The last run to the recycling center will be Thursday, March 22nd so be sure to have your cans in by this WEDNESDAY. After that, thanks to Ken Smith, he will put the last of the cans in storage March 31st. Thanks, Ken!! A final update on how much the MRPBClub made from your drinking will be in next week’s newsletter!
A huge THANKS to all the gals who organized the monthly Ladies Luncheons this season. It is a wonderful way to get to know some of our fellow pickleball players in an ‘off court’ environment. We also get to see what people look like without their visors on…haha. Many new friends are made on and off the court in pickleball so thanks for providing one more opportunity for our members to do this.
