Mary Ann Cole (1996) SONATA
My interest in boating began when my husband, PC Dave Cole, and I purchased our first boat, a 25 foot Sea Ray Sundancer shortly after we were married. We were instantly hooked. We are currently enjoying our 40 foot Sundancer, “Sonata”. Early in our boating years, we were active members of the Saginaw Bay Power Squadron, and benefited greatly from the Squadron’s boater education opportunities. Along with our daughter, Anna (23) and our son, Matthew (16), we enjoy fun on the water and have created wonderful family memories together. We value the many friendships we’ve established through the Saginaw Bay Yacht Club. Along with enjoying the camaraderie, we firmly believe in doing our part to support & serve our Club. Personally, I value opportunities to serve the Club in several ways, including organizing the annual Coats for Kids Campaign and chairing the annual Action Auction. The Auction is a key source of revenue that enables members to enjoy Club amenities. I encourage all members to seek out one committee or activity to serve on/support. These opportunities build friendships and memories, and enable everyone to be a part of our Club’s success.
