The LC/ACBS held its 2016 annual meeting on October 9th at the Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes, VT.  Roughly 50 chapter members enjoyed the company of fellow antique and classic boat enthusiasts, an excellent meal and a venue that all agreed that we would like to use for future events.

Don Swain, outgoing president, led the business portion of the meeting.  A copy of the minutes can be viewed by CLICKING HERE.
