Spring is here and members are starting to show up to work on their boats. Please follow the rules regarding your launch forms and proper insurance coverage. Your insurance bill is not the correct form of “proof of insurance” your declaration page is the copy we need with the Miamogue Yacht Club named as additional insured. If you have contractors working on your vessel in or out of the water it is the boat owners responsibility to ask for proof of insurance as well as naming Miamogue as additional insured. This is for the protection of all members.
We had a very well attended Children’s Easter Party and a great Ladies fish fry this past month. The fish fry was attended by over 150 people and was a wonderful success. We even had a surprise visit from channel 12 news who interviewed several of our members and guests. It was lots of fun! Thanks to all the men and women who helped with these events. Our next event will be Pub Night on April 21 starring the Tony Ferrigno band. Please come down and get involved and support your club!
Billy, our chef, has decided to start providing lunch at the club on a daily basis and is considering doing Friday night dinners as well. He’s been putting out some great food with a lot of variety. It’s up to the membership to make this work!
Last but not least, there still is some confusion regarding our lockers. Please come down and confirm that you are in the right locker keeping in mind that the lockers start at #5 and have been that way for over 10 years!
Next General Body meeting will be held on April 24th at 7pm
NOTICE: General Body Meetings are now scheduled to begin at 19:00 hours (7:00 PM) 4th Tuesday of each month
Sponsoring a new member is a great thing. Go the extra mile and be a mentor to that new member in the 1st year. Make sure that they know what to expect through the year and they have the information they need. The BOG will also be considering having the sponsor speak to the GB on the applicants behalf.
We had a great time at the Children's Easter Party. After pizza, chips and drinks we had a magician who dazzled both the children and parents alike. Then we had a Easter Egg hunt, desert along with pictures with the Easter Bunny and goody-bags. It was a great time for all.
A Big thanks goes out to Phyllis Rega for setting up the Magician, the Easter bunny AKA Nichol, Karie Peterson for taking pictures and Walt for cooking for the Adults at the Easter Party.

And the countdown continues. As I’ve watched my husband get our fishing boat ready to trailer down south for our annual fishing trip, I can’t help but get excited to think that, weather permitting, we’ll be uncovering the boat & getting her ready to float in the next month or so. I know many of you are as anxious as I am.
Also as warmer weather approaches, so does graduation time from college, high school, middle school, etc... If you know of a student from our Miamogue family graduating or has earned an achievement & would like them to be recognized, please reach out to me.
We extend our sympathy to the family of Mario DeGirolamo. Mario was a life member of MYC and passed away peacefully on March 22.
Please continue keep our friends that have been ill or fallen on tough times in your thoughts and prayers.
