Beautification Help Beautify and Update our Club! - Burgee Bar Fund Raising Update We had a great response as Members rose to meet Chairman Dave’s “$30,000 Challenge.” As you recall, Dave Everitt pledged to match the first $30,000 donated for our Summer Renovation, and thanks to some very giving Members, we will be receiving all of the matching funds from our generous Chairman. But there is more to do and if you have not yet participated, we still need your support. Like any remodeling project, what first appears to be required soon expands into much more. For example, as we looked into restoration of our marble floors, we discovered that the stairs need to be replaced as well. So the need for donations continues. Only 10% of our entire membership has donated thus far. So I am calling on the rest of you to pitch in to help restore our Club. Let’s make it truly a team effort. Not everyone is in a position to donate in the thousands or in the hundreds. But if you could just do what makes sense for you—even if it is just $20 or $50, I’d love to see everyone get some skin in the game. When you donate, you can take pride when you see the beautiful improvements and upgrades next Fall, knowing that you were a part of making that happen! We are actively getting proposals and pricing for the upgrades and repairs, and will share more about specifics as the plans are agreed to. We have been listening to suggestions from Members, and of course your suggestion will carry more weight if you actually put something in the Fund to help make it happen! Your donation can take many forms. A simple check, a credit card or have an amount put on your club bill one time or each month. With the slower season coming, this would be an excellent time to add a monthly stipend to your bill and not even miss it. Here is a link to the Form that is needed for your donations. If you have any questions about the project reach out to me via email at jmckeown@mgscientific.com or my mobile at 847.812.8386 or catch me hanging around the Burgee Bar. Thanks, Jim McKeown - Mariner Fund Chair
