WE LISTENED **** Return of Activity Fees
 
You, our members, unanimously voted at the 2017 Annual Meeting to bring back hourly fees when playing games and related activities at the Center to help defray operation costs. Thank you!
Envelopes for each activity will be at the front desk for you to make a donation. Starting in February, members will pay $1 per hour and nonmembers $2 per hour -- simply let the ambassadors at the front desk know which activity.
We will also be going to businesses to get discounts for you, our members, as a thank you for your support of the Center.
 

 Welcome Back Greg Miley!
 
We’re thrilled to have Greg back to cook for luncheons and events. Since we were last treated to his meals, he has been one busy guy. He created Miley Q Brands Rubs & Seasonings and joined forces with Hungry Hound BBQ Company, a catering and vending business specializing in all barbecue options, with homemade sides and more. The name comes from their love of dogs and their original mascot, a Bluetick Coonhound, named Waylon. All are dedicated to providing delicious food and giving back to animals whenever possible.
 

Thanks For Your Help
 
Thanks to all who helped make the Santa Breakfasts a success. The $3,500 net will be used to support Center programs and operations.
