Commodore John Pribyl introduced a new initiative to raise funds from members and visitors so that all buoys in the Whitefish Chain of Lakes are lighted.

"We received $1,000 from Jesse and Rich Eide of Moonlite Bay Restaurant, from the cardboard boat races in August. We are using these funds to kick-start our fundraising to buy and retrofit our existing buoys to all being lighted to assist in nighttime navigation. Our objective is to raise $10,000 from our community so that the WCYC can continue to promote water safety by providing these buoys in the chain," Pribyl said.

The WCYC will match individual contributions up to a total of $10,000.
