How lovely to have more familiar faces with us back at the Harbor! We are delighted to see Timothy and Susan Carpenter here for a few days from Darien, CT. George and Suzanne Belcher of Montpelier, VT are here for the weekend to celebrate their Anniversary, and we wish them many more happy years to come! From New York, NY we welcome Michael and Carrie Walsh as they join other members of the Walsh Reunion. Good to see you all again!
BHC wishes a very special Happy Birthday to Connor Dolan from Bernardsville, NJ, who will be celebrating his 14th birthday at the Harbor. Have a good one!
Congratulations to all who participated in the Basin Harbor Triathlon! Honors for Top Male and Top Female belonged, respectively, to Max Bicknell with a time of 17:39, and Lisa Hass, who came in just after her son Ethan! Our 4-part Top Female Team this week consisted of Grace Murphy, Regan Murphy, Stella Clarke, and Katie Kyle. The honor for Top Male Team belonged to Connor Dolan and Mischa Moffly, who set a new Basin Harbor Record for Top Team with their time of 15:08! Way to go! Special recognition goes out to 9-year-old participant Caroline McCurdy, and to Louis Vilarin who finished the race with his son Andrew, age 5. We loved seeing all you Basin Harborites out there!
Need a break from the rigors of outdoor enjoyment? The Champlain Lounge might be just the place to gather to cool off this afternoon! Not only can you rent board games from the Front Desk, but there are also DVDs and videos to check out. Constantin will be waiting to make you a delicious beverage in the air-conditioned lounge as you gather for a game of cards with the family.
A Photography Ordering Session will be held in the Club Room from 8:30am to 11am. All candid images from this week will be on sale: 25% off! So, whether you are ordering from candids, our family portraiture specials or a private session, stop by and meet with Ann-Marie to view samples, ask questions and place your orders.
Have you tried out the brand new YOLO boards at the Waterfront this year? Stand-up Paddling has never been more exhilarating, so head on down to see Tom and the gang, and rent a YOLO today!
Get ready for a Friday night of delight! After watching your favorite friends perform their best talents at the Basin Harbor Talent Show, head to the Red Mill for a few live sets by The Ryan Hanson Band, covering hits from decades past and present. See you there!
