East Dock Update: It's not too late!

David Lennarz on

Club News

I am pleased to report that we have met our fundraising goal for the Jackson Creek east dock project.  We will continue to accept contributions.  All additional contributions will reduce the amount of debt the club will incur and will reduce the overall cost of the project .  We are in the process of reviewing and signing construction contracts and expect the project to be underway in the coming weeks.   Thank you to all who have contributed so far.
