60th Anniversary Celebration
Saturday, June 8, 2013
1-4 p.m.


On June 8th, 2013, we held an open house and garden tour to celebrate our 60 year anniversary.

Our club was incorporated in 1953.

In preparation for this open house, members worked to fix up the clubhouse and gardens so we could open our doors (and gates) to the public as well as our members.

Behind the scenes - getting ready for the big day

The interior of the clubhouse was painted.  We had a new ceiling installed, along with new fans, new light fixtures and new curtains.  Thanks to
donations from our members and several local businesses, we were able to accomplish more than we ever imagined to give our entire club a very timely face-lift prior to our celebration.
