Thank you to everyone who participated in the Fall Golf Tournament that took place on September 10th at Legends on the Niagara in Niagara Falls. Thanks to the 73 golfers and numerous sponsors, we were able to raise some additional funds for our Good Works Program.
The event may have looked a little different than usual but it was wonderful to be able to bring industry together for a social event after not being able to do so for six months! The weather was cooperative and everyone followed health and safety protocols. The money raised at this event along with contributions through corporate membership will allow us to continue supporting programs that our industry needs.
After careful consultation with our members and many discussions as a Board – we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Peninsula Party and the 2021 Annual Dinner. Following the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, travel and provincial restrictions in place and overwhelming concerns about the virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed.
We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold these events but believe that it is the right decision. As the pandemic situation continues to evolve, the Marine Club will assess events for 2021 and modify as appropriate. We are open to ideas and encourage suggestions being passed to any of the directors.
The Board of Directors looks forward to being able to host you, when and where it is safe to do so in the future. In the meantime, we appreciate your understanding.
Keep well and stay safe.
The Marine Club
