    We continue to get updates from our Members as well as our Sunshine Lady, Bernie Yencha about concerns for some of our members & friends of The Club.


    We  recently received an email from Marilyn Smaka relative to husband Wil, who are in Michigan when not in Florida. Wil is experiencing a number of health issues for which he is being treated. He is currently undergoing treatment. We all hope this remedies his issues. We hope to see both of them when we open on Nov 5th.


    Michael Jacoby, long term member of the Club passed away July 18th. As his obituary says, he left cherished memories to his long time companion, Gloria Muchurski and her family. Michael was always a proud veteran who served in the United States Navy as a Seabee.


    Ken Cichowski & his son Johnny continue to need our prayers & concerns as Johnny continues to have effects from his accident at The State Fair Grounds. Johnny appears to be benefiting from his medical treatment. Ken also continues to address concerns relative to his mother.


    Gene & Barbara Poplawski's daughter Debbie, recently underwent surgery for a brain tumor. She is now undergoing further treatment and appears to be making good progress. Please keep the Poplawski  family in your prayers.
