Happy Spring Everyone,
Isn’t the sunshine & warmth glorious?
Last month was a fun month at the Club & a big thank you to Ty Silva and his crew for a wonderful Corned Beef meal. Ox Bow cruised in, we had a DJ and we danced & drank the evening away. Jeff & Stephanie Irvine blessed us with their fresh made pizzas on a Friday night and they were awesome.
We are getting feedback that our members really enjoy when our members cook for us & share their specialty or a great meal. Our numbers are usually up on those Friday’s so please let someone on the board know you would like to take a Friday night and contribute. One Friday in May, I will make a meal, keep your eyes out & check out the upcoming menus on the weekly email & Cross Currents.
We introduced the New 70th Anniversary Tu-its & they look fantastic!!!!! Linda Marriott Young did a fabulous job & we sold 177 of them. YEAH! They will next be available on Opening Day. Also, don’t forget our 70th Anni-versary Burgee’s are available in the Boutique for $50.00 each.
Contra Costa County Supervisor Diane Burgis will be attending our Anniversary celebration. Yeah! Things are starting to come together. Please contribute photos & stories to add to our celebration & remember to mark your cal-endar for June 16th. We will be having hor d’oeuvres & a ceremony, a lovely meal & end-ing our evening with live music & dancing to complete our Celebration.

On sad note we have lost another of our own, Gerry McTernan passed away on March 22. We did 8 Bells at our ApriI meeting. I know many of you were very close to her, we are sorry. Michael Herrick’s grandson also passed away & our hearts go out to Michael & Debbie Garrity and their family.
On positive note, check out this month’s Yachtsman, you will find a picture of Staff Commodore Andy Rowlands induction to the International Order of the Blue Gavel, congratulations Andy.
Don’t forget check out the second installment of the history of the SJYC in this Cross Currents.
It’s always pleasure to see you all & I hope you come on down, enjoy the fun, have a great cocktail or two & support our Club!
Be safe out there,
Patricia Atkins, Commodore

The powers that be are trying to outwait the taxpayers of California and make it difficult to stay in the fight to save our precious Delta. Also there is a petition on the website about saving the salmon. Sign that one, too.
