Commodore's Ball a huge success!

Saturday night saw the AYC clubhouse transformed into an Oscar winning venue for the 2016 Commodore's Ball, complete with a red carpet! Members found themselves surrounded by movie posters, memorabilia and film. Special thanks to Denise Vasquez for sharing all her Hollywood glam, to Danette Carroll for the beautiful flower arrangements and to our very own paparazzi, Mike Russell.

Our outgoing Commodore, Jerry, presented awards to the following:
  • Most Inspirational - Karen Thomson
  • Spencer Swain Volunteer of the Year-Dorothy Engom
  • Sportsman Award- Trevor DiMarco
  • Rubber Duck Award-Del Fox...complete with photographic evidence of his headfirst plunge into the bay.
After the flag passing, MarKay's first order of business as Commodore was to give Jerry the business and present him with a new vest. In addition, she introduced a new recognition, the Lifetime Achievement Award, honoring those members who have been in the AYC for 25 years or more. Del and Geneal Fox were honored for 40 years in the club!

The evening was capped off with dancing to music by Johnny and the Moondogs.

It was a perfect beginning to the new year..and, as they say, a fun time was had by all.
