Commodore's Comments

commodore flagWow! It’s hard to believe 2017 will be over in a matter of a few days. Seems like just the other day I became Commodore, and now I’m writing my last article for the Telltale.

2017 was another transitional year for the club. While being without a club manager for most of the year, board members had to take on the responsibilities of running the daily operations. Thankfully, with Layne Brown taking on the club manager position in October, the club is now running more efficiently as we head into 2018.

I am happy to report that we now have four candidates who have stepped forward to replace the board members who will be rotating off the board. The new Committee Chairpersons will need volunteers to help them in their new roles to keep everything flowing smoothly. That being said, now is the time for everyone to be thinking about how they can be more involved in the club for the upcoming year.

I hope many of you plan to attend the New Year’s Eve Party that will be held on Sunday, December 31, 2017. I am sure the last social of the year is going to be a blast!

In closing, I would like to thank the Board of Directors for supporting me by taking time out of their busy schedules to contribute their talents towards keeping WRYC moving forward these past 12 months. Also, I would like to thank Lauren White for putting together our Telltale newsletter each month, which she continues to do from her home in Oregon. I’ll see you at the Annual Meeting on Saturday, the 13th of January 2018!
