Chief’s Message

Hej (Hello),

Our Club is a great place to be a member of, witnessed again this past Sunday. Our Polar Bear Swim and Steak Fry was a great success, raising more than $1600.00 for our children’s activities. I would like to thank the House Committee, my husband Steve, Phil Bemis, volunteers, supporters and swim participants. It wouldn’t be a success without you!

Our Herring breakfast is March 9th, and St Patty’s Party on March 16th, to the next big thing called spring “Hurray”!

Hope you all had a safe and happy winter. It sure was a chilly one!

Talk again soon!

Chief Mindy
