Wildwood Sailing Club
On August the 21st, following the Fun Rally, club members held the traditional August Club Supper and also took the opportunity to pay tribute to Peter Case, longtime member of the Wildwood Sailing Club. During his 28 year association with the club Peter was recognized for his many contributions to the club in addition to his love of sailing. Along with a number of past club members, Peter's daughter Pam and his son Michael were invited to be guests of the club for the supper and for the unveiling of the plaque which has been mounted inside the pavilion.
