Dear LYC Members:

I hope you and yours are all doing well and gaining in spirit, as I am, with the proverbial “light at the end of the tunnel” that is the sun in the sky! 

It’s April! That means lift in begins with the first boats being launched this Saturday; we’re open again on Sunday’s, if only until 5:00 pm and activity is picking up in the yard and throughout the Club. While today there’s a chill Nor’ easter blowing, Spring is coming on and Chef Lissa’s A-1 Steak Burger lunch special today was fantastic! I’m very anxious to see the new menu!

We continue to make modest improvements inside the Club, many of which will be in place prior to the General Membership meeting this coming Tuesday, April 9th. Others, such as the counters and sinks for the inside restrooms have been a bit delayed, however, it’s much more important they be done “right” as opposed to “right away”. 

The one downside to April is tax day, but we’ll try to take some of the sting out of it with our $10.99 strip steak special on the 16th; Easter Brunch on Sunday, the 21st and our last prime rib night of the season on the 25th. The Not Guilty Band will kick off band season from 7-11 pm on Saturday, April 27.

Abby and I hope you will save May 18th for the Commodore’s Ball which is being built with a Derby theme in honor of the Preakness, second race of the Triple Crown, being run that evening. Post time is 6:20 pm and our festivities will kick off at 5:00 pm. Our friends from Fireside will be the band that evening. If you know these guys, no explanation is necessary. If you don’t, no explanation I can provide will do them justice: you just gotta see it to believe it.

I hope to see many of you this Tuesday at the General Membership meeting, if not before.

Fair winds and following seas,

All the best,
