Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Sadly, Corona/COVID has caused us to cancel our upcoming December 11th membership meeting. We hope you understand the situation and our need to remain cautious.

*Please look for our Christmas/New Year message along with a report on the decisions of our membership for the officer elections.

**Remember, yearly membership dues are upcoming quickly.

Thank you for your friendship, support, and loyalty to our Strong Community!

Our speaker will be Bart McFadden. McFadden took the helm at the Boys and Girls Club in 2016. Since then his mission has been serving the youth who walk through the doors of the Tennessee Valley Clubs.

Come learn more about what’s going on at the Boys and Girls Clubs.
