Message from the GM (March 2018)
Thank you to all equity members who voted in this past election. Our current board members have been reelected and they will continue to a great job for the club.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite all members to our Annual Meeting on March 15th at 6:00 pm. This is an opportunity to meet your newly appointed officers, here the status of the club & have a brief overview of the past year.
Immediately following our annual meeting there will be a Member Appreciation Party. This will be a members only event.
Now that it is high season, and with fewer dining choices available since the storm I would recommend that all members make dinner reservations at least 24 to 48 hours in advance. Please remember that we have limited window tables available and they are filled on a first come first serve basis. With our incredibly gorgeous weather, I encourage you to try our outdoor patio. We will gratefully accept last minute reservations with time and space availability being considered.
Please be considerate to your fellow members & make sure to have your parking/name card on your dashboard when you come to the club and park 3 deep pulling all the way forward. If you need a new name tag to put on your dashboard, please see me. Unfortunately we are no longer able to park at the Vernis & Bowling property.
