The Port Ludlow Yacht Club’s Annual Business Meeting will be held at the Bay Club on Saturday, October 19th at 3:30pm. The business meeting will include the Election of Officers and Directors and report on the business and activities of the Yacht Club during this year. There will be a vote of the membership to confirm the 2020 slate of nominees that were presented at the nominations meeting on September 21st.

The meeting will be followed by dinner at the Wreck Room at 5:00pm organized by our Social Director Carol Reynolds. This meal will be at no cost to our yacht club members although you must RSVP for this event by Wednesday, October 16th. You will receive a free drink coupon for attending the business meeting to use at the Wreck Room that evening. Details are on the PLYC website calendar.

A PLYC Women’s Group event will happen on October 8th at 4:00pm at the Beach Club. The event “The Art of Giving – One Table at a Time” will focus on providing funds to programs that support our community. All proceeds will go to charitable contributions to benefit our community. Thank you to our PLYC Women’s Group organizers – Jeanne Joseph, Anne Burrell-Smith, BJ Luce, Deanne Pedersen, and Peggy Kulm. I’m proud to be part of this generous group.

A New Member Brunch will be held on Sunday, October 27th at 10:00am at the Wreck Room. The 2019 PLYC Board will welcome this year’s new members and orient them to the Board’s responsibilities and volunteer positions in the club - all while sipping bubbly! The New Member Recruitment Program continues to move forward with positive results. Cards are available at the Wreck Room for all members to use to invite potential members to the Club. The three couples that have been guests at the Wreck Room after a recruitment invitation have all applied for membership.

There are many wonderful food events for October. A big thank you to all the volunteers that keep this club running. We appreciate you all.

See you at the club!
