CMS MEMBER PROFILE – February 2016

This month we are profiling very active CMS Club members Joan and Allen Best. Allen was born in Washington D.C. 66 years ago and Joan was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania 64 years ago. Joan and Allen have been married for ten years and have 3 children and 2 grandkids. They moved to New Smyrna Beach from Delaware where they both worked for Sears. Allen was at Sears for 40 years and Joan for 25 years. In 2008 through 2011 they were New Smyrna Beach snowbirds before moving here permanently in 2012 from Delaware.

They joined the CMS Club in 2011 and soon thereafter, having been successful in Northern District Tournaments, Allen became a State Shuffleboard Amateur. Allen Best also became the CMS Club President in 2014 for a very successful two year term. Allen, through his Presidential term, emphasizing team work, helping create club harmony and connecting with members, interested parties and our local politicians, has helped grow the club membership to 283 persons. Joan manages the Mahjong players on Thursday afternoons from 1:30 pm to around 4 pm. She also assists and plays cribbage on Monday nights at 7 pm. Bill Boyes is thankful to have Joan’s assistance with the SPARC program that is held on Wednesday nights. Our club has been in very good hands over the past two years and its future looks bright.
