House Events

Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances.  The annual Blessing of the Fleet in April, Founders’ Day in October, a gala Holiday Party in early December, and the now-signature New Year’s Day Pot Luck Extravaganza are some of our fun events for members, plus a variety of terrific (and delicious) events including a Bull & Oyster Roast, Seafood Bake, and much more. Of course, we have the best seats for the annual performances of the Navy’s Blue Angels during USNA Commissioning Week, and the July Fourth fireworks display.

EYC also has plenty of family-oriented events, including monthly Family Movie Nights, Junior Sailing events and cookouts, and many children’s events such as the spring Easter Egg Hunt, summer Ice Cream Social, and the Gingerbread House Building Party in December.

Want to get in on the ground floor for the fun? Join House Committee! Meetings are held first Wednesdays of the month, 6:30 p.m. Or contact Chairs Theresa Somes. Your ideas and energy are welcome!

Around the House: April 2018

Theresa Somes

March started us out by putting on the green with our own St. Patrick’s Day party. We enjoyed some Irish fare and a pint or two. We were entertained by the Irish Step Dancers and our own EYC member Dave Aland kept us entertained with tall Irish tales and had us singing Irish tunes for the evening. There were Guinness glasses and lovely Irish hats and scarves that were raffled off. Thank you to Dave for donating an Irish walking stick for the raffle. Thank you to Glen Somes for doing a fantastic job in selling the raffle tickets.

We continued the celebration on the day itself with O’Brien’s Irish Pub. We enjoyed more Irish food and a pint. I want to thank my decorators, Dale Schulz, Leslie Lawton, and Jeanne McCoy, for helping me get our club all decked out in green.

In traditional EYC style, the rain and snow did not stop us from getting together for our annual burning of our socks to celebrate the equinox and the first days of Spring. We were able to keep warm and burn our socks thanks to our wonderful fire pit starters. Thanks to Glen Somes and Jamie Roell for doing a fantastic job in getting a roaring fire going for us. Thanks to Sharon Hadsell for reading the history of the event. We did partake in the consumption of some fantastic oysters. A big Thank You to our shuckers, merf Moerschel, Richard Dein, Angus Phillips and Chris Mikesell, for their hard work on shucking those oysters. Thanks also to Bill Sieling for bringing them to us. They were fantastic. A huge Thank You to Cheryl Lecourt for all of her hard working in putting this event together. I really appreciate it.

There is a chest of drawers in the foyer for donations of packages of new socks to be donated to the Lighthouse Shelter. Let’s see if we can’t fill that up for those in need.

I hope you were able to attend the Commodore’s Ball, which is the party of the year. We had music and dancing; hors d'oeuvres and food stations throughout the clubhouse. Thanks to Betsy Schulz for taking care of our lovely flowers for the evening. A big Thank You to Carey Kirk for all of his hard work in making this a wonderful and fun event.

We are trying something new this year for the Kids’ Easter Egg Hunt. We are holding the hunt the day before Easter. We wanted to make this an extra special day for the kids by having the hunt and the moon bounce the Saturday before. The Easter Bunny will be there for picture taking and the kids are going to be treated to an ice cream sundae. If you have any comments about this, please e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Our Easter Brunch Service begins at 10 a.m. on April 1. Reservations are recommended; walk-ins are welcome with limited seating in the bar and open deck. I hope you have a wonderful Easter and you are able to spend it with family and friends. Happy Easter.

New Beer’s Eve will be on Friday, April 6. We’re offering three different craft-brewed beers each day for $2 leading up to New Beer’s Eve, when all draft beers will be half off.

This year’s Blessing of the Fleet will be held on Saturday, April 28, at 2:00 p.m. We are fortunate to have EYC Chaplain Reverend Jeff Paulson to officiate and bagpiper Randy Welch returning again this year for the ceremony! Those who have boats on premises, please try to “dress” them or display your burgee proudly. If you can’t bring your boat to the club for the event, never fear-once again there will be vials of blessed water to take away and share with your vessel

Have a good look at the calendar as we have frequent theme nights or events during the month that are not publicized – you just gotta look for them.

We value your comments and suggestions so please fill out a comment card when you receive it with your bill. You can also find them on the table by the hostess stand.

Welcome, Spring!

EYC will hold the annual Burning of the Socks on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. At 1214± (Local MRE Time) that day, the Sun will cross the equator heading North and the Spring Equinox will arrive in the Maritime Republic!

Rain or shine, sleet or snow, the Annual Eastportorican Burning of the Socks will be held at Eastport Yacht Club. Members and guests are invited to come to burn their socks, hear the history of the event, and partake in the consumption of Cold Beer and Fresh Oysters.

The festivities begin on Tuesday, March 20, at 1600 hours in the yard. EYC Shuckmeisters will be working their artistry.

Come down, enjoy a cold beverage and an oyster or six, and burn your winter socks in the bonfire. Bring a new pair of socks to donate to the Lighthouse Shelter for those in need. Outfitters will be open, too, with the limited edition Burning of the Socks T-shirts! Don't miss it.

New to sock burning? This sacred ritual, which was entrusted to EYC by its founder, Bob Turner, has deep roots and has been featured in news stories across the nation, including in the New York Times.
