Marco Island Yacht Club

Commodore

Summer is here and it’s getting quiet on the Island as well as at Marco Island Yacht Club, or so I’m getting reports. I’m home with family and friends like many of you and I realize how much I miss seeing each of you either at Happy Hour on Friday nights or at some of our great functions that are on the Calendar. In fact, I

continually working towards making MIYC the best place to be on the Island. Speaking of a great event, I’d like to bring to your attention something that you won’t want to miss. Our Boater’s Nights will be less formal but still very interesting. On Wednesday, June 7, our own Chairman of the Board, Dave Everitt, will be guest speaker updating you all on how we are doing at MIYC, what progress is being made during the summer and what’s in store for our short and long term goals. You won’t want to miss this very important evening and, of course, another wonderful dinner prepared by Chef Bob and his team. Watch for the eblasts with updated details on this program and please make your reservations early. I especially want to thank Vice Commodore Bob Winterhalter and Rear Commodore Jeff Comeaux as well as all who are filling in for me while I’m away. These guys are great to pick up the slack and I really appreciate having them on my team. I hope you all have a great summer and will look forward to seeing your happy faces when we all return in the Fall. Smooth Sailing, Commodore Lois Dixon

The Bridge is in the process of planning some more boating activities for the Fall and we are engaging in some summer projects. At the top of the list is working with our new FCYC Representative Ray Rosenberg and the Marketing and Communications Committee to upgrade the boating section of our website to model best practices by other FCYC Clubs.
