Our board is made up of 11, like-minded members, who strive to make our community a better place, one friendly face at a time. We also have a great crew of "extended members" who attend meetings, bring many ideas to the table and help with the planning and executing of all of our events. This group, as a whole, makes up an amazing group of volunteers who put forth the time and effort to see that our community is always at the top of our list. Giving is one of the greatest feelings, and we love nothing more than to give back all that we can.
