Our Capital Campaign

Our beloved community summer spot has been a place to call home during the summer months since 1965. Our facilities have gotten some recent capital improvements such as the resurfaced parking lot and new front fencing and gated entry. The Board of Trustees plans to do many more improvements, including the most needed and costly improvement of replacing the pool deck. More details to come on how you can be involved!
