Upcoming Events at LYC

15 Aug

Saturday’s monsoon ended just in time for the Wing Ding Dango event.  Thanks to Greg & Michelle Moyers and crew for the excellent chicken wing dinner.  Thanks to the 45+ members and guests who   ventured out. No one went away hungry from this one for sure!

Social activities on tap for this week:Tuesday August 16 is Salmon Bites in support of the Sailing School.  By now, y’all should know the drill.  Ten bucks gets you deep fried salmon, fries, and coleslaw.  Serving starts at 5:30 p.m. and continues until 7:00 p.m.
Friday & Saturday August 19 & 20 – SHRIMP DINNER. This two evening event is hosted by the Gillette’s, Hill’s, Kuk’s, James’, & Stovall’s. Cost will be $15 per person cash or punch combination.  Social starts at 6:00 p.m. with dinner served at 7:00 p.m. each evening. Menu to include: peel & eat shrimp, baked potato, salad, corn on the cob, rolls, snacks, and dilly bar for dessert. The drink special for both evenings will be Ukrainian Mule (blueberry). Please call or text Sandy at 231-690-6224 to place a reservation.  If you text or leave a message please include full name and which night you wish to reserve.   If you are making reservations for other members as well as yourself, please let her know this as well.

Please join us on Sunday August 21st from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for the first LYC Art Show & Fundraiser. Luci Lavis and Marina McGee came up with this idea a while back and the initial response has been inspiring!  Cancer has touched nearly every member of our club, so we decided to combine our love for art and the opportunity to help combat this insipid disease.  Artist entry fees and 15% of all sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Refreshments will be available with donations going to the ACS as well.

So far there is a tentative list of 6-8 artists slated to show their work, including fabric arts, watercolor, drawing, acrylics, jewelry, glass artwork, dioramas, photography, and wood art.  We have room for a few more now that the addition is available.  Contact Marina McGee (231-266-2018) or Luci Lavis (231-843-1561 to reserve a display area. Artist’s entry fee ($20) will cover 1 round table and floor space for display. Artists can begin setting up at 10am.

Sailing activities – Thursday evening racing particulars will be announced later this week.

Looking ahead – Fergburgs Tuesday August 23 and an Italian dinner Saturday August 27 (rsvp starting Sunday August 21).

Work is slated to continue beginning Monday to the repair of the north seawall. 

Monday is National Relaxation Day so it is a good way to start a great week everyone!
