The Old Stone Dock Association held their Annual Meeting and Summer Social on Sunday, 09/08/19 from 3 pm to 6 pm at the Beach Breeze Inn on Shore Street. It was a beautiful day considering the day before there was heavy rain form Hurricane Dorian.
Jay Thayer, Polly Thayer and Steve Saunders got the tables and chairs in order earlier that afternoon. Committee member Polly Thayer put together the lovely flower arrangements on each of the tables. The registration table was manned by Cindy Lehtinen (Secretary) and Bob Lehtinen (Treasurer). Membership Chair Rebecca Bevilacqua was instrumental in the production of the 2019-2020 rosters and distributed them to members as they arrived. Terry Saunders and Steve Saunders sold OSDA logo wear. New items this year included Navy Fleece Vests, Navy T’s and Navy Caps.
Tent and table rentals were from Taylor Rental. Johns Liquor provided cold beverages. Appetizers and luncheon were by Eat Your Heart Out Catering and ice cream sundaes were from Smitty’s. We thank each of them.
President Jay Thayer welcomed the members, their guests and invited officials. We heard an update on current town activities from Town Manager Julian Suso, Deputy Director of DPW Peter McConarty and local artist and historian Karen Rinaldo. Jay reviewed the activities and accomplishments of the past year. This included our annual Beach Clean Up, the Beach Employee Appreciation Breakfast spearheaded by Anne Prior and the traffic control supplied by members for the Triathlon that provides funds for our Tuition Assistance Program.
Terry Saunders, Tuition Assistance Chair spoke about Georgia Gans the recipient of this year’s tuition assistance. She was presented a check for $500.00 at the August Board meeting (see separate story).
We’d like to thank our hosts Don Filiault and Walt Sullivan for another successful meeting.
Our next get together will be a holiday party after the Christmas Parade on Sunday, 12/08/19 will be held at ShoreWay Acres. Details will be provided early November. Logo wear will be available for sale at that event or if needed sooner by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
