CYC Commodore’s Letter, October 1st, 2020

Greetings Members,


I would like to take a moment to thank some extraordinarily generous Members. For the second time in two years, Jim O’Mara has made a significant donation that allowed the Club to quickly replace a damaged large thermal pane window in the Lounge. Thank you, Jim, for your generous contribution that helped restore our spectacular Choptank River view.


CYC Member Maris Wicker has asked to donate her time and talent by performing for us on Saturday, October 3rd from 5-7 p.m.  A singer and pianist, Maris has presented a cabaret style show at the Dorchester Center for the Arts, where she also was a regular performer at the Second Saturday Artists’ receptions and ran DCA’s monthly ‘Open Mics”.  We think you will enjoy her style; a widely ranging repertoire that will not intrude on your dinner conversations. Reservations required, please!


The Flag and Board are expected to donate their time, but last month, Rear Commodore Bill Clyde went above and beyond by interviewing five possible contractors, in order to fix our roof above the kitchen area. He determined the best company and product for the money, including review of the warranty, with input from the other members of the Flag and Board.  The roof project was completed over four days - smartly done. Thank you, Bill.


Here is where I look to all of you Members to consider a Board of Governors position for 2021. We have several openings since some of our existing Board members’ tenure expires. The duties are not onerous, meetings are held once a month on the second Thursday of each month. We need your time, your talent, and your passion. With capital expenses around every corner of our aging Clubhouse and Marina, we are asking volunteers to step up and work on the Board, or on a committee with Board members. It is time for a more volunteer – driven Club. Please contact Cheryl Hannan, Bill Clyde, or me with any questions or suggestions.


On September 11th, we reopened the Club for indoor dining while continuing outdoor dining on the patio if weather permits. We still require reservations and we need Members to follow CDC and Maryland guidelines to wear masks unless seated at a table to dine and drink. Come join us soon for a menu whose updated specials have just been announced!


We are all so incredibly grateful for your continued support. We could not continue without your advocacy and promotion of Cambridge Yacht Club. Perhaps we can look ahead to less difficult times and circumstances. In fact, we must be steadfast.


Very respectfully yours,


Nancy M. Johnson
