Welcome to the Yale Club of the Suncoast - ALL EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
Dear fellow members of the Yale Suncoast community,
It will come as no surprise that we have cancelled our local Yale Club activities for the rest of the season in light of the growing need for social distancing. We very much regret that the corona virus pandemic makes this necessary. We will be back in touch when new plans can be firmed up. We hope to be be able to hold our monthly summer drop-in lunches at Marina Jack’s on the second Tuesday of each month, starting in June. We will see.
Your board is making tentative plans for a robust 2020-2021 season of events starting in the fall with our welcome back cocktail party on Sunday October 25th. Because we will be unable to hold our annual meeting in April as scheduled, we will postpone voting for directors and officers until the October event.
Please stay in touch with your Yale friends and colleagues by email and phone. You might even think about taking a free Yale course with your newly found free time. Here is the link for Professor Laurie Santos’ hugely popular “The Science of Well-Being.”
Boola Boola and stay well!
Richard S. Lannamann ES ’69
Yale Club of the Suncoast celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2017 having been founded in 1957 as the Yale Club of Sarasota. The association operates to connect Yale alumni in Sarasota and the surrounding counties. Its purpose is to foster a spirit of fraternity among graduates, former students, parents and grandparents of present and past students and friends of Yale University.
Speaker luncheons are held from November to May at the Sarasota Yacht Club on the second Tuesday of every month. Other special events are held on weekends to allow working members to participate. Monthly “drop-in” luncheons are also held during the summer.
