Well here we are in February and although it is a short month it seems painfully long if you’re a boat owner. We have a few events planned for the club this month starting with our Super Bowl pregame on the 2nd starting around 12pm. Food will be provided for a $5 charge. Please feel free to bring a creation of your own. Also, our annual fishing awards dinner will be held on March 14th at 7pm. Tickets will be available behind the bar. Once again, I ask that members make an effort to support the club during the winter months. It has been very quiet and it would be nice to see a few more members stopping in.
Just a reminder that dues for electric, storage and work hour should have been received by now and in fact are due. If you happen to be one of those members that did not receive a bill or have not paid yet, I encourage you to get your payment to the club as soon as possible to avoid a 20% late fee. Failure to receive a bill does not exempt you from payment. Please contact the financial manager by email if you have questions. Your cooperation is much appreciated.
We are always looking for new members and I encourage the membership to bring family and friends to any of our functions and perhaps entice them to become members as well.
Our next General Body meeting is on February 25th of this month. Please try to attend!
Happy New year to All,

The Children's Christmas party had over 50 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's.
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.
I would like to Thank Larissa Mulhull for all her help and thanks to our great elves Jordan & Marissa. .
A big thank you to Billy who did a great job on cooking the food for the kids. Thanks Billy.

FROM THE YARD/REGARDING 2019 HAUL. I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe boating season and we all hope for those last few great fall days to take that last trip. In the meantime we are planning our 2019 haul and hopefully will be able to accommodate all of our members. The following are just some reminders of the yard procedure for hauling. ALL BOATS hauled must fill out a haul form. They are available at the bar. COMMUNICATION is the key to a successful haul for everyone. The Yardmaster or Committee member must be contacted before a boat is positioned in the yard. We do not store blocks or stands at the club and there is absolutely NO POWER WASHING of any kind in the yard. Contact number for Yardmaster is 203 676 3618. If you text please leave your name. Also, if your trailer was stored in the yard and you find an orange spray painted tag on the tongue of your trailer, please contact me ASAP to avoid any fines or penalties. As always, thanks for your cooperation regarding these issues.
Bob Cole, Yardmaster
Thank you to Jim McPadden, Mike Eaton and Max Torri for stepping up to run for the Board. Our Club is all about people who want to be involved to keep things moving forward.
Good & Welfare
2020 - Our new year and new decade is off and running. Not quite sure what direction she is running in, but Mother Nature has been relatively kind and has given us milder weather. Personally I wouldn’t mind an early spring and a nice long summer with lots of boating.
Our sympathy is extended Scott Hughes and his family on the loss of his mother. We also express our sympathy to Nettie Gianatasio on the passing of her mom. Please continue to keep our friends that have fallen on hard times or illness in your thoughts.
If you have any news for Good & Welfare, please contact me at 203-394-7122 or email@example.com. Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous & Blessed New Year!!
Good & Welfare Chairman
