What can YOU do?

Any club/organization/group has needs. 

 The main need is for the membership to get involved!

Do you have to be a member to get involved?  Absolutely not!  

There are many ways that our friends and supporters can help.  

 Many people are willing to do,  what they can do,   when they can,

 if they only knew what to do! 

The purpose of this page is to try to keep the membership informed as to the many ways they can help.  Most of the maintenance is done by volunteers. 

Some things are only occasional.  Others are ongoing. 

If everyone helps, then it is less stress and strain on those leading the organization throughout the year.

     After any function in the Clubhouse, there is always the usual straightening of chairs, sweeping of floors, taking out of trash, checking of restrooms.  If everyone pitches in, then within a matter of minutes, everything is done and everyone can leave for home at about the same time. ( It is also greatly appreciated!)

     Throughout the year there are various functions that require certain tasks.  Listed below are some of those functions and the tasks required for their success.
