2016 October Commodore’s Column: “Maintain the Sea Watch!”

oct-comm-photoAhoy Fellow Cruisers!

It’s been a good year so far and it isn’t over yet. We still have a number of things on the calendar—not the least of which is the Garage Sale, which is the source of funding for our Scholarship Program. The sale occurs in mid October. Muriel Powers is once again coordinating this effort. If you want to help with the sale or donate items to sell, contact Muriel. Please note that we’ve reached the limit of what we can store in the Clubhouse. If you have items for the sale, you may be asked to hold them until just before the sale.     (see page 11)

The Blake Island Cruise was just successfully completed. Remaining Cruises and Events include the Port Hadlock Bonfire Cruise, Halloween Party, Crab Feast, Bell Harbor Cruise, Holiday Party and Holiday Social. As always, you will be able to sign up for them online.

Finally, the U.S. Navy will soon celebrate its 241st Anniversary. It was established during the Revolutionary War as the Continental Navy on 13 October 1775. The Navy has stood in defense of this nation throughout its history and has included leaders such as Jones, Dewey, Perry, Leahy, King, Nimitz and Halsey. Let’s recognize this important part of our maritime history.
