Message from the GM (April 2020)

Dear Members,

Thank you to all our members who came to our annual meeting. All your gracious comments meant a lot to myself and the board as well. I hope you all enjoyed the food & drink, the prospect of a new facility and the future of this magnificent club.

It's hard to believe that I have been employed as your club manager for the past 10 years, I guess it’s a labor of love. I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you all!!!

In these times of uncertainty, I wanted to assure you all, that the board, myself and our incredible staff will be doing everything we can to maintain our take-away operations.

Those of you who have experienced our drive thru know that our main concern is for the health and well being of our staff and our members. The staff is overwhelmed and greatly appreciative of your support and your generosity.
 

Sincerely,

Vinnie Feola
General Manager
