THE PORT: NEWS FROM THE TOP | AUGUST 2021
Summer on the Terrace
The One Hundred Club Terrace is the spot for al fresco dining or cocktails with friends. Our members are loving the new custom-made furniture that brings you right to the edge of our beautiful view of the Piscataqua River and all that is Portsmouth! Please be mindful of the weather as reservations made for the terrace do not guarantee seating inside if the weather turns.
On Friday, August 27, The One Hundred Club will be closed as we celebrate the wedding of Dana Wergren, Managing Director.
Membership Has Its Perks
One of our key Membership amenities, Valet Parking, is in full swing. Enjoy the luxury of pulling up to the front door and letting our valets handle the downtown Portsmouth parking. Please remember that convenient parking for guests is available across the street in the Hanover Garage.

COCKTAIL CONTEST – The Portsmouth Fog!
If becoming a Certified Bourbon Professional wasn’t enough, this Club favorite now wishes to add Mixology Master to his list of credentials. This summer, New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlet is hosting a series of competitions to find the absolute tastiest, most inventive, and out-of-the-box cocktails, and who better to submit an entry than the One Hundred Club’s very own Coby Nevius.
“I knew immediately which drink to submit. The fresh ingredients, a nod to Portsmouth, and the drink’s visual play on our unique weather pattern, makes this beverage a popular summer request at the Clubhouse.”
When asked why he chose to enter, Coby mentioned the winner receives a “Good Living” prize package that includes a state-of-the-art stationary bike, gift certificates, espresso martini machine, athletic wear, and a $3000 donation to the charity of the winner’s choice. Coby added he would like to win the bike to help shed his newly found “Dad bod”.

Voting continues through August 8th.
SHOW & TELL WITH SUE
Sue Crowther, Director of Sales and Marketing
This summer has been a busy Show and Tell season so far! The club has had many membership inquiries and referrals from current members, so I have been giving tours and discussing the benefits of membership to The One Hundred Club. We have welcomed new residents to the Seacoast region, area business owners, individuals added to our current corporate memberships and even some returning members. Welcome to the club!
PORTSMOUTH ARTS COLLECTIVE
In April, the club was instrumental in bringing together the heads of the major arts non-profits in Portsmouth to collaborate in supporting each other and making Portsmouth a major arts tourism destination. The One Hundred Club has provided utilization of the club to the Executive Directors or designated representatives of Prescott Park Arts Festival, The Seacoast Repertory Theater, 3S Arts Space, Portsmouth Music and Arts Center, and The Music Hall.
It has been my pleasure to work with each of these organizations here at the club to identify their specific goals and help them to utilize the club to their best advantage. In turn, I have had the opportunity to tour each venue and see first-hand what a wonderfully diverse arts community we are so lucky to have here in Portsmouth.
Our members have been fortunate to benefit from this collaboration as we continue to present a series of Showcase events from each organization. The first, held in June, featured board members and performers from The Rep in a cocktail reception with musical performances from this season’s upcoming productions. Look for more of these Showcase events from each of our arts organizations through the remainder of the year.
5th Wednesday Roundtable Dinners, a brainchild of the Arts Collective, will bring together the group and invited community and arts leaders from around the region. The hope is that these intimate, no-agenda dinners will spark new and creative ideas to support the entire cultural community of Portsmouth.

SERVICE AT THE TOP
It is with the utmost delight that we share the news of the upcoming nuptials of the One Hundred Club’s Managing Director, Dana Wergen! This August, Dana will be tying the knot with former One Hundred Club chef, Chris Cherim. Although saddened to learn she will be stepping down from her current position at the Club in early September, Dana and Chris have been given the opportunity to fulfill their lifelong dream of pursuing small business ownership. We wish her all the best as she and Chris begin this wonderful new chapter together.
As Dana begins her new adventure, we are happy to announce that Rebecca Sacchetti will take on the role of Event Manager for private social affairs and executive retreats and meetings. Rebecca has been with the Club for almost two years and brings to this new role over twenty years of hospitality, sales and marketing experience. Although she has big shoes to fill, Rebecca truly looks forward to working with you to bring your memorable occasions to fruition. Should you have an inquiry regarding an upcoming date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
