May 2019 Newsletter



Dear Members,


May is upon us and activity at the Club is on the rise.


I want to thank several members who came out on Easter Saturday, April 20th, to help spruce up the Club. Much was accomplished including replacing ceiling tiles, weeding gardens, planting flowers, prepping the Gazebo, power washing the exterior, etc. The volunteers include Jim Brady, Julie Gilberto-Brady, Trevor Carouge, Bill Clyde, Kelly Crowe, Chuck Ellis, Bob Gallagher, Tom Hannan, Stephanie Hillebrand, Al Izzarone, Sue Jones, Tom Kranz, Paul Lewis, Lucia Rojas Smith, Al Shinn, Larry Skinner and Jeff Taylor. Also, a special thanks to Rear Commodore Cheryl Hannan for organizing the day. Well done to all!

Thank you also to Patti Hopkins for the lovely flowers that graced our lounge tables for our Easter Day brunch.

For the boaters among us the water to the docks is now on. Thank you to Fleet Captain Bill Clyde for making the necessary repairs so the water could be turned on in a timely fashion.

Much is happening during the month of May….


Saturday, May 4th- Cinco de Mayo celebration starting at 6pm with a fiesta buffet and Colby Sard for entertainment.

The ESSA races will officially begin on Wednesday, May 8th and will take place every Wednesday during the sailing season. One change this year is the course has been altered so the finish line will be directly out in front of the Club. Please come out and enjoy the friendly competition while enjoying a drink and dinner.

On May 12th, Mother’s Day, we will offer our annual Mother’s Day Brunch.

At 5:00pm on May 18th we will host our Commissioning Day ceremony, the official opening to our summer season. Since this is also the day of the Preakness race, the Commissioning Day ceremony will be followed by a Preakness party with Preakness themed drinks, food and plenty of black eyed susan flowers. Post time is 6:20pm with the race starting at 6:48pm.

Saturday, May 25th- Boaters Safety Check from 9am-noon followed by a Flare Demonstration at 1pm.

The Gazebo will officially open on May 26th at 4pm with Bobby Reed as our entertainment.


I have attached below a nice Spinsheet article on our Regatta (July 19th-21st) for those looking for more information on this event.


Finally, Chef Gregory released his new summer menu last Tuesday to a large crowd in the Lounge. If you haven’t already, please make dinner reservations and sample some of the Chef’s new creations along with favorites from the prior menu.
