Due to concerns about COVID-19, some programs have been cancelled for 2021 while others have been modified to adjust to current guidelines.  Please check under ‘Programs’ on the home page to see the status of the various Programs.

We need volunteers to help run some of the programs being offered this summer.  Please look over the positions listed below and consider donating your time.  Thank you!

1. Two volunteers to run a Basketball Skills Clinic for kids ages 9-13.

2. Two volunteers to run a Pickleball Skills Clinic for kids ages 9-13.  If possible. these Clinics would be offered once a week but the volunteers would decide on the schedule.

3. Volunteers to help with event planning and set-up for the Outer Island Adventure Race in August.

4. Volunteers for a large gathering Social Committee. (In the past this has been mostly Cottage Socials but this will likely take a different form in 2021 due to Covid-19).  Responsibilities would include event planning, games for kids, marketing to members, set up, hosting and clean-up.

Please contact Jess Sloss at  if you would like to help out.
