Our end of year potluck and awards party is scheduled for this Monday, 5/29, 4:00pm.  The party will be at Jacob's house this year, address is 1873 N Shore Rd. This will be a potluck, so please use the link below to sign up for what food you can bring. If you could also put how many family members you are bringing on the right hand column of the sheet, that would be very helpful! 

I hope everyone can attend, both sailors and parents please!.  Anyone that was part of the team either spring or fall should come. It will be a potluck like last year, so everyone should bring something.  I have created a sign up sheet online, just click on this link: POTLUCK SIGN UP  Everyone please fill out your name and what you plan to bring.
