November Commodore’s Column

Our October meeting was a very good one—well attended, and the soups and salads were delicious. The speaker from Puget Sound Pilots was very informative. Our thanks go out to the Watch: Dave and Mary Weeding, Sandy and Dick Curtis and Susie and Dale Moses.

Our good weather did not continue for the Chili Cook-off, but we had a good time anyhow. Thanks to Cruise Captains: Beth and Joe Burson and Carl and Sue Sidle.

As I write this the garage sale is collecting a lot of “stuff”. I hope there are people that will spend some money because our scholarship fund needs it. Kudos goes out to Ilona Bell who stepped up as Chairman, when Linda Newland became ill, and all our members who helped out with the set up, pricing and sale day. Also thanks go out to all that brought items for the team to sell.

About the time you get this BW the Crab Feed is happening. Thanks Barb and Paul Hager for making this happen.

By this time you should have also received Rick’s email about the Nominating Committee Slate of Officers for next year. Please plan to attend our November Annual Meeting on November 13, where we will elect our leaders for next year. If you feel like we overlooked you and you would like to serve in one of these positions, you can put your name up at the meeting and run against the nominating committee person.

Don’t forget our delicious annual Crab Feast on Saturday, November 3rd, with a sign-up deadline by October 31.
Happy Harvest!

Vince Verneuil, Commodore
