Gazebo Dining

Like most outdoor dining, The BYC Gazebo is officially open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  We do try to "extend" the summer however, by having it open on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to dusk in September (weather depending) for all to enjoy.  As we cannot predict Mother Nature, she seems to have really "jump started" the Fall this year, so it appears that *this weekend will be the last of the gazebo for the season.  Come visit Laura, Bryan and Dan to say a fond farewell...

 *should this change we will notify you via email, as you never know what weather will be tossed our way...

Simply Delish!

Please keep an eye out for information about our upcoming Fall Wine Dinner.  It was a huge success last year and I imagine it will be just as popular once again. More details coming soon...

Stop by the club and enjoy some delicious creations from our creative and hard-working culinary staff, lead by Alan Knight. We will also have some new beverage selections that Laurie Hamilton, our Dining Room Manager, has been working on...Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale is here!  If you can't make it for dinner, swing by for lunch -it's much easier to see the harbor during the day!

As always, reservations are kindly recommended! Call the Front Desk to reserve your spot!

Scuttlebutt from the House
 
You will be seeing some new faces in the dining room as we continue to fill some slots left open from our college bound summer crew. Please help me in welcoming them to the BYC. Some might be a little nervous or shy at first (new job and all), so please take a moment to say hello and get to know them!

Gentle reminder...Please leave your keys in your car (or at the front desk) when parking in the lot. We need to have access to your vehicle(s) and be able to move them if and when necessary.

Britony Wells, General Manager

In Memoriam: Cile Johnson

Many of us will remember Cile Johnson, Wife of Leo Johnson, former BYC Fleet Captain. Cile, with Leo, was a great and generous friend. Janet and I cruised with them in the Summers of 2009 and 2010.  My apologies that this information was not available to us to get to you before Cile's services last Saturday. I touched base with Leo yesterday and asked if I could let the membership know these details.

Cile died unexpectedly at home with Leo on the evening of Monday September 1st. Her Obituary as published in the Salem News, reads as follows:

Mrs. Cecile Marie (Picard) Johnson 78, of Danvers, beloved wife of Leopoldo A. Johnson, died unexpectedly, Monday, September 1, 2014 at home.

Born in Boston, she was the daughter of the late Eugene and Elise (Babineau) Picard. She was raised and educated in Waltham and was a graduate of St. Vincent Hospital School of Nursing.

Mrs. Johnson had been employed as a nurse at Waltham Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and The Soldier’s Home in Chelsea. Most recently she worked as a private duty nurse with the Visiting Nurses Association until the time of her retirement. Nursing and the care of others was a role Mrs. Johnson embodied, both professionally and in her personal life.

A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Cecile was a longtime resident of the Town of Danvers. Along with her beloved husband, Cecile was an enthusiastic sailor and member of the Boston Yacht Club in Marblehead. She was an avid reader, but her greatest joy in her life was her family. She was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother who took great pride in providing a loving and warm home for all of her family to enjoy. She will be deeply missed by all.

In addition to her loving husband of 52 years, Cecile is survived by her daughters, Yolanda Milliman-Richard and her husband, Bruce Richard of Auburndale and Elena Brousseau and her partner, Anthony LaMonica of Danvers: her sons, Carlos Johnson and his fiancee, Isabel Latorre of Lowell and Theodore Johnson and his wife, Shannon of Salem; her grandchildren, Emily Johnson, Chloe Milliman, Max Milliman, Spencer Milliman, Celina Brousseau, Jaqueline Brousseau and Reese Johnson, her siblings, Claire Gundel and her husband, Carl of Needham, Eugene Picard of Wareham, Joseph Picard and his wife, Genevieve of Gloucester, Dianne McColgan and her husband, Steve of Plainville and several nieces and nephews. She was also the sister of the late Betty Picard.

Her funeral (was) held from the Peterson-O’Donnell Funeral Home, 167 Maple St., (Route 62), Danvers, Saturday, September 6, at8:15 a.m., followed by her funeral Mass in St. Mary of the Annunciation Church, Conant St., Danvers at 9 a.m. Burial (was) in Walnut Grove Cemetery, Danvers. In lieu of flowers, expression of sympathy may be made in Cecile’s memory to the Paralyzed Veterans of America, 801 18th St., NW, Washington, DC 20006. To share a memory or to offer a condolence, please visit www.odonnellfuneralservice.com.
