This event has ended


October 8, 2022 @ 10:00 am 1:30 pm

We need helpers – but you must sign up! October 8th we need 25 volunteers for the annual island closing.

Please read the following carefully!

This activity is limited to 25 member participants, please click here to sign up.

Note that we ask everyone else to please NOT visit the island at this time as there will not be docks available and this needs to be a very focused activity.

Shuttle boats will leave the Excelsior pier docks at 10:00 and 10:15.

Please wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear as this activity will occur regardless of the weather (lightning maybe excepted). Work includes hauling and stacking of docks and dock accessories, moving and stacking tables, clearing the grounds of summer gear and preparing the property for 7 months of inactivity.

Lunch will be served after all work is completed but will be limited to only those participants who signed up for the event. Shuttle boats will return the participants to the excelsior docks at approximately 1:30 PM.

This event will work towards the 2022 fraternal merit mark category.

The last day all docks are planned to be in place is Sunday October 2nd, and their removal to shore will begin Monday 10/03/22. the back docks stay in year-round but water service and the restrooms will likely close for the year by mid-October. Thank-you for another great year – we look forward to our 2023 boating season!
