Thanks to all who came out and shared their food and conversation at the Tree Trimming Potluck. There was plenty of food to go around. The entertainment was outstanding as Wendy McPetres brought approx. 40 choir students from Bremerton's Mountain View Middle School, sharing their talents with Christmas songs.
Again the Skipperettes hosted a fantastic Children's Christmas party on December 1st, and Santa had a great time visiting and handing out gifts to all who attended.
There is still opportunity to add to the Food Donation Box for the Bremerton Food Bank. Many people are in need of our support this time of year and giving locally is so important. There are two boxes marked, one located by the children's Christmas tree and the other under the phone counter located by the club store door.
February 15th thru the 17th Tune-up your Log Racing skills, and get ready for Heavy Weather. Those of you not racing should be ready to volunteer for the many committees that help put this big event on. Sign-up for any of the many jobs that happen in preparation for the weekend and those events during it, i.e., Heavy Weather Timber installation, Fire Watch, Galley, Time keepers are always in demand. Please help make this the best Heavy Weather ever.
A reminder that the January 7th General Meeting is the time to signup for Railway Haul Outs and begin thinking about the coming boating season.
Donna and I would like to take this time to offer our warmest wishes to you and yours for a joyous and safe holiday season. Thank you all for your support and encouragement these past months.
Donald A. Park
