The June Rudder is posted . . .
Here we are in June, the summer season is finally here. The pool is open and the MYC kids will be out of school before you know it. Our summer programs begin on Monday, June 25rd and that week ends with the first children’s pool party of season, on Friday, June 29th. For the second year, Ryan, from The Plate, will be running our Snack Bar. The Snack Bar will be open weekends with light fare until June 17th, after which, the hours will follow the pool schedule. The marina is filling up and the grounds look beautiful. It is a great time of year to be a member at MYC!
Our entertainment committee has been filling the calendar and we have many great events planned. We have a very busy June ahead with many member and private events. The member events start with a benefit cocktail reception on Friday, June 1st for the ladies, hosted by my wife, Elena. The annual Blessing of the Fleet is scheduled for Sunday, June 17th and is headed up by Doug Jones, PC and Fleet Captain Bob Farnum. This is a fun day to listen to music provided by The Milford Concert Band and our very own Doc Hermalyn. Watch as the boats are blessed by our Clergy and a we receive a welcome from Milford’s Mayor, and former MYC lifeguard, the Honorable Ben Blake. Oh, and of course, the main attraction, the boat parade. The pasta makers are back on Wednesday, June 27th for our first Guest Chef Pasta Night of the season. This is a well-attended evening, so reservations are a must!
The 5th annual Red Cross Blood Drive on Monday, June 18th from 1:00pm to 6:00 pm in memory of Past Commodore Frank Bayers is being held at the Club. Frank was a dear friend of ours and this is a wonderful way to remember him and others in need.
In closing, I would just like to remind the members of our guest book policy. Whether dining in the club or al fresco, please remember to come into the Club to sign your guests in our book. This is a mandate from the State Liquor Commission and required for our liquor license. It also helps identify and make guests and visitors from other clubs feel welcome.
Have a safe and enjoyable start to the summer season!
Ken Herbert, Commodore
