Rob Whittemore on

Commodore

After a lot of hard work by many, many people, I am pleased to announce that the new East Dock will be ready for use this weekend! We ask that you be patient while a few finishing touches are completed and ask that everyone stay off the freshly seeded areas!

 

I would like to thank the many volunteers that have taken this project from concept all the way to completion.  I would also like to thank all the donors for their generous support.  It is important to note that donations came in from all divisions of the club.  There are so many people who have made this a reality -- Thank you!
