Things have been pretty quiet since the publication of the March Signal Hoist. Right now we’re happy for the rain, but keeping our fingers crossed as several rain storms make their way through Santa Barbara. We hope that there are no more mudslides in Montecito and that, Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24, will be dry and allow our planned Star Party and Ships and Dips to proceed. If we need to reschedule, we’ll let everyone know. (The weather was fine as reported in this issue – see Star Party and Ships and Dips.) Coming up on Saturday, April 21, is our Spring Brunch, held again on the comfortable garden patio of the Swalling’s hilltop home. John Profant is our lead on this event and he will be contacting all former Commanders for their signature culinary creations for this annual event.
Remember to start setting those items aside that you’d like to offer to someone else, at the Nautical Swap Meet on May 12.
