Upcoming events. The boating season has arrived. All our docks are in the water, the electric is on, as is the water, the restrooms are open, and the service department is busy with work and launches. The marina officially opens May 1, but we will be getting everything in place long before then. We have some upcoming events in May. The weekend of May 8 – 10 is Mother’s Day Weekend. Lakefront will have plants for all the mothers that are at the marina that weekend. Stop into the front office to get your plant. If you wish, we will also plant your gift at the marina so you can see it grow.
The Yacht Club is conducting its Blessing if the Fleet on May 16. If you are interested in participating and getting your boat blessed (can’t hurt), contact the Yacht Club or go to their website, www.lakefrontyachtclub.com, to get further information.
The Lakefront Night at the Races is May 23 and will include dinner and horse racing. As in the past, we will have mint julips, $2 bets, daily doubles, perfectas, and trifectas. You’ll be able to buy and name your own steed. Your horse will be announced as it runs. As the date gets closer, I’ll give you more information. Race night is a great time.
We are hosting the ODNR Ohio Boater Education Course May 30. This is an all-day class necessary for those born after 1982 to operate a boat. The class is only $5 and the Yacht Club will supply lunch that day. The class is limited to 30 people. I’ll get you sign-up information as I get it from ODNR.
That’s just May.
Shrink wrap recycling. Lakefront wants to recycle all shrink wrap. We need your help to do this. All banding must be removed from the shrink wrap as you take it off. The shrink wrap needs to be folded and rolled into a bundle for pick up. The attached information sheet shows how to do all this. Ask us if you need assistance. These bundles will be stored between the storage buildings until picked up by the recycler. Do not throw shrink wrap in the dumpsters. You can throw the banding into the dumpsters. Thanks for your help.
Launch. Remember we need a launch form to schedule your launch. We also need all your storage and service fees paid prior to launching your boat. We will be launching Monday thru Saturday. Call Michelle in service to get scheduled. Service is very busy, so if you need work performed prior to launch, get with them soon so we can get you in the water when you want.
SEE YOU SOON.
