CAPINNÉ 2011

 

CAPINNÉ is an acronym derrived from the phrase CARING ABOUT PEOPLE IN THE NORTHERN NECK".   Over the past 22 years over $525,000 had been distributed to local charities in Lancaster and Northumberland Counties and a scholarship program has been endowed for graduating seniors from the two high schools to enable higher education opportunities through this program.

CAPINNÉ set sail from White Point Marina Saturday evening, July 16th. aboard the Vivian Hannah, owned and piloted by Stan Palivoda with 100 hardy sailors on board.   The event, sponsored by the Northern Neck Rotary Club, continued the tradition of raising funds for charities and programs in Northumberland and Lancaster counties.

 

Co-chairs Carol Spengler and Nina Thompson said that the event was a bit different from those in the past in an effort to enliven interest and call attention to the needs in the community.  In addition to the cruise, the club asked for donations from the community and were gratified by the number of businesses and individuals coming forward.  Both hastened to say that the effort has not ended and donations may be made to the cause by mail at PO Box 108, Kilmarnock.

 

Wardell Carter, Unit Director of the Northern Neck Boys’ and Girls’ Club in Kilmarnock, was awarded the Northern Neck Rotary Club’s Community Service Award for his work at the Boys’ and Girls’ club since its founding.  President Ken Knull outlined the effort and results that are being exhibited by club members.

 

The cruise featured heavy hors d’oeuvres prepared by Windows on the Water at Yankee Point Marina Catering ranging from crab cakes to home made chocolate Truffles.  A spirited silent auction of two original paintings, brass telescope, and dinner for twenty added to the festivities.  A fifty/fifty raffle was held and the winner, Judy Page announced that she would donate the winnings to her two favorite causes, the Animal Welfare League of the Northern Neck and Shirley Perkins Memorial Fund for Animals.

 

As the cruise was coming to an end emcee Skip Ackerly asked the crew for support the Northern Neck Rotary Scholarship program.  The program is endowed to give a $1,000 college, community college or technical school scholarship to deserving graduating seniors at Lancaster and Northumberland high schools.  Recently, as a result of additional directed donations from the CAPINNÉ event, the club has been able to give as many as 3 scholarships in a given year.  This year eight individuals on board donated several hundred additional dollars to the effort.  Funds from the effort will be distributed to local charities later this year.

 

Ken Knull, recently installed president of the club, reminds everyone that CAPINNÉ stands for Caring About People In the Northern NÉck.  The event may be over but the caring never ends.  Knull called on the caring people of the Northern Neck to continue to support the CAPINNÉ program and scholarship program with its donations. 

 

Thus far it appears the club will be able to distribute approximately $10,000 to local charities and scholarships.
