Yacht Club Moonlight Cruise


On a perfect weather evening, August 20, the Yacht Club held its 13th annual Moonlight Cruise. It began at Holiday Harbor with dinner catered by Thomas Catering. After dinner, 46 members and six guests boarded six pontoons and one ski boat to cruise the Main Lake, finally settling in Catfish Cove to await the rising of the full moon.

“It did finally appear and what a beautiful moon it was with its bright orange glowing beautifully,” says Commodore Bob Templeton. “As Bert Barbay put it, ‘We had wonderful attendance and camaraderie, perfect weather, superb food and beverages, and one of the best moonlight cruises ever.’”

There were 14 new members who attended a Yacht Club event for the first time.

Anderson, Joe and Vicki Young and guests; Boat Captain Jim and Jane Lafferty with YC members Don and Sally Wedehase, Diane Skidmore, Carmen Branam and guest; Boat Captain Ron and Faye Wilbur with YC members Bill and Doris Thomas, Don and Kay Gamble;
