Welcome to our Newest Members!

John & Debbie Kastner John & Olivia Kastner

Seven Oaks Book Club T he Seven Oaks Book Club meets each month to discuss books on a reading list which is selected by mutual consent of the Book Club members. All members of SOCC are cordially invited to attend.

This month’s selection is … Of Monkey Bridges and Bánh Mì Sandwiches: from Sài Gòn to Texas by Oanh Ngo Usadi

In the aftermath of the Vietnam War, a young girl and her family were exiled from city living in Saigon to the countryside of Vietnam and ultimately escaped to a small town in Texas. Part travelogue, part family drama, part cookbook this quietly affecting immigrant memoir will make you laugh, cry, and hungry all at the same time.

Our next meeting is May 28th at 5:00 pm via ZOOM Please email Diane Levi @ to receive information on joining the meeting.

Even with Food & Beverage Minimums currently being waived, many Seven Oaks members are still taking advantage of our Take Away Menu and we would love to thank all those members who continue to support the Club in any way they can! To provide variety, our menu changes up every couple of weeks! Look for it in our weekly emails, on our website under Dining & Events or under Club Links on the Clubster app!

Please continue to send your items to our Member Services Director Eryn Urban, we would love to feature them in upcoming Club emails and our June newsletter!

"We spent part of our quarantine on our property in the mountains, sitting around a campfire & collecting wildflowers." ~ Jack & Claire Boone

We're paddle boarding in our backyard pool!" ~ The Abby Family

"We are missing our friends and the Club.

We are organizing on steroids! We've typed inventories for our inside and outside freezers (by shelf) and did the same for our pantries and spices. Both Tom and I are cooking - I forbid Tom to make more dessert!!! We have baked bread and are using all our gadgets; air fryer, crock pot, instant pot and sous vide! We are eating well. We try to walk daily and do exercise videos but it is not really mitigating our eating habits! We have had "Happy Hours" on FaceTime, and long visits with relatives in many states on Zoom. We have taken some drives to see wildflowers, and had a picnic sitting in little yellow wildflowers. Of course we are binge watching on Netflix, Hulu and Prime, as well as reading and enjoying the spring weather on our patio. All in all we haven’t had a minute of depression - we are just enjoying our time together. STAY SAFE!" ~ Gwen Spencer

The VanFossens spent a litltle quarantine time on their boat in Channel Islands Harbor.

Tracy gave it a Big Thumbs Up!

"My daddy turned 90 on April 16th. We had to cancel the party we had planned for him so instead we had a drive by parade!! You can click on the video link below to see the news clip. He is a humble veteran, loving father of 6 & all around great guy! He still plays golf weekly." ~ Sharon McBride

The McHenrys are getting in as much golf as they can!

On the Courts

by Dave Krueger, Tennis Director

After many discussions between the Seven Oaks Country Club Board, Kern County Public Health Department and some members of the Kern County Board of Supervisors, the Tennis courts and Pickleball courts are open again! Jonni, Jason and myself are very thankful to all who were involved in making the re-opening happen. Now that we are up and running again, it is very important that players make themselves familiar with and adhere to the Public Health Guidelines for Racquet Sports Play. While the majority of these guidelines are geared more toward Tennis, the same basic rules will apply to Pickleball. If you are unsure about how to apply certain guidleines to Pickleball, please do not hestiate to contact myself, Jonni or Jason.
