Most notable of these changes was to make all “Charter Members” Lifetime Members of the club.  They will no longer have to pay dues but will have all the same privileges as club members.

The Board of Directors is still having discussion about this year's Christmas celebration.  Since the membership meeting falls on St. Nicklaus Day.  They are thinking about having an early social and then having a New Year's Eve party similar to our Anniversary Party.  A request from membership was received to look at hotels on Military Highway for such a party to avoid high parking fees.
