And all I ask is a tall ship and stars to steer her by:
And the wheel's kick and the winds song and the white sails shaking,
And the gray mist on the seas face, and the grey dawn breaking.

The Children's Easter Party was great. 33 children attended. They loved the Critter lady with all her animals. The Easter Bunny was there and they had a fun Easter egg hunt. Jon Hinckley was there to take pictures of the kids with the Easter Bunny. Thanks Jon. The kids also made picture frames to put their photo in. Thanks to all the ladies that helped with the event and also Paul McMillian for his donation to the party.
Opening day was picture perfect with beautiful weather and a large turnout. I would like to thank Phyllis for all the beautiful flowers on the deck and for the opening day flowers. (P.S.) If you see that they need water please water the flowers. I would like to thank Pat, Jean, Laney, Tammy, Lisa and Nichole for all their hard work making all the salads for opening day. they where delicious.

Spring is here and there has been a lot of activity in the yard; covers coming off, boat bottoms being painted & some boats are in the water. It’s a great time to be a boater.
As we move through spring, we will be celebrating the academic achievements of our MYC children. If you know of any kids graduating this year or receiving some sort of academic award, (college, high school, middle, etc…) please let me know so we can wish them congratulations. I’m excited to say that we have some impressive ones this newsletter.
Congratulations to Reagan Walker. Reagan graduated from Sacred Heart University with a Masters in Education.
Congratulations to Ryan Walker who was elected to The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi; the nation’s oldest and most selective honor society for all academic disciplines.
