Traditions play a big role in the development of any social organization. While many WDYC traditions have come and gone, many still remain. Harkening to the days when the club closed for the winter months, the Commissioning is held on Memorial Day weekend to mark the beginning of the summer season and typically features dinner and dancing. The Commodore’s Ball, typically Labor Day weekend, marks the passing of the flags to the new officers of the club for the coming year. This event is also normally marked by a dining and social event.
