Helm Report: October 2021|
Ahoy from the Bridge!
We've delayed this report a few days to include a few of the happenings in early November.
2. We are all about growth!
Pictured here is the first formal meeting of our volunteers. They recently met to plan for an MVP fundraiser "Parking Lot Pates" that is scheduled for Saturday Nov. 20th (10:30 - till) in the
MVP's parking area. There are plans for more fundraisers in the future, with all product costs being donated by the volunteers. Readers pay attention, the roots of the MVP's are spreading!
Sailing... they love sailing! Afternoons at the MVP are busy times and activities are based on the weather conditions. Lunch is usually rushed as the excitement builds to get out on the water!
Last Saturday there was a steady breeze and the decision was made to hold a first time Optimist race 'Over & Back' to Happy Island (took one hour). Of course the sailors were wearing life jackets
and our rescue dinghy was following the pack. The last hour of every day is reserved for pool training. No slack is allowed, 9:30-4:30 is a full day of learning!
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We are blessed to have generous supporters and hard working volunteers. And like the trees we've planted,
MVP students are starting to blossom. Everyone deserves a BIG THANKS!
