Special Events Committee

The Special Events Committee conducts monthly events for the entertainment and education of our members and guests.  Typical events are a bus trip to a sporting event or play, a visit to a museum or other point of interest, a cruise on one of the local waterways, and a tour of local attractions.


Each event is conducted by a three-or- four man team.  No prior experience running events is needed.  We’ll train you in what to do, and you’ll enjoy doing it!
