BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - There's a new commodore at the Biloxi Yacht Club, and club members gathered to celebrate Sunday afternoon.
The event started with a beautiful presentation of the colors and moved into a lunch for members, past commodores and other members who hold positions.
Tod Holman will serve as this year's commodore. He says his plan for the year is to improve the quality of service at the club as well as encourage more member participation to get back to their roots of sailing.
"It's wonderful and it's a humbling experience. I'm the 92nd Commodore of the Biloxi Yacht Club, and I must say that one of the greatest things today was that we had a number of our previous commodores here," said Holman. "We have as many as 18 to 20, and that's a great historical thing to have those people care enough to come back and make an effort to be here today."
