2023 Holiday Potluck Gathering and Club Meeting



December 13th, we celebrated the year with a potluck lunch after a fun morning of playing pickleball together. The food was scrumptious, and the room was filled with joy, camaraderie, and a sense of pride.

A 2023 Year in Review was provided to acknowledge the hard work and shared accomplishments of the year.  The highlights of our milestones demonstrate the positive impact we’ve made in our community in 2023.

This event served as a testament to the strength of our club and the meaningful connections forged among our members.

We look forward to building on this success and achieving even greater heights in the coming year!
