On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce that we are under contract for the purchase of additional property on Madeira Road within walking distance from the Club. As everyone knows, parking has been of concern for quite some time. We have been extremely fortunate through the years to have great neighbors and supportive members, the Lindback Family, who have been gracious enough to work with us for overflow parking. For some time, we had an arrangement with Vernis and Bowling to use their back lot just 400 feet from our entrance but due to their insurance carrier's concerns we were unable to continue using that lot.
The Board along with staff has worked diligently to put the Club in the best financial position in years thus allowing us to capitalize on this seldom available opportunity to provide a permanent, owned parking alternative for events, busy evenings, and future
plans to enhance our facility.
Upon closing the transaction, of which our board member Patty Stanley, acting as our realtor, has generously donated her portion of the commission towards our closing costs, we will work to come up with an effective plan to use the property to alleviate many of our parking issues. I am truly excited about this opportunity as I know many of our members will be too.
