Gambol Fund-raiser Proves Successful
The Fund-raising Committee for Gambol 2004 held a ceremony commemorating the first-ever brick fund-raiser on June 18. The project involved the creation and installation of bricks, engraved with messages to past and present Schreiber graduates, in an octagonal design around the Schreiber High School flagpole. The sales, at $100 per brick, netted profits of nearly $22,000. In total, the fund-raising efforts for Gambol 2004, themed The Enchanted Castle, have garnered approximately $75,000, the leftovers of which will be used to offset the cost of the Gambol video by $10 and then donated to the cause of Gambol 2005.
At the Port Washington Chamber of Commerce's June meeting, Vice President Stretch Ryder gave a presentation entitled The Port Washington Chamber of Commerce: Past, Present and Future. His opening remarks noted the fact that the chamber will be celebrating its 75th anniversary next year. He then said, "We have seen enormous changes in the business community and face many challenges as a chamber. We have to focus on the next decade, but first it is necessary to know what we are."
On The Bay
Summer has really begun when we see junior sailors out on the bay and we start getting the results of junior regattas held up and down Long Island Sound. The summer just doesn't seem long enough to get in all the activities these young sailors attend, but somehow by the end of August, our juniors have "been there and done that." This past week is a good example of what will prove to be a summer full of great sailing opportunities. On Thursday, July 8th, Sea Cliff YC held the 2004 Western District Regatta.
