SINK THE DINGHY ADOPTS AMY'S PLACE
Our very successful Sink The Dinghy Holiday Charity Program has adopted Amy's Place! Sink the Dinghy
is our very successful charity project that, last year, raised over $10,000 for another good cause, given in the name of our BYC.
This year that cause is Amy's Place
, a drop-in center here in town for kids from grade school up through teen years, many of whom, sadly, are homeless. The charity, carefully selected by the Sink the Dinghy Committee, is a service of Bellingham Christian Ministries, but it is non-sectarian.
We had a full presentation about Amy's Place at the Tom & Jerry Party, and donations are rolling in! This project is heartwarming for donors, and excellent community relations for our Club. You donation is fully tax-deductible. Make you check out to Sink the Dinghy, and send it to John Gargett or Paul Myers, or mail it to the Club office (BYC, 2625 E. Harbor Loop, Bellingham, WA 98225).

Joe Coons and Jim Langei
are the Jib Sheet Editors, and they'd like to add to their list of editors another couple of BYC Members so we can all rotate the job and share the load.
If you can write a modest news story, have a computer, and can use Microsoft WORD you have almost all the pre-requisites to help out. In return for volunteering, you'll get training in using the programs that do the BYC mailings and maintain our web site, and you'll get nuch better informed about our Club and its activities.
For most of this summer and fall, Joe has been doing the editing, and this has given him a chance ro refine the process. He spends two to two-and-one-half hours per week at the task, getting it done in this time because of short cuts he's developed that he will share with any new co-editors. He's documented the whole process so after a few issues, you should be as proficient as he is!
To learn more or sign up, email Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call him at (360) 739-1528. Thanks!
