At SRYC’s December meeting, two members received special honors.
Commodore Eric Jensen presented Bernie Sexton, member since 1988, with a special service award. Bernie served the club in a leadership capacity for 28 years, including four years as Commodore. Bernie’s current term as Rear Commodore expires at the end of the year.
Kevin Kwiat was awarded the Boater of the Year Award for 2018 in recognition of his tireless effort leading this year’s harbor dredging project. Kevin researched the problem, found an appropriate solution and brought it to the Board. Following Board approval, Kevin procured the equipment, tested it and put it to work. He even trained several members to operate the dredge, expanding the circle of helpers. Congratulations, Kevin, on a well-deserved award.
