MaryEllen Meehan is serving Chicken Parm with a side of pasta and a Caesar salad.

Join us for good friends, great food, and lots of smiles!
Bar opens at 7! Hope to see you all there

Nails and More!!

A big Thank You to Debbie and Chris for the magnet on a stick that they donated to the club.
I spent a few minutes with it in the parking lot with some pretty good results.

Obviously you won’t get rich but if you have a little extra time to spend with this thing you may save the cost of a flat tire.

It’s leaning against the wall between the garage doors.

Commodore’s Corner June 2018

Hello friends,

 I hope everyone is having a great spring and staying dry!

We have had a few Friday night get together’s in the Lenape lounge so far.  It was great seeing everyone who has attended.

The social committee is working hard on some fun things for us all.

This Friday night at the club, Cathy and Dave Kellstom are preparing chicken Quesadilla’s, certainly looking forward to that!

We are looking for some people to step up for Fridays in June, July and August, also people to host Saturday night dinners.  Also please don’t forget, if you host a dinner your Fall workday will be waived!  Team up with another couple if you like, or have it catered.  It’s a lot of fun, and helps the club.  Please try and help out and do your share.  It isn’t fair for the same people always volunteering.

The Kennedy’s and Scarpaci’s are once again doing our country Hoedown, serving our delicious pulled pork and all the fixins!  Learn a line dance or two, wear your best country outfits!

Also Chris and Lisa Dobitsch are doing a rotisserie dinner featuring 3 different ind of meat entree’s, this is something not to be missed, stay tuned for more info on that.  Also don’t forget about the BOD end of the year BBQ, last years event was very well attended and everyone had a fantastic time.

I’m sure our Ambassador of fun Mr. Kevin Kennedy will supply his giant Jenga and not to mention the ever popular hula hoop competition.  Again we will have prizes!  Stay tuned for that as well, as Im sure there will be even more surprises!

  So far the weather hasn’t been perfect but im sure that will change.  Its great seeing all the boat’s in their slips and lightnings on the beach.

Don’t forget to come out and watch our fleet sail Saturday mornings, root on your favorite teams!

Special thanks to Dave our dock master on helping to get our docks in shape and all the members who worked so hard and donating their entire Saturday.

John Cope for all the “behind the scenes” things you also do .  John just installed a new photo sensor on our beach light, is in the process of hanging the flat screen TV in the lakeside room, and many other things that go unnoticed.

Marcel, one of our expert sailors, has donated his canoe for any member who would like to use it. The key is in the clubhouse, please contact me if you would like to use the canoe.  Please remember to ALWAYS wear your life vest.

 In closing I look forward to seeing you around the club and on the lake!  Lets make it the best season yet!

Franz Schneider a Former LWYC member and Commodore

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of former LWYC members, Franz Schneider, a former commodore. 



Franz K. Schneider, Jr. PE, known to many as “Sonny,” passed away on March 31, 2018 shortly after a massive stroke, at the age of 85.  A native of Philadelphia, PA, he currently resided in Lumberton and Beach Haven NJ, after living most of his life in Moorestown NJ.  Franz graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, a Mechanical Engineer in 1955.   At Penn, he rowed crew, and was a Beta Theta Pi.

His family, family business (Albion), and sailing were a huge part of his life.  Franz ran Albion Engineering Company from 1963-1998, taking it over from his father, and passing it forward to his son Mark.  While he ran the company, it exclusively manufactured in the US.  He raced Lightning class sailboats (3333, 5079, 8379, 15079) with his family for decades.  First he sailed at Spray Beach YC, and Little Egg Harbor YC. Subsequently, he starting a fleet in Annapolis, and grew the fleets at Red Dragon and Lake Wallenpaupack Yacht Club, before returning to LEHYC in the mid 90s.

Franz served as President of the LWYC, as well as Treasurer.  His entire family participated in racing and sailing, and the social activities at the club.

Franz remained an active contributing member and leader of the First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown, multiple sailing organizations, US based manufacturing organizations, and the Rotary.  He is survived by his wife of sixty years, Sheila H. Schneider, son Mark C. Schneider (Lucinda), daughters Cathy Schneider, Susan Schneider-Levin (Brent), Caroline Hoedemaker (Robert), along with seven grandchildren.

A Celebration of Franz’s life will be held on Wednesday, April 18th at 11:00, at the First Presbyterian Church in Moorestown, NJ.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Franz can be made to the First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown.
