March 18thAnnual St. Patrick Party
The Annual St. Patrick Party event to be held on March 18th, 2015 is open to Club MEMBERS ONLY. As you know, guests are always welcome at our meetings but, again, due to space limitations and the comfort of Club members attending our events, especially during March which is at the peak of the "High Season", it is necessary to limit the March meeting to Club members only! Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
