Greetings from the Social Chair!

Crocuses are up. Bottoms are being sanded down. Soon we’ll be sailing. Meanwhile, there are plenty of Social Activities at the Club! Come enjoy your Club year-round!

Volunteers Needed
Gaspee Day, June 10, is fast approaching. This is our most visible community event, and the most Fun! We are in need of help with our Parade Float, parade organization, and general assistance with our open-house Block Party. This is a fun-filled all-day event. Any help will be welcomed and appreciated. An organizational meeting notice will go out shortly.

I am still looking for help with the graphic design of announcements and assistance setting up and decorating the room for events. Contact me or just show up at a meeting.

We had a great crowd for St. Patrick’s Day enjoying an exquisite boiled dinner along with some NCAA Madness. The Corned Beef and the URI Rams were both fantastic.
The weather turned out beautiful for our annual Easter Brunch, as were the flowers throughout the Club & the meal was amazing!
