If you can remember the quote from my first
“Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.”
I was expecting this quote to encompass the whole year,
I can’t believe it was all achieved in one single event.
The Labor Day Beach Party
Coming together is a beginning
This is for those members and helpers who were involved in the pre-planning. This includes but not limited to forming the committees, purchasing the food, the bar staff making sure your favorite drink was ready for you, all the kitchen workers, grill cooks, corn cookers, clam and corn shuckers, shrimp servers and those who helped organized the whole day.
Keeping together is progress
This section is dedicated to those members who prepared the grounds and the beach prior to the event and to those who set up the tables, tents, cooking equipment and then moving the whole party from the beach into the club. I did have to squash the idea to bring the sand into the building sorry. Last but not least to those who cleaned up the next day.
Working together is success
Despite of the weather this part of the quote demonstrated that any obstacle or weather like Super Storm Sandy or a cold windy rainy day could not get the best of the members of Gilford Park Yacht Club. We are not a club without the participation of all its members and helpers. It was a successful indoor picnic in spite of the weather.
If I listed all the devoted workers by name it would take pages.
GPYC thanks you all.
