Clubhouse Cleanup – This Saturday

It’s that time of year to do a little spring cleaning before TarcFest.

This Saturday, 1/10 @ 9a, we’ll meet at the Clubhouse to clean up the yard, trim some trees, mow the grass, and straighten up the insides of the building in anticipation of TarcFest the following weekend.

I anticipate we can complete this in about two hours.  The more hands, the lighter the work.

See you Saturday!

73, Bill
