Many thanks to all those members who shared a portion of their holiday spirit with the rest of us. There were so many…
A special thanks to RC Rob and Bev Bruins for the wonderful work they and their helpers did in decorating the club house. I don’t ever remember it looking so beautiful. The Christmas Tree Trimming Party and much of the Lighted Boat Parade also fell under their purview, and in all cases I’ve heard nothing but great comments on the fabulous job they did this year. After so much work I’m sure they’re ready for a break…
Captain Mona Lisa Ryan and committee also did a fine job with the Special People’s Cruise. This is no small undertaking. She managed a number of last minute transportation issues to ensure the “Special People” of Kitsap County were able to enjoy their traditional winter cruise from the BYC and an opportunity to talk with Santa on the radio and to greet him on the gangway. Nice job Mona Lisa!
Denise and I would personally like to thank all those Executive Committee members, the flag officers, and their spouses who were able to serve on the BYC Christmas Dinner committee. We extend our special thanks to Al, Joanne, and David Gonzalez who headed up our galley operations to serve over 80 people this year. The food was plentiful, delicious, and we all had a magnificent time.
As the holiday season turns over, we start preparing for our infamous Heavy Weather event. Our next planning session will be at the club on Tuesday, January 4th at 1830. This is an “all hands on deck” event so please plan on being there.
Denise and I wish you a very Happy New Year!
Safe Boating to All,
Commodore John and Denise Rosendale
