Field Day Preparations

We will be having a work day on Saturday April 26, 2014 at the Lock Two Park club house. We hope to power wash the outside and then just a general clean up inside getting ready for Field Day. We will start at 9am. Anyone who would like to help is more than welcome.

If there are any changes before then we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
