  • Car Show Returns July 9 - Save the Date!  A signup sheet for volunteers will be coming soon. This event takes a large volunteer team, so we hope all members can find a place to volunteer.
  • We are continuing to ask our members to sign up for meals each week to help us control food waste and membership costs.  Tabs are available at the bottom of the spreadsheet for the upcoming months.
