Dear WYC members,
I hope that everyone enjoyed a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year celebrating with family & friends!
It is my honor & privilege to serve as Commodore of WYC for 2018. I will do my best to guide us through another great year.
I am sorry I had to start off the year by post-poning the first meeting due to the freezing cold weather conditions; the meeting will be held Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 7:30 PM.
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the new volunteers, Joyce Albrecht, Jon Flynn and Walter Deacon who have stepped up to take on positions to help with the daily operations of our club and of course, I also want to give a special heartfelt thanks to those of you who have volunteered to stay on in your positions, especially the bridge, board and chairperson(s). I am confident with your help and support we will all enjoy an exceptional boating season, weather conditions permitting of course.
This year I have assigned a Board Liaison to each Chairperson position my hope is that this will help with updates at the meetings and communication amongst our membership especially our new members. A list will be posted at the club.
We have a lot of new exciting events planned for this year, 1st on the list is a St Patrick's Day Party with live entertainment by Bob Sylvia on Saturday, March 17 (more details soon) & then there will be a Frank Sinatra Impersonator on Saturday, May 19, a Comedy Night on Saturday, June 16 and a Clam Bake on Saturday, June 23 just to name a few. A calendar of meetings/events will be updated on the respective pages of the website. Our social director, Jane has already secured a lot of “live” entertainment for our summer nights.
We will once again be offering half price discount admission tickets to the New England Boat Show, the dates are Saturday Feb. 10-Feb. 18. WYC will be hosting a booth again this year and volunteers are needed to work shifts at our booth. This is a good way to get in your work hours. Please contact me if you are interested. There will be a brief training session for all the volunteers on Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 7:00 PM, this will be held before the next General Membership which is actually a Social Meeting. I hope to see you on Tuesday, Feb. 6 beginning at 7:30 PM.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
