I've written e-mail to most members who berth or live in Region 53, soliciting for volunteers to; #1, Chair the Mid-America Boat Show, held in Cleveland,OH every January, and #2, to fill many of our vacant Port Captain & Deputy Captain positions. I'm adding this communications venue to include any members I may have missed. Our Region has an enviable track record of volunteers stepping up to the plate, to do their part. Won't you join us? If "giving-back", interest you, or if you would like to "monitor," a port, please don't hesitate to contact me, I promise you this, it will be fun & gratifying, and I personally pledge my unwavering support ! I can be reached @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Safe seas always. Rich Barzyk, Rear Commodore, Region 53.
