CSYC Work Day April 16, 2016
CRESCENT WORK DAY
The sunny weather was the nicest in recent memory for Crescent's 2016 spring workday. The water level in Lake St. Clair was the highest in several years as measured by the barely visible outlet on Lake Shore opposite the beach. Lunch was outstanding as usual.
Spring and fall work days are a longstanding tradition at Crescent. Eighteen work hours per year are required each year in order to qualify for a wet or dry mooring at the club. Virtually all Crescent maintenance is accomplished by members who have a variety of skills including professional engineers, electricians, designers, architects, welders, mechanics, landscapers, gardeners, painters, information techies and many others.
An amazing number of projects are accomplished on Crescent work days. Some of the projects this year included reinforcing the outer harbor sea wall, painting the sea wall, a variety of electrical work, repairing a toilet in the men's room, trimming trees and shrubbery, maintaining and launching club committee boats, Cal 20s and Flying Scots, launching the floating docks, tending the flower gardens, replacing one or more toe docks and a variety of others. A fair amount of socializing occurs also along with the work projects. Some even enjoyed a beer on the club at the end of the day.
