Small boat committee

May 22, 2009

A new small boat committee has been formed to take care of the yacht club tenders. Members of this committee are as follows:

Keith Wilcox, Steve Duffy, Ernie Neufeld, Norm Farrow and Shawn Reid.

A key box and sign out sheet has been mounted in the area of the harbour lockers.

I would like to thank the committee for all the work they have put into this project.

Thank You
