The MYCAuxiliary is an ancillary arm of the Marathon Yacht Club that functions with the sanction of the Marathon Yacht Club Board of Governors. It was formed in 2006 as a volunteer group of people willing to help with the necessary activities and functions of the Club to the benefit of all members. Thus, the “Helping Hands” in the burgee shown on the letterhead here.
All MYC members and their spouses or significant others are welcome to join this volunteer group. Dues are currently $5.00 per year and become payable in February of each fiscal Club year. Meetings are in the Club, once a month, at 11:00 am on the first Thursday of each month. Many then stay for lunch at the conclusion of the meeting. If you are residing in Florida only part of the year, you may still be a member and participate when you are available. Come to a meeting and get acquainted. Find out how your talents can be a wonderful resource in the Club.
Among the contributions to the Club from MYC Auxiliary are:
- Pool/patio furniture
- Drapes in the dining room
- Ceiling fan lights in the main dining room
- Camera used to record Club functions
- New privacy drapes in all dining areas
- New speaker’s podium
- Large screen flat panel TV, cabinet, and DVD player
- Memorial brick pavers in the courtyard
- Various purchases of equipment for the kitchen and elsewhere in the Club
In addition to fund raising in the form of Raffles, Luncheons, Auctions and Fashion Shows, members of MYC Auxiliary help to label and mail the monthly Bell newsletter, perform various functions for special events, help in the Club office when needed, and assist the entertainment committee when needed.
We urge you to become a member by filling out the form on the "Application" page. Make out a check for $5.00 payable to MYC AUXILIARY and mail to Marathon Yacht Club, 825 33rd Street, Marathon, FL 33050, or simply drop off the completed envelope in the office next time you are at the Club. Better still, just come to our next meeting and get acquainted!
We would like to have you as a member of this important adjunct to the Marathon Yacht Club.
