COVID and an update on 2021

With the continued State and County requirements, and for the continued safety fo our older members, we continue to be CLOSED to the general public. However, Club Members continue be hard at work cleaning up and renewing the layout after our break-in 1 year ago. While some of our members have gone on sabbatical for their health and safety, we have also welcomed several new members into the fold. We look forward to the day when we can open the clubhouse to the Public again and show off all of our hard work. Stay safe!
