Since the beginning of the The Bay Yacht Club, members have offered to cook meals on weekends to facilitate Club camaraderie and to raise funds for the club. Currently, the general weekend meal schedule is on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. the last weekend of the month and on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. on the remaining weekends of each month. Participation in the cooking is voluntary and attendees donate $7.50 per meal to the club.
Members also gather to celebrate designated holidays and special events throughout the year and food service is often a part of the celebration. The event times and recommended donation are variable.
