Recent past meetings:
8 Feb 17 -
The meeting was held at the Fieldstone Inn (5986 S Transit Road, Lockport). The Commander updated us (14 present) on recent events. He then presented George McKinney with a certificate & a lapel pin honoring his 50 years of membership in USPS. A picture is on the photo page.
15 Sep 16 -
Meeting held at the Olcott Yacht Club to update members on the status of the upcoming merger. The Commander discussed the status of legal steps proceeding toward dissolution/merger. The Treasurer reported that there was just over $3000 in the checking account and CDs.
An inventory of squadron equipment is to be done to determine what we will transfer to the new group and what we will donate elsewhere. Possible donations were discussed to various groups. When the merger is in the final stages, a decision will be made.
It is going to take several months for the merger to occur. We will then all transfer into Swiftwater squadron. Swiftwater will then change its name to reflect the combined squadrons and create a new burgee.

A special membership meeting was held at Olcott YC. At the meeting, a motion was made and passed, that the Squadron shall undertake the process of merging with those other Western New York squadrons who also choose to merge.
