COMMODORE’S NEWSLETTER

JUNE 2017

 

Greetings,

            Thanks to all for making Commissioning Day and the Jr. Sail Fundraiser a huge success!  We raised over $14K for the program and donations are still coming in. There were 161 attendees, great food and music, terrific auction items and auctioneer, George Wittstadt, did a fantastic job.

            Our sailing school was founded in 1949 and has continued to produce some of the best sailors on the Chesapeake Bay. Through the generous donations of the membership and beyond, we can continue this successful tradition.  This year’s classes begin on June 19. Please get in touch with the office if you have someone who would like to sign up.

            The winner of the 50/50 drawing for the “Raise the Roof” campaign was George Breig who received $2850. The remaining balance has been placed in an account specifically created for the capital improvement campaign. It is our hope to raise at least $200K for improvements to our aging facility. Over the coming months we will be introducing other avenues for fundraising.

            The club, gazebo and marina are in full swing! It is a beautiful sight to see our boat slips filling up. The gazebo will be open every Saturday (5-9PM) and Sunday (4-8PM) weather permitting. The hours may be expanded depending on demand. We will have our traditional Father’s Day BBQ with music by Bobby Reed on June 18.

            We have added three new members this month: Harold Genvert sponsored by Ronald Morgan and Tom and Kimberly Scott sponsored by Ken Daniel. Our current membership is 403.

            As a reminder, non member guests from Dorchester and neighboring counties of Talbot, Caroline and Wicomico may only accompany a member up to four times per year. This applies to spouses as well. This does not pertain to clubs and organizations that utilize our facility for meeting purposes.

            Our July Sail Regatta is just around the corner and we need volunteers.  Please get in touch with board member, Bill Clyde, if you are able to help.  We had a very successful regatta in 2016 so let’s keep the ball rolling!

            Especially now that the days are longer, please come out and enjoy the club and our beautiful river!

 

All the best,

Carol Baker-Jones
