Kent Narrows Sail and Power Squadron Holds Meeting

100_1339 (400 x 245)Kent Narrows Sail and Power Squadron held its November membership meeting at Kentmorr Restaurant.   Following a social hour and dinner the featured speaker of the evening was Tom Leigh, Chester Riverkeeper.  Tom talked about the health of the river and its tributaries, most of which are in Kent and Queen Anne’s counties where most of the membership in the squadron resides.  He talked about his role as an educator and as an enforcer of environmental laws.   A question and answer period following his talk was both lively and informative.  For information about the Chester River Association visit www.chesterriverassociation.org or if you have questions contact Tom by e-mail at riverkeeper@chesterriverassociation.org.

Every fall, just before Thanksgiving, KNSPS members bring food to their membership meeting to help our local food bank at Living Waters in Stevensville.  We delivered our donations the following day and they were gratefully received.   KNSPS also actively participates in the Adopt-a-Bear program.  This year, as in the past, Julie Tompkins of Grasonville distributed the children’s names to members and is responsible for delivering the bags to the local distribution point.  This is an important program that gives many of our local children a Christmas that they might not otherwise have.

KNSPS is a boating organization that is open to boaters of all ages, boat ownership is not a requirement; there are many activities during the course of the year…some social, some educational, and some, as above, community service.  We welcome prospective members to contact our membership chairman, Jack Yeigh 410 643-2106…and to join us at one of our activities to learn more about what we do and to make new friends in the boating community.  Visit our website at www.uspsd5.org…select Kent Narrows from the bar on the right.
