Harold shared that he received his life membership in 1968.  Many of the folks who have been around for some time remember all of the hard work and time Harold put in when the club was just starting, to make the club what it is today.

Carl has been extremely active helping the club with  whatever needs done.  He can be seen mowing, painting, filling ruts and doing repairs all over the club grounds.  He is very active in the Adventure Trail, is the VIPL Team Captain and started the Silhouette matches.  Besides all of this he finds time to participate and help with just about every event at the club.
