With the A diamond lighting project completed in 2018 we are now working on  PHASE II. The Club has raised  $30,000 towards of the $65,000 needed to complete the project.  We hope to raise the balance this year so that the lighting work can commence in the Fall of 2019.   Thank you for your ongoing support.
