One of the best parts of the day is the early morning first cup of coffee. It is the beginning of a new day, one never experienced. If you then add that to our location in the City, be it on your boat or condo overlooking the lake, you have a slice of paradise. Burnham Park Yacht Club is the diamond in the midst of it all. It puzzles me; however, as to why every boater in our harbor doesn't join our club. I don't think any club could offer much more with all our activities, events, food, cocktails and of course, the pleasure of being able to mingle with all of us.
The fun doesn't stop there. We have a great number of events coming up. The Casino Night, The New Members Dinner and The Commodore's Ball to mention a few. Please get involved and for sure attend.
The 2016/2017 slate of Officers and Board Members have been selected and the list is posted on the official notice bulletin board. Some new faces and new ideas. It should make for another terrific year. Everyone works so hard for the rest of us.
Our last Membership event took place this past Friday, which was a cocktail hour. Something new we tried. It was a great success. We signed up two new members and potentially a third. Thank you to everyone for attending. The place was full. Thank you, Tom O'Connell, for all your efforts and time you have put in regarding Membership and Marketing. We have close to forty new members this year! Well done everyone.
Once again this summer, we had the delightful pleasure of our friends from "across the pond" (Ireland) grace us with their kindness, hard work ethic, smiles and of course that accent. The past weekend was their last for the season. We will make every effort to have them back next year. Such a joy.
I hope everyone is enjoying what has turned out to be one of our better seasons in years. It is such a short season for us anyway, so grab for all the gusto you can.
Hope to see you at the club
