First a special thanks to Bonnie Binneveld and Linday Weekley for chairing the Chili & Cornbread Pot Luck. They did this last year too and I know worked very hard to put this event together.

Come on over for a great night!  A special Sunday Chillin’ & Grillin’

The menu will be Chili and Cornbread

Sunday evening December 7th is the LBC sponsored “Leesburg Christmas on the Water” lighted boat parade.  We do not know how large the crowd at Venetian Gardens will be, but to keep the club secure we are instituting special procedures for this day only.  The gates will be locked and admittance will be through the front door only.

Members will be asked to put on their name badges and only 2 guests per member will be allowed. Wrist bands will be provided for guests.  Guests must accompany members and no guests will be admitted without the member being present.

When entering, you will be given a ticket that will enable you to vote for the best lighted boat of your choice.  Following the parade there will be an awards ceremony at the club.

Club opens at 5:30pm, Chili and cornbread 6pm – 8pm, parade at 6:30pm with the awards ceremony following.  Because of limited dock space we ask that only parade participants bring their boats. Car parking could be a problem. Extra parking is available at the lot beside Ford Press.
