Blessing of the Fleet is this Sunday. Check the Calendar for details.Six of us sailed aboard the Hunter last Friday, and introduced our newest member Ian to sailing. Welcome aboard, Ship 777 Ian! Come join us for Friday Sunfish Sails on May 6 & 13. RSVP by Wednesday. Come practice before our Galveston Sunfish Class with expert instructor Mike Mankins on May 21st. Our April Service Project is in progress! We are making/providing bird feeders for homebound seniors. This was a request from Meals on Wheels. It is great that we can do something that has a conservation aspect and is help to our community. You can check out some DIY ideas online and make a feeder (or two). You can buy a pre-made feeder and decorate it. Or you can buy a wooden kit (Wood Bird Feeder Kit | Hobby Lobby | 562) and assemble/decorate. We will collect finished feeders at our next Ship meeting on April 19 (at the Scout Shop) and at the Friday May 6 Sail.
