My good friend Dave McDonough has taken my idea of creating your own yacht club and gone me 10 steps better. He has created a yacht club for the college his daughter attends, Trinity College in Hartford, CT, calling it the Trinity Yacht Club--complete with bylaws and mission statement. See the brand new burgee in a handsome frame below.
This Saturday (Oct. 22) Dave is presenting a certificate to James F. Jones, president of Trinity College, at halftime in the Long Walk Society Tent during Parent's Weekend to officialy launch the organization.
The certificate proclaims that Jones, as Trinity's president, is named Commodore Emeritus of the Trinty Yacht Club, and all future Trinity presidents will be so honored as well. To top it off, any surplus funds from dues and fees accurred by the Trinity Yacht Club will be donated to Trinity College to use as it sees fit. A fun idea and a neat way to raise funds your alma mater. What about your college or school?
