History of the Pioneer Valley Yacht Club
Dear PVYC friends,

It’s official- I am your newly elected Commodore and the
second woman to take this leadership role in the 60 plus year
history of the PVYC.  I am honored to have been asked to
represent this “Hidden Gem” that I have referred to as my
second home for many years.  I look forward to getting to know
each and every one of you better and match the names to the
faces.  I will continue to chair the Social Committee with the
help of Lynne Aronson and the awesome members of my
committee who return to their duties every year. I always said it
is the committee that has the most fun!

I have no reservations about taking on the added
responsibilities of the Commodore because I know for a fact
that we have some of the most dedicated, conscientious and
caring members who go above and beyond when the need
arises.  In addition, the leadership team is a diverse group of
individuals with excellent leadership skills and knowledge who
are committed to making decisions to keep the PVYC thriving
for another 60 years and beyond.  In other words, I am in
“Good Hands”! Thank You to everyone who has congratulated
me and who have personally approached me with their
support.  It means so much to me to feel all the support and the

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your families a
Happy and Healthy New Year! I look forward to seeing all our
returning members and many of our newest members again in

Linda Betley, Commodore
