Website Updates

Change is Coming...Within the next few weeks you should begin seeing updates and possibly minor changes to our website as I take over this responsibility.   Chuck did an amazing job and he will be a tough act to follow.  The club was really fortunate to have him and we are very grateful for his hard work managing the club site. . Thank you Chuck!!   But change is inevitable.   I ask you to be patient as I learn the ins and outs of updating and managing this important means for communication.
