allowed parents
to register for summer programs on-site resulting in nearly all
programs reaching capacity by day’s end. In addition to the fun
and learning our summer programs and camps provided, they
also focused on giving back with the inclusion of our second
summer of Thankful Thursdays. Filling goodie bags for deployed
military service members, making pillowcases for our friends
at CHKD and treats for the post office were just a few of our
projects. How rewarding it was to see others smile. As always, the
Kids’ Triathlon was a hit, as was the magic show and, of course,
the fire truck visit.  We owe a special thank you to our Youth
Activities Coordinator Katie Lorenz for bringing us a summer filled
with fun events.

Fun at the club isn’t exclusive to the summer. The fall and cooler
temperatures bring hay rides and pumpkin decorating. Last
holiday season was a treat for our families with our Traditional
Christmas, always a well-loved event. SantaFest introduced the
PACC youth to singing Santa, who whipped and nae naed his way
right into their hearts. We look forward to seeing you and your
families at the Princess Anne next year and I thank you for the
opportunity to have served on your Board.

27 ANNUAL REPORT | 2017 Mardy and JT.

This year tracked much like the last, with sales of Chardonnay and Cabernet leading the pack.
That is also a national trend, so we are no different in that regard. Americans love their Cabs and
Chards and they certainly love Pinot Noir. I am watching some interesting patterns in California
that may influence our offerings for next year. As cabernet grape prices have climbed to more
than $7,000 per ton Napa Valley Average (NVA), these fantastic wines can’t help but get more
and more expensive. Vineyard managers are charging more for their services and workers are
tough to get. Many have left the grape industry for the more lucrative “legalized” industries in
California and there were fewer farm workers in general this year. On top of that, we have had
three solid vintages in a row with large yields, inventories are thus growing. We will keep our
eyes peeled for good deals on California grape juice. I am predicting we will see some good
offers at the PACC. It is a good time to be a consumer.

On a side note, we will run a white burgundy next year, my favorite wine. They are brutally tough
to find on any specials list. If you have never tried a wine from Puligny Montrachet or Chassagne
Montrachet, you have not lived. These wines are game changers.

Also, be sure to take a peek at any Spanish wines we offer next year. We had a mind blowing 12
dollar Spanish wine last year; I simply could not believe the quality. Our next releases will all be
stellar; finally, some great affordable Chardonnay and a super crazy deal on a Napa Cabernet.

Cheers!We know what you want and we will keep finding it if we have to taste wine every day. That is
simply how we roll!
