Employee My name is Dual Clark, your new Food & Beverage Director
at LHPYC. I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, and
Spotlight currently live in Lake Worth with my wife, Amy, and our two
children, Tayler (8) and Hunter (6). When not at work, you
Dual Clark will find me spending time with the family by the water,
chauffeuring children to and from karate and gymnastics, and
either dining out or cooking at home. Both Food AND
Beverage are true passions of mine, especially wine! (In Vino

My first restaurant was at a sports bar in downtown
Knoxville, TN While attending the University of Tennessee,
and it was there that the hospitality bug bit me. I relocated to
Jacksonville, FL, in search of warm weather, beaches, and
excitement. After a few jobs at local Mom & Pop restaurants, I
stumbled into an opportunity with the Carrabba's family as
they were being franchised. Over the course of three years, I
was very fortunate to be a part of their expansion and was on
the new opening team for both Mobile, AL and Hilton Head,
SC restaurants.

I moved back to Nashville to be closer to my family and,
seeking a fresh start, took an opportunity to work at the
original Houston's across from Vanderbilt University. While I
always knew it to be a busy restaurant, I was unaware of the
extensive training and discipline in upholding their

standards. Nevertheless, it was an
incredible experience, spending almost
three years there.

An unusual opportunity posed itself,
having me return to South Florida. It was
a sales job over-promised and
under-delivered, and I soon found
myself looking to return to the food and
beverage world. I recently took up the
game of golf and found a restaurant
manager position offering free golf as a
perk. It was at a country club and
industry I was familiar with, and I had no idea what I was in for. I spent the next
nine years working for the country's most prominent and number one country
club, Boca West. During a major renovation project, they needed to downsize
their management team, and they helped to place me at the club at Ibis in West
Palm Beach. I was quickly promoted from restaurant manager to Director of
banquets, overseeing nearly $7 million in private function revenue annually.

After a few years, I was approached with an opportunity to take over as
Director of Food and Beverage at Boca Woods Country Club, where I oversaw
day-to-day club operations for nearly 3 1/2 years.

Now, I find myself joining a fantastic team of professionals and what is already
proven to be a lovely membership here at LHPYC. I am thrilled to be selected to
be an integral part of the club at such an exciting time. Thank you so much for
having me!

1. Make sure to have a plan for your boat that your
insurance company approves. It is suggested that
vessels be removed from the water and to have it
stored as far offshore as possible.

2. If you stay in the Marina or on the water at your home,
it is suggested to double up all your lines (Four aft &
Spring lines). Be sure to check that all dock cleats are
strong and appropriately installed.

3. Ensure all your Marina documents, insurance policy,
and critical contact information are copied and stored
in a safe location or database that can be accessed

4. Take pictures of your boat before and after a storm,
primarily if any damage has been incurred!

5. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best! Don't wait
until the last minute!

As a reminder, if you are keeping a car on property it is
required for you to register your vehicles with the Marina or
Membership Office to keep your car overnight on property.
Please stop by at your convenience Tuesday through
Saturday between 10AM and 5PM. In addition, we are still
in the process of resurfacing our perimeter dock. We will be
notifying each marina slip holder as to how to access your
dock and which path to take as the resurfacing moves east
around the property. Shout out to the Youth Department
and Gary for all his efforts over the summer with aiding our
Summer Activities Program with all their fishing!

WWII Veteran Tribute Wine

On Veteran’s Day 2021, Caymus Vineyards released the first ever, WWII Veteran Tribute Wine.
The wine that they chose to use with this label, is the finest wine that Caymus makes. (Special
Selection-- $190/bottle at Total Wine).However, the fact that only 500 bottles of this limited-edition
wine were made, makes the value $500+ per bottle. *At live auction in Tampa last month, the
bottles were auctioned at $1,500/per bottle.
This is not only the 1st ever WWII Tribute bottle, it’s with a wine that can be drank today (or aged in
your cellar for 20yrs). It’s a great gift to give to a friend, family member, or client that appreciates
wine and has special ties to WWII.
Additionally, there is a QR code on the back of the bottle, which gives a short film of the 18yr old
kids on the front of the bottle, showing what they did in the war and after the war as well. It is truly
a remarkable wine bottle to own.
Lighthouse Point Yacht Club was lucky enough to secure 5 of these bottles to auction off (exclusively
to our Members).
The best point of all of this: 100% of every penny raised goes to serve more of our Nation’s oldest WWII, Korean War, and
Vietnam War Heroes through 501c3 Honor Flight.
So please purchase as many raffle tickets as you can because win or not, every penny will go to such an incredible cause.Tickets
will be $20 per entry, and you can purchase as many as you’d like.

painting the American Flag: & either as art, whether it’s
patriotic, political, or for purely artistic value.
Before talking about the artists, I would like to thank Terry
Paterson and Jessica Easterling for the opportunity to
operate and share all the original art with the members and
their guests of the LHPYC. Also to Julia Robinson for
producing my articles and Diane Elliott for watching over
the gallery.

The early American Flag was not a stand alone original design that Betsey Ross & George Washington
was sprung up out of nowhere, it was the culmination of important
historical events and artistic meaning with roots aging back to
England. The Betsy Ross American flag was heavily inspired by
the British flag. It is commonly accepted by historians that the
Grand Union flag was the first American flag but in an unofficial
capacity. It is strikingly similar to today’s flag. The first stars and
stripes American Flag would keep the religious stripes not only to
represent the original thirteen colonies but the rebellious nature of
the colonists as well. - The Epoch Times

Jon McNaughton is America’s foremost conservative artist.
McNaughton strives to paint images that express his ideas and beliefs.
Viewers from around the globe write about the unique perspective of
these paintings that seem to tap into the heart of American Patriotism.
"The purpose of my painting is to communicate my ideas. American
politics is filled with nuance and shades of grey, but I see the world
through a prism of light and truth. My art reflects who I am and
doesn’t use nuance or shades of grey to make my point. I want future
generations to know exactly how I felt during this time in our
country’s history.” Washington Examiner

McNaughton’s “Crossing the Swamp” literally crosses a new
boundary into uncharted territory of contemporary conservative art.

Crossing the Swamp

In 1954, Jasper Johns began painting what would become one of his signature
emblems, the American flag. As an iconic image comparable to the targets,
maps, and letters that he also has depicted. Johns realized that the flag was
seen and not looked at, not examined. The execution and composition of
Three Flags elicit close inspection, he said.

The painting draws attention to the process of it’s making through Johns’ use Three Flags
of encaustic, a mixture of pigment suspended in warm wax that congeals as
each stroke is applied, resulting in a accumulation of discrete marks that
creates a sensuous, almost sculptural surface, adds to its complexity. The trio

of flags projects outward, contradicting classical perspectives in which objects
appear instead to recede from the viewer’s vantage point. By shifting the
visual emphasis from the flag’s emblematic meaning to the geometric
patterns and texture of the picture surface,Johns explores the boundary
between abstraction and representation. As he remarked, this painting

allowed him to go beyond the limits of the flag, and to have different canvas


Keith Haring was an American artist who emerged from the
subculture of the 1980s. His pop art animated-imagery has become
a widely recognized visual language. Haring’s popularity grew
from his spontaneous drawings in New York City Subway’s chalk
outlines of figures, dogs, and other stylized images on blank black
advertising spaces.
After gaining public recognition, he created colorful larger scale
murals, many commissioned. He produced more than 50 public
artworks between 1982 and 1989, many of them created voluntarily
for hospitals, day care centers and schools. In 1986, he opened the
Pop Shopas an extension of his work. His later work often
conveyed political and societal themes, anti-crack, antiapartheid,
safe sex, homosexuality and AIDS through his own iconography.

In this, yet another election year, it would be great to take a moment and contemplate our flag and freedoms
as envisioned in the creation of our country. Wishing you all a safe and happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday with the ones they love. We have officially
entered into the summer (if you couldn’t tell) and it is HOT! But that is no surprise to any of us that have been living in
Florida for years. I know many of you have the good fortune to travel during the summer on boats to beautiful islands but
please don’t forget about your stretching and fitness routine! Our classes will be going strong until we get the word that
the demolition that will close down our beautiful class room. Until then I want to keep encouraging you to get to class or
into the gym! **Reminder the fitness center (across from the pool) will remain open during construction except for the brief
time period during the demo of the main building which will be unsafe for us to access the property. Please stay up to date
on the latest happenings with our weekly Eblasts.


I’m so excited to see all the familiar faces at our youth Summer Activities! The silver lining to the clubhouse not being
demolished this summer was that we got to get one more year of our famous Summer Activities Program in! It takes a lot
of staff to plan and execute an entire summer of fun with your kiddos so please make sure you let them know how much
appreciate them. If anyone is unfamiliar with how our summer program works I can tell you in 3 words….Just show up!
We do not require you to reserve a spot just show up at 9am in the morning and Ms. Katie and Ms. Ingrid will be happy to
take the little ones and let you go on your way! We also have ½ day options so if you want to pick up or drop off at lunch
that is totally fine as well. If you have questions please reach out. Our Summer Activities Program will run until the end of
July. However, as we move into our construction era some August, I want to assure all of you we will have Little Skippers
available but by RSVP only. In addition, the Youth Committee and the Club will continue to place fun events for the
LHPYC Kiddos! [email protected]
