MYC took time to celebrate turning 50 years as a sailing club on November 10th. In case you missed the event, it brought together the membership, past commodores, special club friends, food, and beverage under the cover of tents on the lawn. View photos from the event here 50th Anniversary Photo Album.
Commodore Tim Armour opened the event with a special thanks to all members and special friends who helped the club develop from a small lean-to clubhouse on the Glass Breakwater to the present-day clubhouse location fronted by a designated small boat anchorage that is managed by the club. The Commodore recognized the markers of progress under a steady flow of volunteerism.
Tim was followed by the Guam Legislature’s Speaker Tina Rose Muna Barnes, who, with a huge amount of exuberance, presented the club with a congratulatory Legislative Resolution. Her enthusiasm for sailing was rooted in her younger years when sailing with Dan Plummer off Family Beach in the harbor.
Your Vice Commodore dug through the archives and presented information on the historical markers of the club, followed by Past-Commodore Cathleen Moore-Linn commenting on MYC’s community contribution throughout the years. Check back soon for a downloadable copy of the presentations given by Commodore Tim, Vice Commodore Ginger, and member Cathleen Moore-Linn.
An Honorary Membership was presented to Governor Lourdes Leon Guerrero at her chambers on December 5th. Approved by the Board, the Governor received a framed burgee and membership card for her use, presented by Commodore Armour, in attendance with Lynn Flores, Charo Flores, and Vice Commodore Ginger Porter.
