This is what community means

March 31, 2016

I like being a part of a community.

I like being around people with the same passions and joys as me.

I like people who come together for the common good.

Shilshole Bay Yacht Club (SBYC) is a great example of a fantastic community. Ever since my first event I was hooked by the quality of people and their community. Both on and off the water I have found SBYC members to be warm and caring.

Recently I needed to mow my lawn. My lawn was not your typical overgrown lawn. Due to my property holding water I was not able to walk across the lawn without sinking at least an inch. By the time we had enough warm dry days in a row to make the lawn safe to walk on the lawn had become a jungle. I could barely see my dogs when they went outside!

Unfortunately my mower was not up to the job, and the weed whacker would have taken all day. SBYC member Anne to the rescue! Anne lives lives nearby and when I asked if she had a lawn mower I could borrow she agreed without a seconds hesitation or questions.

Using Anne’s beefy lawn mower allowed me to trim back the jungle in a couple hours, instead of days. I even had to make two passes with the first on the highest setting.

Thank you Anne for being a part of the SBYC community, and thank you SBYC for creating and promoting a wonderful community!
