Reports from the Bridge

Sep 2014

I would like to start out with a BIG Thank You to our membership! Because of you, we had a very successful Picnic in the Park Season. We had lots of enjoyable fellowship, along with good food. Also, thank you to all of our members that stepped up as Picnic Chairs and Committee Members. It is a lot of work made much easier with the help of many hands. With regards to the Pig Roast, thank you to: PC Don & Donna Park, Gene & Martha Paxton, XXX Mona-Lisa & Mike Ryan, Laurie Van Ruden, Kevin Pisani and any others I may have missed. Thinking ahead to the Salmon Bake, please remember to sign up early… BUT if you put your name(s) down and something comes up to where you are unable to attend, please let the Chair know. When it comes time to purchase items, this count is extremely important and everyone’s help is greatly appreciated.

To follow up on VC Mike Murray’s mention of our upcoming JO Ball (Jr Officer Ball), the membership is encouraged to come celebrate with us and the Grand 14. Start planning now on your costumes. With the theme being 50 Years of James Bond there is a lot of room for options.

In closing a quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn”.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our events and around the Club,

Dan Saikkonen
Rear Commodore
