Chapter President’s Message

by Scott Robinson

Hi All, As dadaadadaI look out the window, the Lake is covered with ice and snow, it seems summer is so far away, but my dreams are about spring and the promise of warmer weather. We hope that you all are wishing for the same.

I have many jobs to get done before summer arrives, one of them is going over to Phil Spencer’s and inventory the Boat Show original paintings that Peter Ferber has done over the past years. At the last Board meeting we voted to do this and offer them first to our members whose boats are the subject of these beautiful paintings. This came about after we sold three of the originals at the Boat Museum Auction. Several members were not aware of this and were disappointed they did not get a chance to bid on them. We are going to list them on the website with a picture and offer them to our members at a special price. This will give you a chance to purchase your favorite original before the general public.

Please visit our Event Calendar here on the website that has Annual meeting aboard the Winni Belle, Board of Directors meetings and Shows. I invite all to attend our meetings, we have a fun time and since the next one is at our home we provide dinner and drinks while we all make the chapter more enjoyable for both our members and the viewing public.

Please check and see if your membership has lapsed, I have a list that I will email reminders from. I am sure that with the Holidays it was easy to forget.

We still have openings for officers and volunteers, please think about joining our ranks, we have lots of fun and it is a great way to learn more about the chapter and its members.

Well that is about all I can think for now,
Best wishes, Scott
