Chesapeake Bay Chapter- ACBS get together
Saturday December 20 was an evening of fun with great food, classic boats, and good friends. Maryann Fiaschetti--multi-term chair of our annual St. Michaels Classic Boat Festival and Past-President of our chapter—hosted us at her home.
You immediately knew you were in the right place, welcomed at the driveway by both a fiberglass classic outboard boat and a wood inboard Chris Craft. Add to that the “new” lit-up-for-the-holidays rig owned by Chuck Warner and Linda Nagle-Warner affectionately named the “Toy-Hauler”. We were off to a great start!
Now, for the food and friends. Conversation-starting unusual Christmas sweaters were a big topic. Newly elected Chapter President George Hazzard wore a sweater hand-decorated with paper by his daughter, Rachael. All four members of Jim and Toni Schiller’s family came with really unique sweaters but left their fiberglass classic Chris Craft at home.
It was a great mix of long-time as well as recent members. Everyone was glad to see both Paul Warner-- one of our chapter founders--and Howard Johnson, even though their spouses (Sandy & Cheryl) couldn’t join us. Other legacy CBC members included Chuck warner & Linda Nagle-Warner, Steve & Nancy Smith, Dan & Kathy Wilson, Will & Ann Biddle, Ray& Della Glenn, and the Donleys. More recent members in attendance who’ve been eager to get more involved included Denny & Millie Cutler (2015 CBC Boat Festival Kids’ Programs), Chris Kretch (webmaster), and Bruce Ogden.
Several people commented on how they enjoyed the tasty Asian salad brought by Lois and Jim Duffy. Linda and Alex Koloski’s dessert was a hit, too. (It was so good, that Seabuddy stepped outside so no one noticed his third portion!) Della Glenn brought a wonderful pineapple themed appetizer. Maryann’s chili and seabuddy’s Swedish meatballs were gobbled up quickly. Meanwhile, Howard shared his copies of the Stuffing Box that he and Cheryl edit quarterly on behalf of the chapter. Stephanie Ryan qualified for “the farthest traveled” designation.
