Managers Report, 12 Aug 2019



Membership –

  • I’m pleased to welcome 72 New Memberships to date in 2019. This steady rise is reflective of a return to normal annual Membership attrition.  Last years Red Tide at this critical juncture, impacted Membership in a way that I had not seen in my life time.  We’re likely to see a steady rate of new Membership into September as the SYS & Lassies draw in and we yield community publicity for the LDR.  YTD -61 Memberships have resigned, 649 active Memberships. 40 in collections. 
  • Volunteer hours for July 2019 was 139.5.  YTD hours are 4472.1.  Great contributions by, Tim Thurman, Ron Burney & Don Sinclair, and Rosemary McMullen.
  • Last weekend Dedication of the Sun Deck to Kurt was a wonderful thank you. 2 Past Commodores (Doug Kresge and John Huber) and Commodore Millbourn, the Cliftons and Dowds put on a fitting tribute.
