Want to rent the Clubhouse?

Mickey has decided to relinquish her volunteer duties at the Clubhouse. Mickey has done a tremendous job in processing rentals, maintaining supplies and keeping the Clubhouse in perfect order. Thanks Mickey for a job well done.
Effective January 1, 2008, Barb B. and Judie L. have volunteered to take over these important duties. Barb will be the main contact for rentals. Judie will be checking the clubhouse and serve as backup in Barb’s absence. Both will share the many other tasks relating to keeping the Clubhouse in order. We appreciate Barb and Judie accepting this important task.
Copies of the rental form and rules are available at the Clubhouse and from Barb
and Judie.
