Community Food Pantry Donation
Each year Haven Harbour Marina employees contribute their time and money to a group donation or community service project during the holiday season. In past years we have collected toys for children, sent care packages to troops, made blankets for seniors, etc. This year we made a group donation to the Kent County Community Food Pantry of 245 pounds of food and $300.00. The Food Pantry provides supplemental food to persons in Kent County with limited incomes. Every year, especially around the holidays, the demand for food is greater. If you would like to help or contribute to our donation, please drop off non-perishable food items to the marina office by December 6, 2013. Thank you.
And The Winner Is....
CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Richard Savini, the owner of "Jema Duo" in R60, and Steve Butler, the owner of "Radio Waves" in R36, for being our August and September slip card drawing WINNERS!
Richard's card was drawn from the collection of completed August slip cards, and Steve's from the completed September slip cards. If you are not familiar, the Slip Card stations are located on the dock boards at the end of each dock. We ask the slipholders to complete one of these cards each time their vessel is going to be out of the slip overnight. These cards assist us with transient placement and help ensure that their slip is open when they return. Each month we will be drawing a winner from the completed cards. Don't miss your chance to win!!
Construction is complete! Stop by the Marine Store/Ditty Bag and Reception Center to check out these
newly renovated areas. The store has been revamped and we have installed a brand new, custom built point-of-sale workstation area, designed to look like the transom and hull of a vessel. This new workstation has been designed to house all store personnel in a central location. Diana Williams, our Parts Clerk, as well as, our store Sales Associates, Bob Celuska and Beverly Jones, are enjoying this new area. The creation of this new central workstation will allow us to bring some popular stock items from the second floor downstairs to make them more accessible.
The second floor of the Reception Center is being completely remodeled as well to become a premier
indoor customer lounge area. While Hal Hopkins, our Dockmaster's office/desk remains in this area, the rest of the space is available for customers to sit and/or eat at the new bar area, read the paper, or watch the weather or a football game in the comfortable sitting area, both with flat-screen TVs. We will also be using this new area to show our Friday night movies, in a cool, bug-free environment. Next movie is schedule for Friday, July 26th!
