Marina’s 5th Birthday Party

Who would believe that it’s been 5 years? Sometimes it feels like only yesterday, but other times it feels like the Marina has been there forever.
 
A great opportunity for Squadron Members and friends to get together – and yes we did.
 
Members Services and Events group organised Music by Ron Kingston, Bar-B-Q from the Squadron and members ‘BYO’ everything.
 
The marina walkway outside ‘C’ arm looked a bit quiet in front of William Patterson  – the sound deck – but looking through the Marina pens boats were crowded.
 
A beautiful late summer evening.
 
The Cake – organised by Rick Matthews – was cut by Commodore Charles.
 
In a short speech, Charles took us back before the 2014, and reminded us of the 15 year effort to reach this conclusion and thanked all involved.
 
Combined with the evening was a fundraiser for Cure Cancer Australia, which kicked off our campaign to the tune of 155.65 from collections, towards our team goal of $500.Online, tax-deductible donations can be made on our Barbecure fundraising page at https://curecancer.grassrootz.com/barbecure-2018-2019/royal-melbourne-yacht-squadron Feel free to share the link.

A great evening,

Cheers Chappy
