1938

1938

The middle years of the twentieth century were another time of transition for the town and the Club. Members served in the Navy, Army, Marines, Coast Guard and elsewhere during World War II. The wharf and clubhouse weathered the floods and mighty gales of the Great New England Hurricane of 1938 and even more destructive Hurricane of 1944, when the china service was smashed, the piano ended up on the Coal Wharf now the home of the Seafood Shanty and the race committee boat, DEFIANCE, was badly damaged.
