Commodore's Comments

commodore flagGreetings!

It sure did not feel like spring on our annual Work Day on Saturday, April 8th, but the chilly weather did not slow down the members that showed up to work. We tackled getting the roof cleaned off, bushes trimmed, flower beds cleaned out, tennis court cleaned, and unwanted pipes sticking up on the playground removed. The members also cleaned all the windows and did some spring cleaning in the kitchen. All the work was completed around noon just in time for some delicious sandwiches and dessert from Nuttall's store. A big thank you to the members who volunteered their time to getting the building and grounds in shape for the upcoming flag raising ceremony.

As the boating season is right around the corner, Fleet Captain Joe Morgan and his crew have been working very hard the last several weekends cleaning and preparing the keel boats. The adult sailing classes will be offered to our members again this year. Please reach out to Joe or Steve Hanson if you would like to sign-up for one of the classes this summer.

The Board has decided to extend the lease as requested by our tenant renting the apartment though the end of June. We are fortunate enough to already have two prospective tenants interested in renting the apartment starting in July. In other board news, Building and Grounds Chairmen Craig Klein and David Brown have been receiving bids to refurbish the decks and replace the screens in the porch. Please contact them if you are available to volunteer your services for these projects.

In closing, please make your reservation for the Flag Raising and the Kentucky Derby Social scheduled for Saturday, May 6th. This club social presents the perfect opportunity for you to invite guests who might be interested in joining the club. See you there!
