This is a proposal to erect a monument for the deceased members of the Club that have had their ashes spread at the lake. This proposal is to furnish and install a monument made out of honed granite in the shape of a stylized sailboat with bronze plaques for names as follows:

 One Granite sail shape 25” Wide x 42” Tall x 4” Thick.

 One Granite base 36” Long x 14” Wide x 6” Thick in the shape of boat hull.

 Granite to be Grey with honed finish and rock pitch edges.

 One side of sail etched with a ships wheel and the other with an anchor.

 The top of the base would be engraved with “FROM THE SEA WE CAME, TO THE SEA I HAVE RETURNED” on one side of the sail and “ETERNAL FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS” on the other side of the sail.

 Holes for 16 bronze plaques to be predrilled (8 on each side)

 Bronze plaques not included.

 Delivery, installation and tax included for $1,000.00

Bronze Plaques as follows:

 8 ½” x 5 ½” cast.

 Includes maximum 40 – 5/8” raised characters on 3 lines.

 Cost of plaque to the Club is $200.00 each.

Proposed location is in the yard arm (flagpole) much bed, pointing (sailing) Northeast.

Plaques are limited to Members who have had their ashes spread at the Lake. Pre-purchase option is available.

This proposal is for the Club to buy the monument and that the plaques be made available to the members for $277 each which includes tax and would recoup the cost of the monument when filled.

See diagram of monument on attached.
