By the time you read this, we will have had our first two social events of the season, the Star Party and the Ships and Dips. Thank you to Peggy Ciolino who organized the Star Party. Your commander could not attend as he was still recovering from a three-week long cold, but he heard that the skies were clear and the event was inspiring. Thank you also goes out to Karen Osgood for organizing and publicizing the Ships and Dips event and thank you to the squadron members who opened their boats for more than twenty of us who came to view and admire.
We will be having our first squadron business meeting on Thursday, April 5, at 7:30pm at the Waterfront Classroom as usual. Well, it’s not really as usual because we are only having one business meeting every three months. The first scheduled squadron meeting of the year was a fun and entertaining event and those who attended on Wednesday, March 7 appeared to have a really good time. I was a little surprised by how many attending had not seen the movie Captain Ron before but it was great to listen to the laughter from both first time viewers and those who deemed it worthy of another watch.
As with the movie night, all members are welcome to the business meeting and encouraged to attend to find out what issues and decisions are being made to improve our organization. Your input is welcome and we hope to see you there.
I want you to mark your calendars now for our next fun and entertainment night which will be May 3. I plan to have at least two speakers who will relate their boating experiences. Those of us who may have had similar experiences can empathize with the speaker and may be empowered to add additional perspective to the speaker’s account and those of us who may have yet to have the experience can stash away all the information provided for future use.
