Dear Lakeside Family,

 The calendar tells us spring is here although the weather for the last few days has left some skeptics. However, there are many signs of the start of the new boating season. Boats are being launched, the Clubhouse has seen a great deal of activity including the most recent prime rib night ( the Queen of Hearts pot is now over $1500.00 and rising ) , the Easter buffet was well attended and a sell-out for the 1040 steak dinner this past Thursday. Larry has seen a pickup in private parties and many events are coming up that hopefully, you will enjoy such as the pasta bar at the end of the month, the Commodore’s Ball on May 22nd, and Memorial Day weekend. Additionally, the Entertainment Committee has been hard at work and published the schedule of events that you should all check including evening’s entertainment and dock party dates. And don’t forget the LYC Regatta in July.  Please check your calendars and plan on joining in on the fun.

 A number of housekeeping items have been or will be addressed. Regular maintenance goes on with our docks and grounds, awnings have been installed on the west side of the Clubhouse by the outside bar and seating areas. The pool fence damaged by winter storms has been repaired, thank you House and Grounds, and the planned paving of the parking lot will begin in mid-May. With respect to the paving, it is imperative that winter stored boats be removed from the lot so the paving may proceed on schedule. As such we have been reminded several times that the last day for lift-in is May 5th. If a stored boat is not timely removed the Club will move the boat to enable the paving to commence and the boat owner will be charged for the moving costs. Please cooperate and get your stored boat into the water by the lift-in date.

I would like to bring several other items to your attention. Our docks are now filled and we have many new members, thank you Membership Committee. Let’s make our new members feel welcome by introducing yourself to them if you get a chance.  Also, somebody you may want to say hello to is Raeshon Caldwell our new assistant manager who came by way of Jack’s Casino. She has a great deal of experience in restaurant and bar management and we look forward to having her with us. And the Point Committee is still working with MetroParks for plans to improve the point, but immediate plans are to clean up and fence storage areas to make the point more attractive.

Of course, we are still under Covid restrictions. Please remember to wear a mask when moving about the Clubhouse and be mindful of social distancing. Hopefully, at some point, we will return to normalcy.

 Look forward to seeing you at the Club and here’s to a great season at LYC.

 Regards,

 John Szabo
