The TONE Winter Dinner
The TONE Winter Dinner:  Saturday, March 11, 2017.
We had such a good response for last year's event at the Inn at Mystic that we went back.  Once again TONE gathered at the Haley Mansion overlooking the Mystic River for a wonderful evening of catching up and fellowship.

This year's event featured a cocktail hour (two actually - TONE members like to talk!) followed by a wonderful buffet dinner and dessert.

To the left, Martin Waine gets serious with Dick Usen.

Down to the right, John Allen listens to Robert Johnson as Richard Gard (back to camera) also tunes in.

The dinner was moved into the mansion proper.  We decided that it would just be too windy and cold to keep everyone comfortable in the tent we used last year.  The living room with its cozy fireplace was turned into a very intimate dining room for the roughly fifty members who attended the event.

To the left, clockwise, members Larry Jones, Carol Larson (back to camera), John Allen, Robert Johnson, Tricia Johnson, Dick Jerauld, and Tom Mikan enjoy dinner.

Down to the right, the Women of TONE: Myra Waine, Mary Grace La Rocca, Joyce Stoehr, Fernanda La Rocca, and Judy Allen enjoy drinks in front of the fireplace.

Pictured below, our long distance attendee couple was Ann and Tom Mikan from Hertford, North Carolina.  TONE President Gary Van Voorhis awarded them a big canvas TONE Captains Bag in recognition of their long journey to the dinner.

To the right, a family affair:  Cindy and Gary Van Voorhis share the photo with daughter-in-law Samantha and son Adam.  Two generations of Tartan and TONE.  Gary and Cindy sail a T-3800 and Sam and Adam drive a classic T-37C.

Now is the time to begin thinking about the TONE Summer 2017 Rendezvous.  It's going to take place August 4, 5 & 6 at Kingman Yacht Center, Red Brook Harbor, Cape Cod.  Initial details about the rendezvous were announced at the Winter Dinner and more details will follow as we firm things up.
