SAD NEWS: Past Commodore Arnold “Arnie” Rupke has passed away. Arne was our Commodore for the 1986-87 Club year during one of it’s last “booming” years when the Club Restaurant was one of only four “Better” places to eat here. PC Rupke was known for his enthusiastic participation in the Club, especially at our social events; he was a serious salesman for the BYC and all it stood for, and although he had health issues during the last years of his life, he remained interested in the Club and its welfare, staying involved through the Blue Gavel/Past Commodore’s organization. Our prayers are with his family as they deal with their loss. Services are being held tomorrow, Wednesday 2/5, 2 p.m., Third Christian Reformed Church in Lynden, 514 Liberty St.
