Our new beautiful landscaping with commemorative pavers! Completed in Spring 2013.
We had a very successful Labor Day Weekend. We had many parties culminating in the Change of Watch on Sunday. Our new Commodore is Steven Moskwa from Mackinac Island. Our Vice Commodore is Carole Erbel, Rear Commodore is Warren Levins, Treasurer is Mike Gidley, and Secretary is Kay Berke. Our members at large are Roy Boudreau, Andrew Kiener II, and Gerry Kramer.
I have rooms available mid-week all the way through mid-October. I have had some weekend cancellations also. Room 7, September 5 and 6 Room 8, September 5 and 6 Room 2, October 3 and 4.
We have 4 weddings this Fall so weekend parties are full, but remember if you want to schedule a luncheon or dinner mid-week, Tim is available for private celebrations.
Hope to see you one more time this year!
We have published a book commemorating our 75th anniversary and showcasing our history since 1937. The cost is $49.00, $5.50 for shipping if needed.
