Those who have been with the Vallarta Yacht Club since the beginning remind us that since the early days, if we wanted something big for the club, generous members made a contribution towards the purchase.
Ever notice the chairs around the bar? Each one has a small plaque with the name of the member who donated the funds to purchase that chair.
Many other items around the club, like freezers, popcorn machine, sound systems, computers and other things were also donated by members who just wanted to make their club a little better. Members built VYC, one piece at a time.
Fernando Salcedo has issued a challenge to fellow members: Can we raise the funds to buy a large-screen TV for the club?
Fernando is one of those "go big or go home" type of guys - he wants to get a 60 inch TV so all those great events, movies and presentations can be seen LARGE! Think of the Super Bowl party we can have...
Fernando has already kicked things off with a contribution, and a few other members have also chipped in.
A "TV fund" has been started, and when enough has been contributed, we'll have a great new TV for the club.
If you want to help, and you are in town, just drop by the club and give Rudy your contribution. If you aren't in town, you can contribute via our PayPal account, by clicking HERE, and going to "Make a General Donation to the Club".
For more information, telephone the Vallarta Yacht Club, (322) 297-2222 or by email.
The Vallarta Yacht Club is located in Nuevo Vallarta next to the Paradise Village Mall.
