2020-2021 GET UNDERWAY Meeting - August 26th at Higel Park

    Captain Marge Whiteman enthusiastically led the August 26, 2020 "Get Underway" Meeting.  In honor of National Day celebrating when Women finally got the right to vote, Marge gave a brief interesting history of the struggle.   Highlights of the meeting included the presentation by PC Anne Chotkowski of the 2019-2020 Shipmate of the Year Award to Jill Joos.  A very surprised and moved Jill tearfully accepted the award and gifts of an Engraved Crystal, sailboat print, and a special members gift in support of Jill, who has persevered through a difficult year.  
    Treasurer's Report was given by Ann Carroll and a VYBA update by its director Kelley Severns.  Vice Captain Lois Steketee urged members to post our Sunfish Open House Flyer on other internet sites they may be part of and hard copies are available.   Interclub report by Pam Miller included a preview of our Home Interclub Prizes, bags made by Jill and Sunfish earrings made by Tina Hasse's husband, Ed.
    Recognizing the many summer Birthdays Ann Carroll made sure we had kazoos to kazoo out the Happy Birthday Song.  Two present at the meeting were Penny Washburn, 8/22, and Judy Collins, 8/27.  We brought cards for Judy being her 80th milestone Birthday!
