Autumn Greetings to all KYC Members and Friends:
Another boating season is nearly over, our boats are coming out of the water and the dock is filling up. Some of us are still hoping for a few more hours on the water though. Thanks to Doug, his faithful crew, and all who show up every Saturday to remove masts, haul out boats and get both safely stored away for the long winter months.
As we move through these fall days and nights, we are grateful to Jim Strouf and his house committee for preparing our building for our new meeting room furnace and air conditioner. Thanks for all the work to make it happen. It will be nice to have heat again and, of course, cool air next summer.
We have several upcoming events that I invite everyone to attend. On Saturday, October 27th, the activities committee has planned our annual Halloween Party complete with costume and pumpkin carving contests. Good luck to all who compete. Good food and drinks will be available so don’t miss this costume optional fun night beginning at 6:00pm.
November 10thwe will see our club transformed as we gather for the Past Commodore’s and Installation Dinner. This is always a great evening of good conversation, laughter and celebration as we honor our Past Commodores and install and welcome our KYC and KCSC Boards for the coming year. I hope you will join Joyce and me for this special night!
Finally, our Holiday Party will be held on December 8thand this will be a private party as we close our club to the public for the night. Last year’s Holiday Party was so much fun and we look forward to another great party hosted by the activities committee.
Watch Club Express for invitations and details about each of these three upcoming events in the days ahead. Come and join the fun. I hope to see many of our new members there.
At the City of Kenosha Common Council meeting last Monday night, Past Commodores Virginia and Tom Hartley presented a check on be half of the KYC to the City Life Rings Fund for $1,000 which was welcomed with applause. A big “thank you to both of them for representing us at this meeting and to Virginia for initiating and implementing our donations fund. Thank you to everyone who made a donation.
Many members are asking, “What about our own docks?” So, the KYC Board is responding to that inquiry. Watch for details on our website in the weeks ahead about how to donate to life rings for our own docks.
Thanks to all who are making a special effort to stop by our bar and restaurant during this slower season. It can make a big difference!
Fair Winds and see you around the club,
