COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

4/1/2020

Gov. Ron DeSantis’ executive order mandates that Floridians stay at home,
starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday, with exemptions only for “essential services”.

(People should leave their homes only for essential activities.)

ALL gatherings (formal or informal) are prohibited
at TSS until further notice.  To help stop the spread of the virus, please limit
any use of the clubhouse to essential activities, at your own risk, and take every
precaution in hand washing, sanitizing all surfaces used, etc.
Remember: You may be spread the virus long before you have symptoms.
Don't put yourself, or other members in jeopardy.

Activities allowed under the order include recreational boating, but health & safety needs to be our #1 priority.
If you decide to use your boat, please be sure to follow current government policies and act with a deep respect for the health and safety of others. 

Dockmaster Don Swartz will continue to monitor all boats for safety and security during this crisis.

- Gary Mull, TSS Commodore

The Memorial Garden 

TSS Memorial Garden Project  

As many of you are aware, we have lost a few of our passionate members, leaving behind a spouse that came to TSS for many years.  We also have members that have lost children who grew up at TSS.  In honor of them, we wanted to beautify a spot that we can all use to reflect and enjoy.
We have a beautiful tree that will provide shade for many years to come.  We are also blessed to have a Landscape Architect that created the garden. 
The Board has given us the blessing to take the necessary steps.   If you would like to contribute, there will be a funding site set up.  
We look forward to bringing our club to a better place with your help.
