Magister Navis Reception

Reservations are allowed from 2/12/2017 6:30:00 PM to 12/9/2017 6:30:00 PM

To All, 

Character by all measures is the most distinctive human trait. This one trait that is more important than anything else. This should be a citadel. It cannot be usurped as it is a fortress that cannot be encroached upon. It is the proof there are betterments beyond our frailties. A man/woman has to live with one's-self, and thus thereby by inclusion is in 'good company'. We, as the Membership of Columbia have resolved to honor those, through their steadfast longevity and devotion, who have honored us by allowing us into their enlightened 'good company'. 

Throughout the 125-years of Columbia, there has been an indispensable citadel of these members. On our Quasquicentennial, we will be bestowing the Magister Navis (Master of the Ship) upon our next group of honorees. 

Please join us aboard the Abegweit on December 9th, 2017 at 6:30 PM as we celebrate the following for their esteemed service:
- Mr. John Boyle
- Mr. Peter Goldman
- Mr. Larry Kwiat
- Mr. Joseph Svoboda

We will be presenting them, during the ceremony, with an aesthetic symbolic remembrance, and inscribing their names to a prominently placed plaque of merit.

Our honorees' strength and virtue is not only measured by their special exertions, but by their continued inspired devotion and being a citadel of admirable character-acts to the betterment of our community - which we embrace as our Columbia Yacht Club.

Thank you for your equitable consideration and kind time.Scott JohnsonVice Commodore
