weekly newsletter, Lakeside Story, was born out of a desire to connect the
boating community in Crowley in new
and different way. We discussed publishing monthly or weekly and finally
decided that if we were going to make the commitment to the community, we would
provide more meaningful articles in a weekly newsletter. So, weekly it has
Our hope is that you, the boaters of
are enjoying the newsletter. It wouldn’t go out each week without help from
across the boatyard. Various people provide pictures of the week and ideas for
the articles that you read. A couple of guys do the proofreading and without
them, the articles that you read would certainly be more cumbersome. Chicago
As the end of the boating season approaches, we want to put to you a question. What articles do you want to read over the winter? My vote is to send me to the
Caribbean to report on the winter
boating activities there. Some have suggested that we follow some projects
through the shops over the winter so that you can have some insight into the
process of winter boat repairs. Let us know your article ideas and we will do
our best to get them written.
As you have noticed, we have changed from our original format of structured articles each month. Having flexibility to publish different stories, I think, has led to more interesting topics. Hopefully, you agree.
In response to a reader’s suggestion, we started adding the picture of the week to our blog, The Crowley Advisor, in a larger format so that you can actually see what is going on in the picture. Keep the suggestions coming so that we can continue to upgrade our newsletter and blog. Also, send along your boating upcoming events so that we can include them in our newsletter.
