We are a community deciding how to chart its future and how to preserve and increase its property value. The Annual Dues proposal is not an “us v. them” contest.

We have also decided to resume, in a COVID-19 compliant manner, our evening informal drop in sessions beginning the last week of August. The format will use reservations to schedule members. More on the specifics will be announced soon.
