New Year’s Eve 2020

December 31, 2020

We’re hoping the end of 2020 will see us all in the Club, celebrating with friends & family.

We couldn’t let this year end without a celebration in sight, so plan to gather, in the club or along the marina, to watch the ball drop and raise a toast to 2021, together or distant, to the friends & camaraderie of this great community.

As the year progresses, we hope that the need for the social spacing and restrictions on celebrations will be unnecessary. We may be celebrating in the club with dinner & dancing or we may host a modified outdoor viewing from around the marina to watch the ball drop on 2020.

The Ball drops at Midnight, with a champagne toast and ham biscuits. 

Thanksgiving Day

November 26, 2020
