The yard master and his crew did a great job once again with placement of the boats in the yard and I thank the membership for their cooperation. I ask again that the members that have trailers in the yard to please keep them in working and safe condition so things can continue to run smoothly.
Our work hour period for 2018 is now over and I would like to thank all the members who donated their time, tools and material to the many projects we accomplished this year in true club spirit.
Our Veterans Day celebration was a great event attended by over 100 members and non-members alike and it continues to grow each year. As you know I do not like to mention individuals by name at the risk of forgetting someone, but many thanks to our very own “Billy the Cook” for preparing the food. Many thanks as well to the members that helped set up for Veterans Day and the members that helped clean up after the ceremonies were over. Without help from our members these events would be impossible to conduct.
Please come down and support your club for the Christmas gathering on December 23rd starting at 2pm. Stop or call the club for details. We are also planning a gathering on New Year's Day to celebrate the New Year. I’ll keep you posted.
A very special Thank You to the Ladies for an awesome Children's Christmas Party once again this year. What a great event!
Please make an effort to be involved and continue to support your club during the winter months.

The Children's Christmas party had over 60 children attending. They all had a great time with crafts, watching Santa come in by Police boat and of course getting presents from Santa and his Elves.
The photo booth was also a great success. Thanks to Jon Hinckley for putting these memories on film.
I would like to thank the ladies of the auxiliary and the club members who took time out of their busy schedules on Saturday to help set up and clean up after our kids' Christmas party. I appreciate all that were there and I thank you very much.
A big thank you to Billy who did a great job on cooking the food for the kids. Thanks Billy.
