ESSEX — Pettipaug Yacht Club Rea Commodore Kathryn Allen is hosting another Work Party for members of the Pettipaug Yacht Club in Essex this coming Saturday.
She notes that although a very productive Work Party was held last Saturday, “There is still plenty to do this coming Saturday and I hope you will consider joining us for whatever amount of time you can volunteer between 8 and 12.,” stressing that any volunteer time will be greatly appreciated.

She continues, “The projects list includes adding more stone to the driveway, so we will need some volunteers with shovels and rakes.  Also we will be moving boats off the deck, putting grills in the yard, cleaning some boats, cleaning the commodore’s room, and general trimming of bushes ( if any one would like to bring clippers please do) just to start the list, so there really are jobs of all sizes and shapes for whatever skill you have.”
Explaining that, “Saturday will be a great opportunity to not only help our club, but meet new members and enjoy catching up with each other after a long winter,” she adds,  “Again, any time you have please stop by as all these projects are on-going and we appreciate any time you can give us.”
