IEYC New Year's Brunch Committee
IEYC celebrated their 38th Annual Change of Watch at the Belleair Country Club. Eighty-eight members and guests enjoyed a warm reception. Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, annual photo shoot by the Christmas tree, along with the beautifully decorated dining room with ornaments and poinsettias.
Before dinner, outgoing Commodore Fran Briskman spoke of the past year and its wonderful memories. She made two presentations: Joel Briskman for organizing the Memorial Lighted Boat Parade and Member of the Year, and Fay Nicholson for Editor of the Scuttlebutt and Member of the Year.
Jim Ostrosky, Master of Ceremony, did a wonderful job introducing and orchestrating this event along with committee members, Donis Campbell, Lorraine Pierce, Lee Tetrault, Nancy Lawrence, Gary and Carolyn Bookout, Edward and Jeannette Ziegler, Bess Bentler, and Patricia Ostrosky.
