This is my last communication with you as Commodore. It is amazing at how fast the past year has gone by! It was a year that saw significant achievements, including written procedures for the Membership Committee, an improved racing program, enhanced financial reporting and the development of all the summer programs.
It is important to remember that the squadron has a blend of objectives from pure racing to pure social and our survival depends on creating a balance between the two. In any case our members must be able to participate in what they feel is appropriate for them.
Hello from Cape Cod, Massachusetts! It is very difficult to believe that the summer has passed so quickly. Noreen and I are looking forward to seeing everyone again at the beginning of October!
I hope all of our members had a great summer season. I know that the Squadron's new summer program activities helped in that regard. A special thanks to Ken Nolan, Vice Commodore, Miriam Staveley, Fleet Captain-Operations, and our directors Jonathan Phillips and John Drury for their creativity and efforts to make this new initiative successful.
Hello from the frozen north (Bass River, Massachusetts)! Cape Cod Bay and Nantucket Sound are still cold from the wintertime so there is an evening chill in the air. Noreen is freezing but the ice in my veins helps me. We have a needed fire in the fireplace as I write this brief message.
Happy Spring to all! As a native of the Frozen North I am now getting accustomed to fine weather all winter long. No longer do I get as excited about the arrival of the Spring season as I did years ago. That is, years ago when the rising strength of the sun warmed my pale face while shoveling the driveway for the umpteenth time. Or was that warmth from the exertion of shoveling? Well, whatever, let us count our blessings!
