It would not happen without you, and we are thankful for your volunteer spirit! The club cleanup day is Sunday, September 18th and we hope you will consider joining us to make the club sparkle. The start time is 9am.
If anyone would like to dress up in period “Old Days” costume during the celebration weekend, please do so! It would be fun to see the spirit of the old west shine for our visitors.

v Due to the process of obtaining our full-time liquor license – October will be a dry month. We have a 30-day time frame, where we are not allowed to sell, serve, or drink alcohol on the club premises. We are considering holding our October general membership meeting in another location. If you have any ideas, please share them at the meeting on September 15th.
v Recently, the club was unable to provide dumpster space for our renters due to someone using it without permission. We would like to remind everyone that the dumpster at the club is for the club's use only. We are booked every weekend and it takes all the room in the dumpster to accommodate our tenants.
v The Seniors (adult) beverage raffle is being postponed until our December Christmas dinner. Please consider donating to a great cause. All donations can be delivered to the bar (Zach Perron) between now and then.
