Welcome to Donna Mason, new Executive Secretary

David Lennarz on

Club News

On October 6th, Meg Rock resigned as Executive Secretary.  Meg interacted with many of you during her four year tenure.  She was organized, professional, and always a joy to work with.   She kept the Board on track and organized, and she dedicated herself to FBYC right up to her last weeks.

On October 14th she succumbed to cancer following nearly a decade long battle.  The large contingent of FBYC members who attended her funeral on October 20th was a testament and tribute to Meg’s contributions and an indication of just how much we will miss her.    

Shortly after announcing her resignation, Meg helped us to hire her replacement.  The hiring committee selected Donna Mason to serve ...

East Dock Update: It's not too late!

David Lennarz on

Club News

I am pleased to report that we have met our fundraising goal for the Jackson Creek east dock project.  We will continue to accept contributions.  All additional contributions will reduce the amount of debt the club will incur and will reduce the overall cost of the project .  We are in the process of reviewing and signing construction contracts and expect the project to be underway in the coming weeks.   Thank you to all who have contributed so far.
