Correction: A previous e-mail incorrectly listed the dates of the Regatta Welcome Party and the Bratfest as July 1 and 2, respectively. The correct dates are, of course, August 1 and 2, respectively. We hope to see you at each of these fun parties!
The EYC’s sailing season kicks off this week! For the first summer in over 90 years we will miss Weed Vail’s presence at the EYC. But we know that somewhere he is watching, with joy and satisfaction, all the EYC members sailing and enjoying the club that he did so much to build.
There will be a MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR MALCOLM D. VAIL, JR. on Saturday, June 7 at 3:00 PM at Blossomburg cemetery at Peninsula State Park. “Weed” Vail was a lifelong EYC member and multiple-term Commodore. All EYC members are invited to the service.
