This website will host updated information and news about the the Community Club and the upcoming campaign to raise money to keep this beautiful heritage building in good shape for current and future members!!!

I'm going to find some good photos of the club to post, and please let me know if you have some nice interesting photos to contribute.  I'll be setting up a heritage photo page shortly.
