Commodore's Emails

May 13, 2024  6:29 AM

Good morning,
As we approach mid-May, preparations for club opening are ramping up.  Welcome to many new members who have joined since my last email.  We are glad to have you and look forward to welcoming you to the club.  As we get closer to the official opening there will be more frequent communications to keep you up to date.
There has been a lot of great energy from members to get ready for the season.  From a terrific turnout for clean up day, plans for a website update, ideas for new social activities, dock building and gardening, things are starting to come together. 

Dock Rebuild
The work on the docks is coming along well.  We have had several very dedicated members putting in hundreds of hours to build the new docks.  Thank you to everyone who has dedicated their time and talent to make this important project come to fruition.  It will be a few more intense weeks to complete the work and we appreciate everyone's patience and cooperation until we reach the finish line.

Parking
Until the work on the docks is complete, please refrain from parking in the main parking lot.  Please park along the circle at the entrance of the club.  There are many tools, pieces of decking, nails, etc. that we want to make sure are cleared from the parking area before we start using it.  Also, we want to make sure we are leaving the necessary space for the crew to work on the docks at all times.

Tennis and racquet sports
There is a specific email list for racquet sports activities and socials.  If you would like to be included on that list, please email Ben Thompson at bfthompson1956@gmail.com to be added. An updated list of activities will be sent in the next couple of weeks.

The Social Committee will be having a meeting to finalize their plans for the summer and we also have a group working on a new playground structure.  More details will be sent out soon.  As always, you have ideas or talents to share, please be in touch!

Warm regards,
Sara English

Good afternoon,
Well, we sure have high hopes for great summer weather after all these April showers.  Welcome to many new members and to all of our returning members.  A special thank you to all returning members who paid their dues on time.  It is a great help as we work on setting up the club for the season.

Clean up day!
Next Saturday, April 20 there will be a member clean up day from 9am-12pm.  Please come help get the grounds and buildings into shape in order for us to start using them regularly.  We will be raking, trimming branches, weeding flower beds, cleaning out the pool, sweeping buildings and more.  We welcome anyone who is able to help, including small people who may want to join in.  Please bring rakes, trimmers and gloves.   

Staff
We are still hiring staff for the summer.  The Steward (Club Manager) position is still open if you know any qualified candidates to manage the staff and operations of the club.  Please have anyone interested fill out the application on the website.  There will also be lifeguard, grounds and gate positions available.  We will try to finalize all of the positions by mid May.

We look forward to seeing many of you next Saturday.  Additional updates on progress at the club will be sent in the coming weeks. As always, if you have ideas or talents to share, please be in touch with a member of the Board.

Best regards,
Sara English

Happy 2024!


As you may have seen, the groundhog promised us an early spring and we are taking him at his word.  Plans and work have already begun to make 2024 a great season at the club.

Welcome letters and invoices were sent to all 2023 members by snail mail last week (February 1).  You should have received it by now.  Please note, Boater dues must be postmarked by March 1 and all other members must have their payment postmarked by April 1.  There is a new fee structure for late fees which is outlined in the letter and on the invoice that was sent.  Please familiarize yourself with the new policy. If you know you will not be returning to the club this summer, please let us know so we can plan accordingly.

The Board is actively looking for volunteers to help with several projects including social media, a small building project and a member directory. If you have time and talent to share, please let me know and I will put you in touch with the relevant committee.

We are actively accepting new members to the club.  Please spread the word to your family and friends and let them know the 2024 application is available on the website.  We would love to receive their applications and welcome them this season. 

Looking forward to seeing you back at the club in the coming months.  Stay tuned for opportunities to volunteer for clean up day and other projects to get the club up and running.

Warm regards,
Sara
