A message from our President, Chris Cable

 

Dear reader it may seem that winter will never end...but the good news is that we continue to share warmth and fellowship among our Club members as we wait patiently for spring flowers and the promise of summer. Get ready for golf, wildflower hikes and our famous summer BBQ! Our Club's success is a direct reflection of the enthusiasm that you bring to our meetings, events and special interest activities. With 250 members we are energized, so let's keep the momentum going. See you at our next general meeting on May 10th.

 

Chris
