We need more members to be involved and participate in keeping our building and grounds in good shape. And not necessarily in monetary donations either. If we could get enough people to come and donate a few hours of time and labor we could get these projects done. If we don’t get the repairs to the building done, then we won’t have a place to go and enjoy ourselves with the friends we have made over the years. It seems that many of the same people are doing all the up-keep at the club. As a member, please make a choice to step up and help. Monetary donations may be sent to the club at the above address, please note with “Building Fund” on the envelope and check.
If you would like to host an event at the club pavilion, there is a $100.00 deposit and a $30.00 Non- REFUNDABLE Fee will be deducted for the Pavilion Rental. Please fill out the reservation agreement and drop in the membership box, with deposit. Pavilion rental is on a first come, first serve basis. Please check the calendar that is posted at the club. Deposit will be returned after the pavilion has been cleaned by you and inspected by the Club for any damage.
