Over the past week a number of house items have been discarded at the club, a glider was left in the dumpster and dining chairs at the point. This is a reminder to the membership that it takes a lot of volunteers, effort and a great deal of time to keep our club clean and to maintain its high standard of appearance. What the club is not is a dumping ground, or free trash service, we pay for our trash service which reflects in your dues. Leaving household furniture degrades the experience of being a member of the Mount Vernon Yacht Club. Please dispose of household belongings through you neighborhood trash services, or as we have done, give the items to a charity for reuse.
