June 2024 President’s Message

May 2024 President’s Message

FORE! I could have used that phrase many times at our 26th Annual Golf Tournament… LOL. We had another great turnout, and the weather cooperated for the most part. The passing shower did not put a damper on our networking, fundraising, and fun. I truly appreciate all the efforts of the golf committee and volunteers [...]

April 2024 President’s Message

Welcome Spring!

February 2024 President’s Message

Folks, We have reached the point of the year when a furry little guy named Phil leaves his luxurious burrow in the Punxsutawney library to greet visitors and share his knowledge of future weather events.

November 2023 President’s Message

BOO! The month of October was “Good, Scary Good”! We kicked off the month with our annual Bingo for Bones event at Montague Lake, and the weather could not have been more perfect. This year we were able to raise over $4,000 for our local animal rescue partners. This chili was tasty, and the [...]

September 2023 President’s Message

Sadly summer is coming to a close, and school is about to be back in session or already is for some of you. But on the bright side we have a fun fall in store. Aside from football, pumpkin spice, and cooler temperatures, we have some great programs lined up. Kicking those off, on [...]
