Hi all, we just got back from our Annual Meeting aboard the Winni Belle. I just want to thank the folks who attended. We recognized Donnie and Jane with the President’s Award for their hard work over the years.
Laura Piatti has graciously volunteered to take over management of our chapter store. Stop by at the boat show and say hello to Laura and her volunteers. You might even find something that you need or would make a nice gift for a deserving someone.
Our Fall Boat & Car Show will be chaired by Sally Ferbert. I will be working with her to make her first show a success.
I presented a talk about the chapter’s Peter Ferber paintings and Artist Proofs and how we would be offering them to the members first, before the public had a chance to purchase them. If your boat was a subject of a painting or you just love the art work please get in touch with mw. We have moved all of them to our home.
Glenn Mori did a presentation called “First Ride”. He suggested that we give rides to youngsters so that they might get hooked on these beautiful boats just like we did! We are planning to start this year at the boat show in July. If you want to give rides please contact Glenn or I so we can give you all the details. We will make it worth your while and just think of the kids laughing while taking a spin!!
Well, I think summer will finally come to the lake! We have had great weather lately and I may even get to launch Comfy before too long. I hope all of you have been able to get your boats ready for summer.
I plan on attending the Lyman Show in Wolfeboro next weekend and hope to see you there.
Our events for this year are all on track and we expect to see you all there. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
Our website has been updated, Steve Pelizza is doing a great job, be sure to check it out. Thanks Steve!!
I think my brain is empty for now, see you soon.
All the best,
