Celebration of Life: Ursula Cody:
On Saturday, May 13th, from 1:00 to 6:00 pm, there will be a Celebration of Life event in the clubhouse for Ursula Cody. Her husband Greg will be hosting the event and we will be joined by many of her friends and family including her fellow members from Sequoia Yacht Club.

The format is an “open house” and you are invited to stop in anytime during the afternoon. There will be German food and beer and Ursula’s favorite Oompah Band. 

At precisely 4:00 pm we will honor Ursla’s memory with 8-Bells to acknowledge the change of watch.

Members of The Club should RSVP here where they may also leave a message of condolence.
