When I look at the EYC Member Handbook and see the list of Past Commodores, I am awed by those who have served before me. It seems that it was just yesterday that Mark Schroeder asked if I would be willing to serve on the Board of Trustees and now here I am, Commodore of Eugene Yacht Club.
EYC exists because of the dedicated volunteers that provide countless hours to the Club. Starting with this year’s Board I ask everyone to join me and thanking each one for their dedicated service: Robert Moline, Vice Commodore; June Chamberlin, Secretary; Matt Sprick, Treasurer; Stephanie Lunceford, 1st Trustee; Al Avey, 2nd Trustee; and Gary Powell, Rear Commodore.
At this year’s Annual Meeting, I was supposed to present my annual budget to the membership as specified in the Bylaws of our Club. Well, I did not do this, and am taking the opportunity now to present the budget as detailed below.
