Commodore’s and New Member’s Reception 

Monument Dedication 

Saturday, March 23, 2013


The Club hosted the Annual Commodore’s and New Member’s Reception on the evening of March 23rd. The event was well attended despite early concerns over poor weather. About 75 members braved the drizzle and chill in the air to gather at the clubhouse to honor recent new members and past commodores. New members presented to the Club included (see photo) Harry Garcia, David and Paula Poss, Nathan Mills, Bobby and Robin Paugh and Eric Monaco. Dorothy Williams and Brenda Durant did a magnificent job organizing and presenting the food for the evening, while Steve and Sheila Perun served with distinction behind the bar.


Eleven Commodores were in attendance (see photo):

Back row:

Russell Cathey 2007, our current commodore Rob Sherman 2013, Don Putnam 1998, Bob Williams 2001, Dennis Primrose 1991


Front row:

Al Britton 2004, Gil Samuelson1986, Ed Joy 1990 and 2002, Jim Claffey 1985, Dick  Mayne  2010, Dan West 2012


Dale Demyan headed up a monument dedication ceremony for deceased members who have had their ashes spread at the lake and comments were made in remembrance of those who are now memorialized with bronze plaques on the monument.   If you weren't with us that evening at the unveiling, take a look at the monument near the flagpole the next time you're at the club.   Great job, Dale!


Jim Claffey presented the 2013 Augusta Sailing Club Members Handbook to the group gathered for the reception and brought enough copies for all those in attendance.  This updated edition of the handbook has been in the works for a while now and Jim and Dan West get a big thanks for making this project happen.   Additional copies will soon be available for the rest of the membership.


All in all, it was a great evening at the club!  Good food, libations, and great camaraderie.   If you missed it this year, make sure to get your reservations in early for

next year!


Bob Williams, Event Chairman and Past Commodore
