Lake Hopatcong Chapter
Remember the song, “See you in September” by the Four Seasons? Well that must have been in the days when we had long summers to enjoy. Then it’s June, and next thing you know we’re raking leaves and saying…what happened to the summer??
But I’m happy to share that our boating life doesn’t end in August. The Niagara Frontier Chapter just hosted their 40th Annual Antique Boat Show at the Buffalo Launch Club on September 7th-9th. There was a good showing from the Lake Hopatcong Chapter with about 20 members attending including yours truly.
The 2018 ACBS Annual Meeting and International Boat Show is being held in Port Huron, Michigan on September 9-15th. Stan Struble, the current ACBS VP will be inducted as ACBS President during the week’s festivities. Congratulations to Stan!!! Also in attendance will be Wyn Ginter who will do a presentation on our youth program which involves working with the Boy Scouts.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Halloween Costume Party being held at Patrick’s Pub on October 27th. And of course, our final event of the year is our Annual Meeting on November 18th at the Windlass. Unlike last year, this year we will have the entire restaurant to ourselves so that we can spread out and enjoy each other’s company and the wonderful brunch that they provide, as well as have a more spacious area for presentation of awards.
While it is a note for next summer: our Chapter will be hosting a National ACBS Quarterly Meeting during our June Boat Show. This is a big deal and I hope to see everyone in attendance at the multiple events we have planned!
As this may be my last letter to you, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve as your LHACBS President. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with you and to make many new friends along the way.
I hope to see you at the Annual meeting.
