The Navy Yacht Club Everett

The official commissioning date for the Navy Yacht Club Everett was 21 November 1996. NYCE was an outgrowth of the Marina Patrons Advisory Committee which was formed to address issues of boat owners with vessels moored at the Naval Station Everett Marina.

The first meeting of Navy Yacht Club Everett was held on 15 August 1996, with thirteen family memberships. The purpose of this meeting was to establish a club mission (fostering fellowship and safe boating) and to develop operational by-laws. NYCE by-laws were unanimously accepted by the Naval Station Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Advisory board on 16 October 1996 and approved by the base Commanding Officer, Captain Annette Brown, USN on 24 October 1996. The by-laws for Navy Yacht Club Everett and organizational charter became effective at the next general meeting which was held on 21 November 1996.

The elective commissioning officers were: Gene Dvornick, Commodore; George Secor, Vice-Commodore; and Chip White, Rear-Commodore. Members at Large included Athlene Schneider and Alex McKay-Green. Appointive officials included Dale Norris as Historian, John B. Bell as Treasurer and Barb White as Secretary. There were 44 plank owner memberships. Today there are remaining.
