In addition to 18 outstanding holes of golf, you'll enjoy lunch and dinner, a cocktail hour, raffles, silent auction, prizes and more.

Library News/Summer Reading
Even though the school year has not yet ended, it's time to think about the Summer Reading List. The library has limited copies of most of the required titles for the  unheard of price of $.50 each. So have your student stop by the LRC and stock up on books for Summer Reading.

The Summer Reading list has also been sent to your local public libraries, so they will be aware of your needs.

Finally, now is the time to recycle those paperbacks and get them off your shelves. Just drop them in the box provided in the main office.
