Letter to the editor: Business' support of yacht club appreciated

One of the special things about the Crosslake area is the fact that so many organizations and events are volunteer driven. But one thing you need for those volunteer organizations to survive is community support, especially from the local businesses.

One of the special things about the Crosslake area is the fact that so many organizations and events are volunteer driven. But one thing you need for those volunteer organizations to survive is community support, especially from the local businesses.

Today I would like to thank Moonlite Bay Restaurant for its very generous support for the Whitefish Chain Yacht Club. The WCYC is the primary beneficiary of the Moonlite Bay Cardboard Boat Races held each August.

The WCYC has a focus to promote boating safety on the water. This is accomplished by providing swimming lessons, youth boating classes and Women at the Helm classes each summer. The other main focus is to provide the funding for the 100-plus navigation buoys on the Whitefish Chain.

Thank you, Moonlite, and we look forward to Aug. 11, 2018, for the eighth annual Cardboard Boat Race.

John Pribyl, Crosslake
