The Welcome Back Party this year was hosted by The Bistro Soleil restaurant on the 3rd of November.  A total of 71 members in attendance were happy to see their returning friends from up north.  Everyone mingled and enjoyed each other’s company during happy hour.  We added a new “twist” to this years Party and played a game of Heads or Tails which was the brainchild of Betty Barter, Cindy Brown and Marcia Orsolini.  Everyone joined in on the fun and we all had a few laughs. The money the ladies collected will go towards supporting the Power Squadron, the Civil Air Patrol, and Coast Guard Auxiliary.  Prior to dinner Commodore Bob Boland called the annual meeting to order.  The officers for the coming year were elected: Frank Mulligan Commodore, Rudi Landwaard Vice Commodore, and Sally Orth Rear Commodore.  Bruce Kane will assume Sally Orth’s position on the Board of Directors Class of 2017. The class of 2019, comprised of Cheryl Coffin, Bob Gagnon, Larry Sacher and Bill Schroeder was elected as presented.  Alan Sandlin gave the invocation before dinner.  The restaurant hosted a delicious sit down dinner consisting of three entree choices. A good time was had by all…….Welcome back everyone!
