(New) New Members:
Ahoy! Just in time for the holidays! The Board recently approved the following additions to our membership rolls:
Returning members Glenn and Janice Butler live in Bellingham and pilot a 42' Nordic Tug, True Blue. They are sponsored by Craig Henderson and Bob Simica.
Another returning Bellinghamster is Ray Gilbride. He pilots a Uniflite 36 named Alta Luna. Jonathan Knowles and Mike Welsh are his sponsors.
Mark and Lisa Harding moved recently from Connecticut to Bellingham. Enthusiastic sailors, they are currently boatless. Their sponsors are Mike and Marian Welsh and Jody Erickson.
Look for these new members at the club and introduce yourself. Make it a point to tell them about your favorite club activity, and to make it easier for members new and old, please remember to wear your name badge whenever you are in the club!
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
While eating up those leftovers, remember to write those special recipes for the Cook Book Committee
