Dear Lakefront Yacht Club Members,
Welcome to the 2019 Yacht Club season!! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and was able to spend time with people that are important in your lives. It is officially time to kick off our season even though we are a few months away from getting back into the water. We have officially launched our new website, this will be a work in progress for a while. We have also announced new directors for our board, Laurie Turner, Bob Barger, and Jeremy Jett have been nominated and accepted positions for the 2019 season.
One of my main goals for the season is to get more involvement of our members, in order to improve the quality of our events. The board has come up with a great program of activities for the year, but we need some help in implementing the different activities. There are multiple committees that we are asking for volunteers for which are as follows:
Activities committee / kids activities
o Help plan and put on the various functions through the season. We are also looking at adding a poker or card night at the club through the summer
o Find and plan entertainment for the activities that are scheduled
o Help out cooking and preparing food and setting up for dinners
Social media/web page/newsletter committee
o Add pictures and post events on our new webpage and Facebook page as well as develop a monthly newsletter
o Select apparel for members to be able to purchase
o Look at ways to encourage new members to join
o Look at our constitution as well as the rules we are governed by to improve the way we do business
One thing that I understand is that when you come to the lake to boat, you are here to relax and the last thing I want is to change that. Most of these committees work can be done through phone and e mail conversations. If you would like to get involved and work with some great people I encourage you to sign up to be on a committee. If you have interest please e mail the club at or myself at .
Before I close, I would like to thank Jim and Fran Cox for all of their hard work making the past two years great. They have helped increase membership and involvement throughout the club. I hope that we can continue on the success that they have started. I am excited to announce that Jim is going to continue to work with the board as our treasurer.
I look forward to working with everyone in 2019 and continuing building a club that everyone can be proud to be a member of. Have a great winter and see you in the spring!!
