March 11, 2012: I want to thank those members who were able to join us tonight in Juanitaville for the Annual Financial Town Hall. We were able to review the financial results of 2011 and talk about what we anticipate for 2012. Treasurer Scott Miller Treasurer revealed the numbers that showed we were in the black at the end of 2011 and we are projecting a similar result in 2012.
Not a Moment too Soon...
March 4, 2012: Tremendous progress was made this week. Demo was completed on Thursday and once the siding and Tyvek was removed we found that the decision to rehab the building was made not a moment too soon. As these photographs show the amount of rot and hidden damage behind the walls was very serious.
Juanitaville OccupiedFebruary 20, 2012: Over 150 Members and friends occupied Juanitaville last night as the Eastport Yacht Club celebrated the opening of our temporary quarters in the front parking lot. It was gratifying to see so many friends join in the celebration. The tents were erected on the deck and Chef Larry and his staff showed just how good the food could be coming out of a trailer. General Manager Bill Kocan had the place whipped into shape and a great time was had by all.
February 10, 2012: Well it's about time!!!!
After months of frustrating delays, meetings, phone calls, more meetings, more delays we finally have building permits. All it took was Rear Commodore Schaller calling in every favor owed to him and setting up a meeting with the Mayor and City Manager with him and Vice Commodore Malkin. They must have really turned on the charm because all of our permits were released late this afternoon. We have miles and miles to go but we are finally at the starting line.
