Board Members for 2019

The Lanark Village Boat Club Incorporated (Boat Club) was formed in 1961 as a non-profit social club and continues to be an important part of the Lanark Village community. In addition to operating the boat launching facilities, the Boat Club coordinates numerous events annually for members and the general public:

New Year’s Day     Memorial Day     Spring and Fall Bazaar     Mother’s and Father’s Day

4th of July     Labor Day     Monthly Pancake Breakfast     Resident Member     Christmas Party

Christmas Day Dinner

Without the Board oversight and members assistance, these events would not be offered. The officers of the Board of Directors (Board) are volunteers and serve for a one-year period – January 1 through December 31.


Whether you have been a long-time resident; are totally new to the Lanark Village area; or currently are a weekender, consider this opportunity. Being on the Board is not a full-time job. Being a part of the Board is a very rewarding experience and a good way to give back to the community.

For 2019 there are now two vacant positions to still be filled - the Secretary position and the Ways and Means position.  Note that without the Ways and Means Chairperson position filled, events like the monthly Pancake breakfast may not be held.  The Ways and Means Chairperson coordinates with a number of volunteer members (there is a list) to put on events. 

If you have any questions or would like an overview of the duties and responsibilities of any Board position, 

submit questions through the email address at this website. You can also contact the Commodore at (850) 510-4671, or by email at [email protected] .
