On Saturday, September 12th LHPYC will be helping Honor Flight South Florida organize another Veteran
Outreach & Parade event. We invite all LHPYC Members to join us in our e orts to show these local WWII,
Korean War, and Vietnam Veterans our love, respect, and thanks.
This will be the 6th Parade I have organized with
HFSF for South Florida Veterans whose Honor
Flights we unfortunately had to cancel due to
Covid-19. This event will be a nice break from
your quarantine and a great way to keep up your
Patriotic spirit! The Pompano / LHP route will be
our longest and probably most rewarding parade
yet. We will be saluting 10 veterans who had their
2020 flights postponed, 3 of which are WWII
Veterans who have never had the chance to see
THEIR memorial in Washington DC.
Everyone is encouraged to decorate their cars with
flags, posters and in red, white, and blue. If you
would like to donate any supplies or tokens of
gratitude to these Veterans, you are welcome to do
so. So far the common items needed have been
Clorox wipes, masks, and toilet paper. It would be
great to see some notes of thanks or drawings
from your kids as well!

IN OUR COMMUNITY
We will continue to follow the social distancing 11
guidelines, so wear a mask, maintain the 6-foot
spacing and stay in your car while waiting. There
will be no final gathering, so after we pass the last
house the parade is over, and you can drive home.
We will meet in the LHPYC Parking Lot at 3 PM
and depart at 4 PM sharp to start the Drive By.

As of this writing, the state of Florida continues to set daily records
for increases in the COVID-19 virus. I hope everyone is doing their
part to stay safe, minimize the spread, and continue their normal
daily lives as much as is possible. It did occur to me however, that
there are some things as a byproduct of this pandemic that haven’t
been so bad! For example the traffic has been remarkably light
over the last few months and I certainly have improved and
increased quality time with my family. I have no problem getting a
table when I do choose to go out to dinner, and everything in my
life is remarkably clean!
Also upon a recent trip down to the Keys it has become apparent

Our tennis department has been very busy this month!
Even though many members went out of town for
vacation, our Kids Tennis Camp has been very active
every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with lots of new
faces on courts, new Flagship and Summer Members
taking lessons and playing with their families and close
As you all probably know by now, our tennis courts are
available to use from dusk to dawn. This obviously
allows our court maintenance staff to take care of the
courts every day from 12 to 2 pm. The Pro Shop is still
closed until further notice due to the COVID-19, but my
tennis staff and I will be waiting outside the Pro Shop to
do the regular check-in of all members and their guests.
We are encouraging the members to keep booking the
courts online through our tennis website
www.lhpyctennis.com. In order to use the tennis courts,
everyone must make their court reservations online.
I would like to ask every tennis member to register
themselves and to encourage other members to do the
same as we all need to have a tennis system. We now
have 115 members registered on our tennis website,
which is very positive. This is a good number but I
believe we can grow more and more.
I’d like to remind you that the use of the mask is
MANDATORY. Only by respecting the restrictions of the
city of LHP and CDC Guidelines can we all together
defeat the virus and maintain our facility safely.
Let’s have an amazing month of August! Enjoy our
facility and play tennis!
Farewell It saddens us to announce the permanent layoff of the following managers: Sari Kaiser,
Vita Thompson and Tristan Duke. All three have been integral parts of LHPYC for
numerous years. Their contributions will always be valued and remembered. The hard work,
commitment and dedication shown by each of them will be missed.
We also want to recognize other staff members who have been laid off that have contributed to
our growth over the years and wish them well in their future endeavors. Nathalie, Moe,
Jack, Nancy and Mr. T.
As a tribute, we would like to have a Farwell-Sendoff in which all can stop by and give thanks
to show our appreciation to them. It will be an informal get together on Thursday August
6th from 5:00– 8:00 PM.
On behalf of LHPYC, we wish them the best in their future endeavors. Covid-19 has changed
all of the ways of the world as we knew it. We are committed to helping them find employ-
ment in whatever avenue they choose. May they have many new opportunities, which we
know they will embrace wholeheartedly. Best of luck to them always. You will all be missed
Congratulations to Scott Hellumd for being chosen as LHPYC
Employee of the Quarter! Scott has emerged as a leader in our
maintenance crew and has helped guide us through our most
difficult times. He shows up every day with a positive attitude
and is totally committed to working hard to do whatever is
necessary to keep all of our equipment in working order.. He has
gone above and beyond to support us days, nights and weekends.
We are grateful to have him as part of the LHPYC Family.
TEACHER SPOTLIGHT Jeremy Martens
Most members will know me by name and some possibly
just by face, but I am proud to be your LHPYC Director of
Fitness and Youth programs. I took the position in October
of 2017 just after our owner Terry Paterson took control of
the Club and I have never looked back. I knew from the
moment I stepped on property that I had found a new
home. And once I started to meet all the amazing members
and wonderful staff, it was truly confirmed.
My first assignment after taking my position was to
update our fitness center with some of today’s top brands
of equipment and rebuild a thriving group fitness program
in our studio. The Club supported my vision 100% and I
am thrilled with how everything turned out and how our
Club has become more and more health and fitness
conscious. It is great to see so many members utilizing the
pool, tennis courts, gym and fitness studio. Keep it up!
My personal fitness journey started when I was 15 years
old. I began working out in my high school fitness center
after school hours. It was in that old dingy weight room
that I discovered my passion for self-discipline and
achieving results. I knew that I loved the challenge of
doing something hard yet seeing the result over time. This
principle still holds true to this day.
During my teenage years I played lacrosse in Canada. I
was able to earn a scholarship to university in the United
States and I knew that it was partly due to skill and partly
my dedication to getting my body stronger and faster than
other kids my age. While others were out enjoying the
teenage years partying, I was working hard in the gym
and on the lacrosse field. Through fitness, I have been able
to see and do things that I never thought possible! Look
where I am today, living in the most beautiful part of the
country, working with some of the most amazing people
at LHPYC. I am so thankful for my fitness journey. Now I
am able to help coach others in their personal journeys and
that give me so much satisfaction as I know just how much
that means. I am so thankful for the opportunity to work
in our wonderful community that I now call home.
If anyone has any questions on our fitness programs,
personal training, group fitness classes I encourage you to
call me anytime. If you are at the Club and want to just
pop in and see me, my door is always open!
FITNESS & YOUTH ACTIVITIES
Before I begin I would just like to thank everyone for adhering to our REQUIRED FACE MASK policy while working out in the gym.

What an amazing summer of swimming we have had!
I have to say it has been a challenge to work our
program into what the county wants us to do to be safe
but we have complied every step of the way! Huge
thank you to the swimmers and their parents for their
support. I am looking forward to planning a Sizzler
Meet with our swimmers as soon as it is allowed. Your
kids have put in a lot of work and it’s time to show it
off! If anyone has any questions on the program or
swim lessons please feel free to contact me directly.

Once again it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you Michael and Caren Holmes, our 3rd
Yacht of the Month review. These folks are so much fun and a pleasure to cruise with.
Featured boat: Holmes Sweet Home owned by LHPYC Members
Michael & Caren Holmes
Holmes Sweet Home is a 59’ Sea Ray built in 2018 and is docked
behind their home in Lighthouse Point. The boat has an enclosed
bridge so they travel in the comfort of air conditioning. This is the
second Sea Ray they have owned and it was purchased from Marine
Max in Pompano. They have been very happy with the responsiveness
of both Sea Ray and the Marine Max team, led by Kyle Roney. A+
team in their opinion.
The Holmes joined the LHPYC in 2017 after considering other yacht
clubs. They had recently purchased their first Sea Ray, a 45’ Sedan
Bridge and were looking to establish friendships with other boat
owners to begin cruising. After Caren met Terry Paterson, she was
convinced that LHPYC was the yacht club for us. Caren applied
enough pressure for Michael to meet with Terry. He promised to show
us the Bahamas and here we are today. Terry has kept his promise and
we have traveled throughout Florida, Abacos and the Exumas.
Terry also had a hand in the purchase of our new boat. After a “minor”
issue (Caren says “major”) in Staniel Cay in the Exumas, Caren said
she would never anchor out overnight again. Terry, who was also in
Staniel, told Michael not to worry, he would talk to Caren. After siting
with Caren in the bar at Chubb, they came to an agreement without
Michael. The solution… Michael had to buy Caren a bigger boat! And
now we have the 59’, thanks Terry!
Michael is a little surprised as how their boating life has evolved. For
one thing, he did not expect Caren to enjoy boating as much as she
does. Caren enjoys not only riding, but also driving the boat. Another
thing that caught them off guard is how their new friendships would
grow; they did not see this coming. Over the last two years, these
friendships have changed to family! If this is what Terry envisioned,
congratulations, it’s working! Now, if we can just get the city to help
him move forward with construction! (We will leave that topic
Everyone stay safe and the Holmes look forward to seeing you at the

of LHPYC This month the Art Gallery at Light House Point Yacht
Club is excited to announce the addition of freelance artist
Daniel J. O’Keefe • Fine Art Samuel Emler to the LHPYC’s Gallery of recognized
516-383-4000 • danieljokeefe.com artists. Samuel received his BFA at the School of Visual
Arts (BFA) Fine Art/illustration in New York City. He
then completed his Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in
Art/Illustration/Fine Art at New York Academy of Art,
New York. Although Samuel had an immense talent to
begin with, it was during his studies in New York where
Samuel refined his extraordinary style of oil portrait and
landscape painting. Emler worked as a fine art illustrator
instructor from 1976 to 1978 in New York City. Emler
decided to move to Florence, Italy where he taught as an
assistant teacher in the 1980s. It was in Florence where
Samuel honed his mural, landscape and portrait skills.
After three years of living in Italy Samuel moved back to
New York where he settled in Massapequa, Long Island.
For the next fifteen years Samuel would continue his art making and mural work. He had a number of gallery shows where
he was recognized as an “old school painter”. He was featured in a number of art publications including the East End
publication, Dan’s Papers, where one of his paintings was featured on the cover. Samuel became a single parent raising two
sons on his own in the early 2000s. It was during this time that Samuel began working for the Chrysalis Gallery in South
Hampton, New York. Today Samuel continues painting and taking commissions for his beautiful mural work. I am glad to
feature four of Samuel’s works in the Art Gallery Of Light House Point.
The Art Gallery at Light House Point is currently featuring a number of Gallery artists. All the art is for sale. For information
about the art please contact Daniel J. O’Keefe at 516-383-4000 or the front desk.
