Thanksgiving Event

BLYC Auxiliary Invites You to a Thanksgiving Event!

The BLYC Auxiliary is starting the holiday season with a Thanksgiving program about giving to our Buckeye Lake community.  We invite all auxiliary and club members to attend our meeting on November 9th at 7:00 PM to hear two speakers. 

*Chuck Moore, director of the Newark Food Network, will speak about the Buckeye Lake LEADS Center that serves the Buckeye Lake community.  Mr. Moore will discuss the need in our local village and describe how the food network provides for the Buckeye Lake food pantry.

*Our second speaker is our own Joe Campbell who coordinates the BLYC Good Neighbor program.  Mr. Campbell will explain how our club members can help support the Christmas gift project that provides presents for needy children in the Buckeye Lake community.

During the months of November and December, we are requesting that all BLYC members bring donations to the club for the Buckeye Lake food pantry.  Please place cans of soup, peanut butter, jelly and personal care items in the basket located at the main door entry by the showcase. 

Auxiliary members will be meeting for dinner in the dining room beginning at 5:30PM and ordering from the menu.  All are welcome to join us by calling the club for a reservation and saying you are sitting with the Auxiliary in the dining room.

We thank you in advance for your generous gifts to both the Buckeye Lake LEADS food pantry and the Good Neighbor Program! 

We are thankful for the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club members and families!

White Hot Summer NighT

 July 2, 2017                                                               

Dear BLYC Family,

Announcing the 2017 BLYC Auxiliary annual Auction Fundraiser Party, White Hot Summer NighT – Saturday August 26.  This annual event makes it possible for the Auxiliary to fund improvements to the club, children’s club events and support local community charitable events.  Just this year it funded the new carpeting for the New Cupola Lounge, Front Entry, Stairs and the Dining Room!  And in other years working with the Board of Governors, the Auxiliary purchased the outdoor sound system, rocking chairs, dining room chairs, gas grill and much more. 

Last year we had tremendous success with our Live and Silent auctions due to the many creative and generous donations of our members and sponsors.
