Clubhouse News

Hello my friends,

It's almost May as I’m writing this, and I’m still wondering when the warm weather is going to stick around. I think we are all expecting it by now.

As I was driving home the other night after a long day at the Club (that 45-minute drive I have made for 10 years now), nothing seemed out of the ordinary. I was reflecting on the day I just had and the next day on the calendar. I started thinking about Mother’s Day approaching just as the perfect song came on the radio. I’d like to share some momma wisdom with you that I took from the lyrics:

Hold the door, say “please,” say “thank you”
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you’ve got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind
When those dreams you’re dreaming come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re going don’t forget to turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

—"Humble and Kind" by Tim McGraw

Now if you believe in these lyrics, get on the phone, call your mom, and thank her for teaching you what kindness and manners are all about.

Grab that cup of coffee...it's time for this month's fireside chat for May.

Before we get started, I would like to say thank you again for the many opportunities we’ve had to serve you. We have been remarkably busy the past couple of months, and we appreciate our members and the businesses who frequent the Club. We take pride in what we do and how we do it, and always try to accommodate everyone’s needs. It's our passion to deliver above your expectations.
