Sad and unexpected:

Gil VanSoelen , our Seasider Jane VanSoelen’s husband passed away in Ontario, Canada Feb. 18.     Gil will be remembered fondly as he was a long time Singer Island Rotary member, POA member, and avid neighborhood biker.  Gil always had time to say hello and talk to everyone with his great booming voice.

Dee Dorsey passed away on Saturday May 6, 2017 .

Dee was a very active Seasider participating in all aspects of the organization. Among her many activities  she was co-chair of the Social Committee and   Corresponding Secretary in charge of reservations.  Dee always tried to accommodate all the late and tardy reservations and did so with great skill which was a running joke with the Seasider Hostesses.   She was always willing to help in any capacity that she could.  Her help and guidance was always thoughtful and kind.  Dee was unable to attend our fabulous Fashion Show in which she had modeled in previous years and was almost in tears to miss it.  She made a special effort to be with us at our April Luncheon meeting.  She loved Seasiders and we loved her !  Dee we will so miss you !

Funeral : Cathedral of St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church Friday May 12, 11:00 am  PBG
