December 1st 2014
Please welcome members Robert Macaluso, BK Powell and Don Ploetner as new Directors For 2015 & 2016. They were recently elected to serve as Directors of the Chris-Craft Antiuqe Boat Club for 2-year terms. They, along with our present Directors are looking forward to serving the Club as we continue to work toward making improvements. This coming year we expect to make great progress in improving our website among other priority items.
We are very proud to announce that our Mangling Editor, Bill Baldwin has been appointed by the Board of Directors as our first ever Honorary Director. This position was created by the BOD to honor present (and future) Club Leaders for their exemplary service to the Club and whose present duties are critical to the wellbeing and successful continuation of the Club. As many of you know, Bill Baldwin has been the Managing Editor of The Brass Bell since 2005 and has developed this magazine into a highly sought after first class quarterly publication which is second to none in our avocation. Bill is most certainly deserved of this honor, and much more.
Your Board of Directors for 2015 includes the following members in good standing; Elected Directors Paul Harrison, Jeff Rogers, Jim Frechette, Al Benton, Robert Macaluso, BK Powell and Don Ploetner, and Honorary Director Bill Baldwin. Outgoing Directors Don Ayers and Gerry VandeVusse deserve a huge Thank You from all of us for their hard work over the past few years.
As you may have read in The Brass Bell - Issue 4-2014, President's Message, Don Ayers will step down as President of the Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club on December 31st. He has lead the Club from almost certain demise in early 2012 to an organization with a governance structure that can endure indefinitely. For this we thank you, Don Ayers!
