Greeting to everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!
With all the city dock work happening on the KYC dock, boat haul out has been very challenging but in the true nature of the KYC, everyone pulled together and all boats are finally out and no one was trapped by the gales of November. Thanks to everyone who helped in any way and to Doug for staying on top of things and working out all the details. What a relief!
Just in time for the cold weather the new meeting room furnace has been installed. It is working great and thank you to Jim Strouf for all his work on this project.
October ended with our annual Halloween Party and everyone had a good time as we enjoyed good food and drinks, good conversations and some very unique costumes. Paul and Bettie Wescott were voted the best dressed! Thanks to our Activities Committee for a great night!
This is a busy time of year for our Activities Committee. The Halloween Party was followed, on November 10th,by our annual Past Commodore’s and Installation Dinner. It turned out to be a great night. The club was beautifully decorated and the restaurant did a good job providing delicious appetizers and a great meal. Thanks to everyone who helped to make this night very special including all who attended. I look forward to working with the 2019 Board and the KCSC in the months ahead.
On Saturday, December 8th, the Committee will go to work one more time as they prepare our annual Holiday Party. This is an event the everyone really enjoys and I invite you to watch for more details about this party which will be arriving soon. We will again collect unwrapped books and toys for Women and Children’s Horizons and the restaurant will provide meat. Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. See you all on December 8that 5:00pm.
But, before our 5:00pm party, we will have our December Member Meeting at 3:30pm. Save the date and time and come by the club at 3:30pm and stay for a fun evening. (Please note that the December Member Meeting, as in the past, has been moved to coordinate with the Holiday Party so those who travel a distance only have to come out one time.
For the first time this year, we are participating in the Lightin’ Up Downtown Event which starts on November 23rdand is offered by Downtown Kenosha. Thanks to all who volunteered to decorate the KYC and to those who provided decorations. You can check out the activities atdowntownkenosha.organd watch for further information from me as well.
Don’t forget to go to our website and sign up to staff our booth at the Chicago Boat Show January 9th– 13th.
Have a good Thanksgiving week and I will see you around the Club,
