Social events for EYC club members include a number of monthly events and special holiday observances. The Commodore’s Ball in late winter, the Commodore’s Reception and Blessing of the Fleet in May, 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. 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 Chair JoAnn Lavender. Your ideas and energy are welcome!
EYC will hold the annual Burning of the Socks on Thursday, March 20, 2014. At 1257± (Local MRE Time) on that day, the Sun will cross the equator heading North and the Spring Equinox will arrive in the Maritime Republic!
Rain or shine, 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 Thursday, March 20, at 1600 hours in the yard. Shuckmeisters Lee McMichael and Bill Sieling 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 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.
Don't miss the First Annual EYC Stone Soup Celebration on Saturday, March 8, 4 to 6 p.m.
The book Stone Soup by Marcia Brown was originally published in 1947 and was introduced on the Captain Kangaroo Children’s Show in the 1950s.
You have probably heard the story; there are different versions over the years. A hungry traveler comes across a poor town in the dead of winter. He knocks on doors begging for food, but the poor residents all refuse him. In the center of town he builds a fire, pulls out a pot and fills it with snow, sets it over the fire to melt, and throws in a stone.
Curious villagers come by to see what he’s doing. He tells them he’s making stone soup, and that it would taste better, if only it had some onions. A villager agrees to give him onions if he shares the soup.Read more...
