Summer 2018 brings LBSC a new Commodore. Peri Wiseman succeeds Sandy Forsyth as head of the Club. We checked-in with Peri in February to find out more about her history with LBSC. Here’s what she said:
“Hi, I’m Peri…
I’m so honoured to be serving as the new Commodore of the Lake of Bays Sailing Club. My husband Sheldon and I have cottaged on Lake of Bays for more than 20 years. Our children, Micaela and Max, both spent their summers on the lake, joining LBSC as soon as they were old enough to enter Young Salts. They participated in a variety of programs at the Lake of Bays Tennis Club and at Bigwin Golf Club, too. Max is currently an LBSC coach; he really wishes I was not on the Board!
I became involved with the the sailing club before our children even attended the junior program. It began with Sheldon and me attending the Annual Dinner Dance, which led to his joining the board and my regular involvement in helping set up and run the dance. We have made so many dear friends along the way. I truly cherish my connection with LBSC!
For the past five years I’ve served on the Board of Directors. I’ve been the Junior Program Director for the past four. It is now my great privilege to serve as Commodore. I look forward to working with the very committed group of individuals that make up LBSC’s current Board of Directors.
I invite you to get involved with the Lake of Bays Sailing Club. Come to some of our social events this summer, enrol your kids and teens in junior programs, attend the August Regatta, or come for a sail! I guarantee you’ll make lasting summer friends.
I also invite you to join us Saturday, June 30 for Cheers to Summer, a casual meet-and-greet at the Club to kick off Summer 2018. Hope to see you then!”
