Fund Raising - In preparation for moving into the new facility, there will be a need for funds to purchase items not covered by the project funding. Director David de Cani has been charged with this task. This committee will not be handling minor fundraising events but rather one or two major events over the next six months. He is asking for club members from all sections (bowls, croquet and golf) to come on board with him to put together plan and assist with the implementation. Members who are willing to assist are asked to please contact David on 0417570447 as soon as possible.
