Well as I write this, tomorrow is the first day of Spring and we are expecting SNOW. That puts the whole winter in perspective. But, we have already experienced some days in the 60’s and more are on the horizon, which means deck time at the Fleet Reserve Club. The official opening day of the deck will be announced soon, so remember to be courteous and polite when competing for a seat, as competition will be strong as the weather improves.
Also, membership renewals will be mailed out in April. Please return them timely as the new membership year, along with new key card and parking/boating stickers, starts 1 July 2015. We will conducting our “pay down the mortgage” lottery again this year and you can order tickets through the mail (with membership renewal) or by purchasing them at the FRC, for $20.00 each, once they are available. We are also still selling tickets for the Maui, Hawaii trip at $100.00 per ticket (only 200 tickets printed) and they will be available until they are all sold or until the day of the drawing, 15 August 2015. They can be bought at the FRC.
We will be announcing a date for the 2015 annual “Veteran’s Open House” soon, so line up your prospective veterans who may be interested in joining the FRC (anyone who is a veteran – includes active duty – is eligible for membership). Have a nice spring and I’ll see you at the club.
Winter is finally leaving us and we are looking forward to serving on our waterfront deck. Please be aware we don’t just snap our fingers and the deck is at full speed! We still have several Employees in College and staff accordingly. The deck will be put together a little at a time so we can handle the customers. We usually wait to put up the umbrellas as it will still be chilly and breezy. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!
