The holiday season is upon us and it will be New Year’s Eve before we know it! Chef Greg has sent out a great menu and would like your selections with your reservations to help dinner service flow more efficiently. Dancing to follow with music by the fabulous “Bobby and Believers” who were a great hit last year!
Election Night drew a wonderful crowd! It is always great to see the club so busy. Your new slate for Flag and Board for 2018 is as follows:

Our membership is currently at 430 strong. Let’s keep it going!
By now you have received your letter regarding the special meeting on Tuesday, December 12 at 5:30PM. The addition of this membership category to our constitution will, in effect, formalize what we are already doing. It is important to do this before year’s end and we will do our best to keep this meeting as brief as possible. It is imperative that we protect ourselves with regard to our IRS compliance. While we realize that this is a busy time of year, please plan to attend.
Thanks to Bob Moffatt, Bill Clyde, Bill Lachenmayr, Jim Burton and Gordon Jones for getting the marina winterized. I would also like to thank PC Bill Collier for loaning us the air compressor!
We had a very nice turnout to decorate the club for the holidays! Thank you Bill and Sue Lachenmayr, Cheryl Hannan, Carol Acree, Sally Jellet, Cheryl Willey, Nancy Johnson, Linda and Tom Kranz and Sue Jones. Thank you, Joan and Donald Johnson, for allowing us to raid your yard for the greenery. Traditionally, we decorate the Sunday after Thanksgiving so mark your calendars for next year. All are welcome to help decorate or donate greens.
Chef Greg is doing a wonderful job and our dinner service has greatly increased. I have received many compliments that are a pleasure to pass on to him!
The “Raise the Roof” Capital Campaign was established this year in order to start building up funds for the eventuality of a new roof. We plan to continue to grow this campaign and hope that, in our next outreach, you will be generous with your contributions.
As this will be the last newsletter that you receive from me as your Commodore, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for the support that you have given to the club and to me. I would also like to thank my Flag and Board as well as the entire staff. It is difficult to believe that 2 years have passed since I was elected. Having been a member of “CYC” for the better part of my life, I am very passionate about the club and recognize how fortunate we are to have this gem! It is a very special place, rich with history and situated on one of the most beautiful tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. Please continue to enjoy the club, help it grow and support your 2018 Flag and Board!
Last but not least, thank you to all who contributed to the Employee Christmas Fund. Your response and generosity was overwhelming!
Best wishes to all for a safe and happy holiday season!
