New Member Chris Ure and Sara Kirby moved to the Lighthouse Point area
in the spring of 2021 from Boca Raton after a failed attempt to
Spotlight downsize. They havealways heard great things about the area
and the Yacht Club. However, they have been blown away
with how welcoming and friendly everyone has been.
Lighthouse Point truly feels like ‘home’ for them.
Chris Ure & Sara Kirby Sara is a graduate of Purdue University “Boiler Up!” and Chris
is a graduate of the University of Florida. Sara had a very
successful career in marketing and hospitality and genuinely
enjoys her “retirement”. Chris is a serial entrepreneur with
several business interests including an investment management
and financial planning firm and a botanical disinfectant and
cleaning solutions company where he is fully engaged
operationally. Chris also has other business interests including
a leisure apparel manufacturer and an artificial intelligence
technology platform focused on the restaurant industry.
Both Chris and Sara spent the majority of their childhoods in
South Florida, Sara in Fort Lauderdale and Chris in Boca.
Schooling and careers took them out of state at various times
but currently they split their time between Lighthouse Point
and Charlevoix, MI. Northern Michigan is where Sara spent her
summers growing up and a place Chris had fond memories
throughout his childhood. Both Sara and Chris have family
roots in the Midwest and love being able to enjoy the best of
both worlds – Lighthouse Point in the winter and Charlevoix
MI in the summer!
Chris is an avid golfer. Sara enjoys golf but rarely makes it past
9 holes and never without a cocktail. Although Sara recently
picked up tennis, both Chris and Sara enjoy the game and are
hoping to develop better habits from their lessons with
Boating is also a shared passion and one they look forward to
doing more both here and in Michigan. They currently have a
37’ Formula in Michigan and have recently ordered a 36’ power
catamaran for Florida with hopes of easy afternoon outings as
well as venturing frequently to the Bahamas. Over the years
they have discovered they represent the true definition of
leisure (day) boaters with the focus being on entertaining
friends and family while cruising. Needless to say, they
welcome any excuse for a fabulous glass of wine or a delicious
cocktail! You can also find them traveling as frequently as life in
the new Covid world allows.
They have 3 young adult children, CJ (24), Sabrina (21) and
Sydney (20). CJ is a graduate from FAU currently working in
the Sports and Entertainment industry. Sabrina is currently a
senior at FAU studying education and Sydney is a sophomore at the University of Florida
studying business. Their home is also shared with their furry children, Harper, Brittany, and
Savvy, a red Golden Retriever. The dogs are obsessed with swimming and protecting their
yard from those pestering lizards and iguanas!
Chris and Sara joined the Club primarily to meet people and socialize but they have quickly learned about many of the other
incredible amenities and activities LHPYC has to offer. They are very excited to continue to meet new friendsand get involved in
their new LHPYC community.
I (Jill Selbach) was born at Holy Cross hospital, lived in Member
Lighthouse Point, and been a member of the LHPYC for 47
Years. My husband Jim was born in Ohio and moved to Spotlight
Lighthouse Point in 1969 when he was eight years old. He, too,
grew up being a member of the LHPYC. Four generations of Jill & Jim Selbach
Jim’s family have been LHYPC members. We have seen so
many changes over the years. As children, we both enjoyed
jumping off the platform high diving board into the diving well
of the pool in the early ’70s. I also swam my first swim meet
across the diving well at five years old. We both remember the
1970’s at the Club where jackets were required for dinner, and
Lawrence Welk music played in the bar and dining room.
However, we vastly prefer the more relaxed
dress code and contemporary music.
Jim and I have been married for 30 years. I
went to my best friend’s sister’s wedding,
who was marrying Jim’s younger brother
John (also a club member), and that is where
we met. We have two children: Lindsay, who
is 20 years old, and Troy, who is 17 years old.
Lindsay is a college student at Florida
Atlantic University and swims and works at
LHPYC. Troy is a high school senior at
Northeast High school who worked at
LHPYC last summer. Both kids grew up
playing LHP sports leagues, and Troy has
played basketball for his high school. Our
children grew up going to Easter egg hunts
and brunch, Little Skippers,
summer camp, and many
memorable birthday parties
thrown by the phenomenal staff
here at LHPYC. We also have a
chihuahua, Cha Cha.
I work as a Clinical Psychologist.
I worked for ten years at
Covenant House Florida and was
the Clinical Director there prior to
going into private practice in
Lighthouse Point in 2001. Jim
was a Stock Broker and then found his
calling as a high school math teacher.
He has been teaching at Northeast High
School in Oakland Park for the last 30
years. Jim is retiring at the end of this
school year! Jim says he made much
more money in the stock market after
leaving the investment business and
becoming a teacher.
We do not own a boat, but I grew up
boating and miss it (happy to be a working guest on anyone’s boat). We live a few blocks from the Club and enjoy being within
walking distance. Jim is a trivia, sports, and music buff. We enjoy socializing with friends, concerts, and travel.
The kids and I use the fitness facilities and Jeremy’s personal training. I play tennis, and Jim’s favorite spot at the Club is the
Tiki Bar. I am also happy to serve as a Governor with a wonderful group of dynamic people at LHPYC. It is exciting to be a
part of all the wonderful changes taking place here at the LHPYC!
Our Club is growing stronger, thanks to you. It's has Let's get excited for this new year! We are making

also amazing to see how the club always creates space
to give back to our community and raise funds and
awareness for local charities throughout the year.
We are inviting all our city commissioners to come to
the club. The goal is to hear their plans for our city and
their feedback on our club. We must continue to work
together with our city and elected officials to help each
other grow. Our new club will help create revenue for
our beautiful city and provide a platform to raise funds
for a growing community.
FROM THE SPECIAL EVENTS OFFICE
Another year gone, and I believe 2022 is going to be incredible! With that said, let the special events department
assist you in having your best year ever! I challenge you to call me personally and book your party. Think of all
the celebrations you have coming up and share just one with us. Not only do we promise to make it spectacular,
but you’ll also celebrate in the comfort of your own club, with service from people who really care about you.
Fingers crossed I can keep my resolutions this year, but even if I can’t, I can still plan an awesome party!
Cheers to 2022 and all the wonderful times in store!

Perla and I have been blessed to have an opportunity to
purchase our beautiful 2018 SeaRay 460 Fly. We are a
boating family and love to visit Bimini at least five times
per year. “CARRMA” is a fantastic entertaining yacht
with many amenities found on much larger yachts, such
as a full fiberglass hardtop, full-beam master stateroom,
and a large flybridge that accommodate 12 people. She
is powered by twin Cummins 550s straight shaft with
only 130 hours. Additionally, the boat was built with the
optional new Cummins upper and lower helm joysticks
synchronized with the bow and stern thruster. After
looking at every boat in this category, we could not find
a better boat that offered these benefits. We were also
very fortunate because she was one of the last Sea Ray
yachts to be built.
Perla and I live in Wellington, Florida, with our two
sons, Anthony Jr. and Michael. I am a financial advisor
who just celebrated thirty years in the business. In 2020
Perla and I assisted our two boys in starting a new yacht
tender manufacturing business called EastMarine Boats
Inc., which has thrived since we opened the factory. We
are incredibly proud of our two sons and the
businessmen they have become.
We are all enjoying “CARRMA” which is docked at our
dockominium located at 2 George’s at the Cove Marina.
We use “CARRMA” as our little weekend getaway to
spend more time with many of our new Lighthouse
Point Yacht Club friends. We have been members for
only two years and look forward to becoming friends
with all members who enjoy boating as much as we do.
We are wishing you a Happy and prosperous 2022!

of LHPYC The Art Gallery of Lighthouse Point Yacht Club features
Artist Alexander Krivosheiw for the January 2022 issue of
Daniel J. O’Keefe • Fine Art The Point Magazine. Born in New York in 1976,
516-383-4000 • danieljokeefe.com Alexander's interest in art was inevitably linked to his
DNA. His first real memory of creating was when he was
six years old, experimenting with tools to build abstract
wood structures in his father's garage. By the age of 15, he
studied marble sculpting in Greece, off the Island of Crete.
After graduating with honors and a B.A. in Sculpture from
the School of Visual Arts in New York City, he embarked
on an intensive seven-year apprenticeship with Sculptor
Kevin Barrett to carefully hone his welding and fabrication
skills for large form metal sculptures. Today Alexander
resides in south Florida, where he produces his sculptors
for clients worldwide.
I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know
Alexander five years ago at his studio in West Palm Beach. Alexander walked me through his prominent Sculptors' design and
fabrication process and showed me the tools he worked with. As with all artists, and especially Alexander, it took years of study
and apprenticeship to reach the level of expertise he has accomplished. Alexander says he gets his inspiration from varied sources,
including ancient Greek cultures and modern design aesthetics. "All of my works have their own story. They are abstractions of
things I see in nature, almost thought forms. I see movement and try to hold it in sculpture. I've always been intrigued by the
fundamental nature of metal's longevity, strength, and inherent elegance. I'm creating beauty for people to enjoy, and that's
something we all need in our lives today".
Krivosheiw has an aptitude for combining materials like bronze and
aluminum to create figurative and abstract silhouettes, which reflect
ethereal buoyancy. There's an element of old-world blacksmithing to this
work. "I get deep satisfaction from working with my hands. One
significant difference in my working approach is that I don't heat the
material; I prefer to hammer it out cold. While physically demanding and
far more labor-intensive than working with heated metal, I'm actually able
to work faster. And I have more control over cold Bronze and Aluminum.
Each hammer blow resonates with a physical sense of creation.
Michelangelo spoke of 'releasing the figure trapped within the stone.'
Working so intimately with metal gives me an almost visceral sense of
breathing life into it. I am fascinated with the concept of crafting art with
the potential for surviving far into the future".
Alexander's many public and private works can be found globally. Most
of his sculptors are by commission. Some of his commissions include: The
International Olympic Committee, Lausanne, Switzerland; Brock
Development, Palm Beach Gardens, Fl; NCLH, Miami, Fl; Kennedy
Homes, West Palm Beach, Fl; Pao Huei Property Development, Taichung,
Taiwan; David Bowie, Musician; Hun Sen, Cambodia Prime Minister:
Usain Bolt, Eight-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, To name just a few.
Alexander has had many solo and museum exhibitions as well.
"Alexander Krivosheiw is an artist of vision and passion. His Ideas are of a
mature artist, and the craftsmanship is extraordinary: in both casting and
fabrication. I feel as though his career is unfolding on a global level, and
he is truly an artist to watch" - Hans Van de Bovenkamp.
For information about acquiring the art in the Art Gallery of the LHPYC,
please contact Daniel J. O’Keefe at 516-383-4000 or Diane at the front desk.
The Art Gallery at Light House Point is currently featuring a number of Gallery artists. All the art is for sale.
