Foundation Log Article – November 2022

AS I MENTIONED IN MY LAST LOG ARTICLE, WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING FINAL ARRANGEMENTS TO REPLACE THE SIGNATURE BRICKS WITH A PLAQUE TO BE PLACED ON THE WALL TO THE RIGHT OF THE ENTRANCE TO THE CLUBHOUSE.  I HAVE WRITTEN OR SPOKEN TO MOST OF YOU WHO ALREADY HAVE A BRICK ASKING IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE OLD BRICK AND MOST OF YOU DO WANT TO HAVE THEM.  I WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH YOU AND ARRANGE TO GET THEM TO YOU.  I AM SURE YOU WILL BE PLEASED WITH THE NEW PRESENTATION.  THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO UPGRADE YOUR PLAQUE TO THE NEXT LEVEL OR MAKE AN ADDITIONAL DONATION.  DONATIONS OR UPGRADES WILL INCLUDE TWO TICKETS TO THE NEXT PARTY WITH A PURPOSE WHICH IS SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 25, 2023. I WILL BE GLAD TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE AMOUNT NECESSARY FOR THE UPGRADE.

THE NEW DATE FOR FOUNDATION DAY IS NOW SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2023 AND WILL BE HELD POOLSIDE AND IN THE WHEEL ROOM.  THIS WILL BE A FUN AND EDUCATIONAL DAY DESIGNED TO INFORM NEW AND OLD MEMBERS ALIKE HOW YOUR FOUNDATION BENEFITS THE CLUB AND OUR COMMUNITY.

JUST A REMINDER, IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY NAMED THE CORAL RIDGE YACHT CLUB SAILING AND WATER SPORTS FOUNDATION ON YOUR AMAZON SMILE ACCOUNT, IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED IF YOU DO SO.  THERE IS NO COST TO YOU AND IT BENEFITS THE FOUNDATION.  DIRECTIONS WERE PROVIDED BY COMMODORE STARKEY BUT IF YOU NEED INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL PROVIDE THEM.  EASY TO DO.

WE CONTINUE TO WORK WITH THE CITY AND LAUDERDALE YACHT CLUB ON THE COMMUNITY SAILING PROGRAM AND OF COURSE OUR OWN SAILING PROGRAM THAT WAS SO WELL ACCEPTED LAST YEAR. FOR ANY MEMBER THAT IS WILLING TO DEVOTE INSTRUCTION TIME TO THE PROGRAM, THE FOUNDATION WILL PAY FOR THE ONLINE AND IN PERSON COURSES TO BECOME CERTIFIED.

AS ALWAYS, WE APPRICIATE YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
