Dear Friends. 😂😂
Please accept my sincere apologies for not being able to attend your birthdays or any events, As you know, my passion is boating and spending as much time aboard as we can.
The short Cape Ann boating season and the high costs associated with the boat to sit idle (unused for a weekend) requires me to say no to all non boating events planned during this boating season.
Please don’t take this personally, but I hope you understand my formal summer weekend policy. If you would like to move your special events after Oct 15th and before May 15th, I would be happy to attend.
I hope you respect my position, as I respect yours selecting a date that ruins summer weekend plans which everyone is dreading going to anyways.
Knowing that you will not change the date to accommodate my schedule, please find enclosed a check as a gift.
