Jim Simons and myself went to the annual Lake Martin Resource Association meeting last Saturday morning. We have a great display with information about the club, youth program, and a 5 foot sailboat.
The discussion centered around the thefts in the area. They have 7 people in jail and believe they have stopped the home thefts at this time. A group from Montgomery were the culprits and sold the items in Atlanta.
We discussed the young people on the southern end of our boundary and Russell Lands will address that. Great discussion on the water wars and where we stand. Still a lot of work ahead to protect the Lake.
We have good interest in the Youth Sailing and handed out membership forms and ITC announcements. We thanked the newspaper editor for their support. We had a half page on the front of the sports section with pictures from last year.
The room was packed and the opportunity was a great venue to promote the Dixie Sailing Club.
I would like to thank Jim for being at the meeting and I would like to thank Ron Jenkie for the great job scheduling the work parties! The members remain steadfast in their focus in making the club a great place to sail.
Thank you to all who worked so hard on the work projects! Remember, your help, ( all members) is needed on the 20th of June at the club. ( Introduction to Sailing )
