RACKS & LOCKERS
HOUSE & GROUNDS
This is an update on what has taken place since we opened the Club and a snapshot of upcoming activities.
We officially opened on May 2nd and accepted boats earlier for slip holders with the proper paperwork and as I pointed out at the May General Meeting, many thanks to Bill Lowitz and his staff for getting the club in top shape despite the many repairs needed after a brutal winter.
On May 3rd the Club had its first 'Open House' that resulted in adding new members, educating many new and existing members, and receiving new ideas for improvement. We plan to repeat this event and wish to thank to Paul Johnson, our Community Relations Chairperson for driving this activity.
We have had two picnics with terrific weather and a nice turnout at both events. 'Hats off' to Marty Milewski, Entertainment Chairperson, Bill Lowitz, Club Manager and his team and the many volunteers who always make it happen.
'Swim Across America' a charity event to raise money for cancer research, occurred on June 27th and raised $350k. 'Cheers' to Paul Johnson, Sarah and John Keena, and Glen Hoffman for volunteering their boats for this great event.
The following have taken place so far:
'To Go' activities before Season end:
Consistent with DBC By-Laws, the Audit will be completed and the results presented at the next General Meeting in September.
“Emily’s Bill’ was passed by the CT State Legislature on June 3rd and includes the following:
On 8/24 the DBC Executive Board and Chris Krediet, a DBC member and volunteer advisor , will meet with the CT DEEP, at the Boat Club and review our plans and discuss 'next steps'.
We found your feedback from our first Opinion Survey very useful and with that said, we will conduct a second survey after the end of the season. As always look forward to your participation.
As a result of the Opinion Survey and 'Open House' we will begin a mentoring program to assist members new to boating. Paul Johnson will be coordinating this activity and you will hear more on this as we proceed.
Randy Blosio recently resigned from the Executive Board after serving for many years assisting the Fleet Captain and playing a key role in making process improvements and spending countless hours as a volunteer…Randy , many thanks for your support.
We need a volunteer to assist Brian Lovegrove, our Fleet Captain to help coordinate the Club's Launch activities. If you are interested, please contact Glen Osberg at Glenosberg70@gmail.com or on 203-921-6204.
Enjoy the rest of the boating season.
