The Month is November - the time is Thanksgiving. A time to gather, share and remember. I invite you to do all of the above with your Bremerton Yacht Club family and friends. We kick off the Holiday Season with a Club decorating Party Sunday November 27th at 11:00am. We will meet to decorate and Pizza will be served at 12:00 Noon. Just around the corner on December 2nd at 6:00pm we will gather again for a “Red and Green” Potluck and Tree trimming Party. We will bring the main dish and provide Holiday beverages. Bring your favorite red or green dish to share. It should be a fun and festive time. Sign up at the club, call or email so you can join us. As we do every year we will have a Food drive to provide non-perishable food to those in need. Please bring something to put in the Food Drive Box, soon to be located in the common area at the club. Your generosity is appreciated.

Mark Miller and his committee are doing a fantastic job getting ready for the Special Peoples Cruise this year. I am honored to be a part of this event and I hope as many of you as possible can take part. Please contact Mark as soon as you can, to participate. Your time and caring are truly appreciated.

Next on the Holiday agenda are the Lighted Boat Parades, December 16th, and 17th. This event really symbolizes the Holidays for many residents in Kitsap County and I want to give a big thank you to all of you working away getting ready for these wonderful nights. This year we will be having Hot Buttered Rum for both nights, thanks to Sylvia Wilson and Marva McWaid and her crew.

A special thank you to Captain Andy and first mate Nancy Kupp for putting on a fabulous New Members Night and Wine Tasting November 11th. It was great to enjoy live music (thanks Nancy) and to get acquainted with new members. The Sunday Breakfast November 13th was another great Fall event and thank you to Captain Dan Robinson, first mate Diane and crew. We enjoyed your company during another scrumptious Breakfast.

Meanwhile we will be getting ready to serve you - our wonderful members dinner at the 19th Annual Christmas Dinner December 11th. As the Holidays draw near, I want to wish you and your family the very best. There is much to be thankful for this fine year and I will be even more thankful if you sign up for some Holiday events so we can reminisce about the fun we have had throughout the year and create some new memories for years to come.
