A message from the founders of the Youth Committee:
The club has graciously allowed my wife, Meredith, and I to start a youth activities committee. We registered 70 kids for our first annual Easter Egg Hunt. This was all possible due to some very generous donations. As of October 2011, I will be stepping down as leader of the Youth Committee, but we are very fortunately to have Katrina Keyser volunteer to be the committee’s new leader. My wife and I would like to thank you and your kids for attending our youth events and creating many great memories up on the hill)
