Well here we are again, the end of another year. The club elected new officers for the upcoming year at our December meeting.

They are:

Jim Forbes   Commodore
Mary Rose Cassa   Vice Commodore
John Strebel   Recording Secretary
Stephen Ma   Treasurer
Lee Duvall   Power Squadron Officer
Mike Stobbe   Free sail Squadron Officer
Jason Spiller   R/C Sail Squadron Officer
Don Ciucci   Director at Large
Ken Valk   Director at Large
Til Mossi   Director at Large
Ed Schoenstein   Director at Large
Thomas Thomas   Director at Large


I look forward to serving with the new Board. I thank Alan Warren for his service as a director. Alan chose to retire this year

I wish a speedy recovery to Emmitt Thisdale and Bob Van Vranken. Both gentlemen have recently suffered serious health problems. I know that they would enjoy hearing from their friends and knowing that our prayers are with them.

I wish everyone a Happy and Joyous New Year. Let’s have another great year enjoying the hobby we all love, and the camaraderie that comes with it.

And I wish to add my sincerest sympathies and support to Mike Stobbe and his family.    (Refer to Crow's Nest)

Jim Forbes, Commodore
