Fellow Ephraim Yacht Club members,
George Kraemer, the EYC’s Commodore elected in August 2011, unfortunately had to resign from that office for health reasons. George has contributed greatly to the EYC as a member of the Board of Directors, as Dock Committee chair, and for the past two years as Vice Commodore. I know that all EYC members join me in thanking George for his hard work and effective leadership, and in wishing him a speedy and complete recovery. George will remain on the Board of Directors and we look forward to his continued participation in EYC governance. We hope to see him and his wife Carole frequently at the EYC this summer. We are also fortunate that Carole will stay on as head of the First Mates.
The EYC Board of Directors has named me Commodore. As an avid sailor and racer, life-long member of the EYC, and former sailing instructor, I welcome the challenge. Thanks to volunteers like George, the EYC is in great shape. I look forward to working with all of you to continue to improve the EYC.
The Ephraim Yacht Club is what its members make of it. Feedback, constructive criticism, ideas and suggestions from members are always welcome; also very welcome are offers to work to implement those ideas and suggestions. Contact any officer, Director, or committee member by going to www.eyc.org/contactus. You can contact me at (414) 322-7880 or [email protected].
Here’s looking forward to a safe and fun 2012 season!
