Spring Cleaning at the Club!  
Our Building Committee is asking all members to remove or safely store any personal items that you may have left around in the club’s common areas. A clean-up brigade will be going through shortly - all items found piled, stacked or strewn on top or near lockers will be collected and held in lost & found for two weeks. After that, no guarantees of retrieval are made! Thanks for your help in making sure our club remains neat and tidy!
