COLINGTON HARBOUR YACHT & RACQUET CLUB

Our 50th anniversary celebration pig pickin’ was a wonderful success! Thanks to all who attended, and those who helped to organize the event. It was the perfect kick-off to a wonderful summer full of activities for our members.

POOL

Pool membership this year was over 480 families and growing! Thanks to Jane, Kim, Fran, Parker, Makaiya, John, Dianna, Terri, and Steve for keeping all of us safe this summer. Thanks to John, our CPO, and Donna, for keeping the pool clean. Teen Night was a big success – over 50 kids participated.

WATER AEROBICS

Once again, we had a summer full of great exercise, fun, and a delicious luncheon to thank our wonderful water aerobics instructors. Many thanks to our instructors: Jane Kashuba, Hunter Will, Val Morton, and Erin Murphy, and to Tracey, Karin, and Sue, for coordinating the luncheon.

FRIDAY BURGER NIGHTS

For the 2nd year, we offered members a chance to enjoy the pool a bit later (open until 8 pm on Fridays), get together with friends & family, or to meet new neighbors while enjoying a burger ($4) or hot dog ($3) plate
(including fixings, chips, beverage, and dessert). We were thrilled to have a great turnout each week – with
our last Burger Night feeding over 75 people! Thanks to Fran & John Collins for the idea to create this opportunity for families and friends to enjoy a meal together! Thanks to Paul, John, Steve, & David – our grillers, to Fran, Barbara, Jane, Corky, & Karin – for set up & prep, and to those who donated desserts.
Hope you will plan to join us next summer!

Come join us for Thursday Night Bingo (6-9 pm) at the Clubhouse! Members can play ten games for $10. Prizes are awarded to winners. Many thanks to Pat and Jane, our Bingo callers.  We’ve had a great
turnout all summer, and hope to see you on a Thursday evening this year!
