Happy Thanksgiving! Now let's start thinking about Christmas. This note is not from my newsletter, but I wanted to remind everyone to get signed up for the Commodore's Ball AND I want to congratulate the 2023 Nominees: Christopher Bown, Commodore; Len Meyers, Vice Commodore; Ericka Collier, Rear Commodore; Kami Heussner, Port Captain; Dana Dale, Cruise Captain; Rick Heussner, Treasurer and Doris Hill, Secretary. We will ratify them by acclimation at the November meeting! Now to the Newsletter:
I am ready to put up my Christmas decorations!! Too soon? I remember our first year living aboard. I had just enough room in the cockpit for a small Christmas Tree. Unfortunately, winds picked up and kept blowing it over breaking the ornaments, so we had to make do with lights along the stanchions. I also put lighted candy canes around the dinghy. Decorating our boat was a challenge so I jumped on the Christmas Boat Lane Parade committee for a couple years to get my holiday fix. That was Christmas 2014, now here we are getting ready for the 2022 Christmas Boat Lane Parade. I never get tired of Christmas lights. I hope we have a couple TMCA boats in the parade this year. I’m more than willing to help you decorate, just give me a call. If I am talking about Christmas too soon, my apologies, but I am already watching holiday movies.
I am very excited for the 2023 nominees! What a great slate of nominees to take over for 2023! We will be voting by acclimation at this month’s meeting since we only have one nominee per position. The November meeting will also be the meeting where each of the officers will wrap up the year and give a summary of the year in their position. Please plan to attend since it will be our last meeting of the year prior to the Commodore’s ball.
Speaking of the Commodore’s Ball. You will not want to miss this years ball. We have the Mambo Jazz Kings playing!! It’s going to be fun and it’s a great time to get dressed up and spiffy! See you there!
