First and foremost we hope you, your family, your friends and loved ones are well in these difficult times. While certainly there are more important issues confronting our community than the upcoming summer season here at the LIYC, we certainly understand how much the LIYC community means to each and every one of you, and wanted to share our approach as to how we can get back to doing what we all love to do.
With all the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 rest assured your health and safety are our highest priority. We don't profess to have all the answers but do believe "business as usual" just doesn't fit the situation. In consult with local and state authorities, and in anticipation of an easing of the "pause" we have begun reconfiguring the club's common areas providing for social distancing. In anticipation of new guidelines for foodservice, Chef Matt has been developing new food choices for the snack shack, bar, and dining room menus. Diane is hard at work developing protocols for servers, cleaning staff, and bar service. Starting in May, Eric will be offering private family tours for those of you interested in joining the Club. Facility tours with information regarding Membership will be available on an appointment basis at your convenience. Please contact to schedule a tour and don't forget to wear your PPE!
As we eagerly await guidance on the lifting of restrictions we are fully committed to opening the club for you, your family, and friends when assured of your safety and health. Currently, the "pause" remains in effect through May 15th, but with encouraging news that we are "Flattening the Curve" we are preparing to host our annual opening ceremonies and barbeque over the Memorial Day Weekend. We are continuously monitoring the situation and will keep you, our LIYC family updated.
I also would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our members, for your continued support of the club in these most difficult times and share with you a commitment the owners have made to the staff; No members of the LIYC family have been or will be furloughed, no reduction in salary and no cut in benefits! This is only possible with the continued support from our Members who have renewed their Membership and for those of you who intend to renew your Membership, we thank you. Your continued support is vital to the club's survival and success. Stay healthy
