A huge thank you to our painting project volunteers!!

By now, most of you have probably seen the inside of our ‘new’ Clubouse and I’m sure you’ll agree that it looks terrific!!

On very short notice, there was a great turn-out of volunteers to repaint the main hall of the Clubhouse, the window frames and some of the doors. It is estimated that 150 hours of volunteer time was donated by our members. Thanks to the following teams who helped with the project. A special thank you to Martha McArthur and Hilary Callihoo who were the team leads throughout the project. The place looks wonderful!!!
