Update from the Commodore April 8th

Hi everyone. I hope you are safe and sound in your shelter in place accommodations. I understand every day gets harder as we learn a new way of life. Hopefully, we are approaching the peak and will soon see the curve head the other way and get closer to our life as we used to know it. We had our monthly Board of Directors Meeting last night via Zoom. For those of you who were not there here is a brief update. The Yacht Club will remain closed until further notice. The Now Hear This article stated the club would be closed until April 19 and went out prior to the new orders to shelter in place until May 3. We are hopeful to open the club close to that date and are preparing the necessary actions to ensure everyone’s safety.

Philip, our club manager, is the only person going into the club right now and he has a list of projects he is working on to maintain and improve the club. He has also set up an office in his home to be sure the bills are paid and the communications stay open. As we remain closed we still have an ongoing list of repairs and maintenance. One item on order for a while is a new dishwasher for the bar. We have approved the installation of new doors going into the dining room. The dining room and central room need painting. Plumbing in the showers and sinks need some repair. There are repairs needed on the deck railing. These are the immediate items on the list for repairs that Philip will be addressing. Long term items include the replacement of the roof, the improvements to the commercial kitchen as well as to the upstairs. As you can see the list is significant. This is why we encourage you to continue to pay your monthly dues so we can continue to have a clubhouse we are proud of.

I thank you all for supporting your yacht club and the efforts of the Board of Directors. We share a love of the water and boating and we are grateful for your help and understanding in these strange times. Soon we will put this all behind us and celebrate. Until then, please stay safe and stay home. We will look back with pride.
