This coming Sunday, August 20 is our annual pontoon float; if you want to join us, please see the information below for what it will cost you as a non-member or what you should bring.
Lori will have sign up sheets for members on what to bring or if you need a ride out to the float site at Brewster’s Tuesday night (8/15/17) and you may also rsvp via our facebook page.  The Mohney’s have offered to be our host house and we will have a taco/burrito bar.
It’s time to start thinking year end party and we are always open for restaurant suggestions to check out….has anybody been to the Cove on West Lake yet??  I know a few of us are either heading to Peru, Abaco Island and Ireland this fall so it might be tricky to gather in early fall.
