Commodore’s “Thank You” Party ….
On January 3rd, the Commodore’s “Thank You” gathering was held on a beautiful Marco Saturday afternoon at Commodore Charlie and First Mate Paula Skillern’s home on Nautilus Court. 40 or so VIVs attended out of an invited 61 “Very Important Volunteers” and spouses that gave their time to and served the Club during 2014.
Charlie grilled up some chicken and pork tenderloins for mini sandwiches while Paula was in the Kitchen preparing untypical appetizer and grazing fare. In a “drop in” format from 3pm to 5pm, the VIVs and their spouses spread out in the Skillern’s home, lanais, and dock area enjoying the food, wine, and most importantly, each other.
Ron Peterson, a prospective member for the January 2015 Board meeting, was on hand with his electric Duffy boat offering excursion cruises to the Esplanade. Of course, while the electric boat cruise was underway, wine and appetizers were served on board.
Thank You gifts of “dinner and a movie” (if you like a pack of microwave popcorn for dinner with a RedBox movie voucher) were distributed to our valued VIV guests as an inadequate way for Charlie to offer a tangible “Thank You” to all of the support shown to the Club during 2014.
Commodore Charlie would like to offer his sincere “Thank You” to all members of the Club whether VIVs, event sponsors, hosts, hostesses, Bridge, Officers, or Board members …. or maybe most importantly, the Members that made it all possible with their support of our 53 Events this past year.
Thank You to all ….
