Welcome to OurDowntownMarina.com – an information harbor for the slip holders at Volunteer Landing Marina (VLM). Full Membership is reserved exclusively for persons who keep their boats at the marina. There are no membership meetings, officers, or membership dues. Slip holders are simply encouraged to create a free user account and contribute content in the form of posts, pictures & comments.
We welcome posts describing accounts of (a) the good times you enjoy on your boats and in our beautiful downtown area, (b) invitations you may wish to extend for friendly “get-togethers” on your boat or at some other specific location in the downtown area, (c) photos of you with your family & friends at the marina or out on the water, (d) delicious recipes you have prepared and enjoyed on your boat, and (e) any other helpful “boat keeping” tips that you would like to pass along. In addition, we look forward to regular features from Joe Cornelius (our Harbormaster) with (a) important information about the operation of the marina, (b) interesting photos he has taken, (c) information about upcoming events on the water, (d) alerts about “specials” offered at the ships store, (e) introduction of new staff members & slip holders, and (f) preventive maintenance & security tips.
If everyone creates a username and posts something new every now and then, we will all certainly become better at associating names and faces with the boats docked in our marina. Ultimately, this will increase our sense of “community” and provide added security for everyone.
