The Waukegan | Joseph Conrad Yacht Club Social Committee met on Tuesday, Aug 28 and set dates for our Fall and Winter calendar to the end of the year.
Please mark your calendar for these upcoming events and support as many as you can. The Club cannot continue to operate if members do not support our activities. Paying your dues on time is not enough to keep the doors open and keep the club financially healthy. We need the participation of all members in our activities and events, too.
If you don’t see an activity you like, please join us at our next Social Committee meeting and suggest an event or activity that you would support. All suggestions are welcome!
