Save the Dates/Calendar of Events and Activities

Because there are many PB Club events and activities planned over
the next six weeks we created a calendar of events. The Club has
over 970 members and adding new members almost daily. The Board is
attempting to create fun events and activities off the courts both
inside and outside the community.

We understand not all events will appeal to everyone but hopefully
something will appeal to the majority. And with the snowbirds
starting to leave in April, we wanted to be sure we had events
before they left. We are already planning for Fall events and
activities so next year will be a fun filled year as well. We always
appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future activities.

The Board would like to thank all the volunteers that are putting in
their time and talent behind the scenes to help all of us enjoy our
Club even more.

1)  Volunteer your time for St. Mary’s Food Bank Monday
morning’s (9am-noon) and Thursday afternoon’s (1pm-4pm). Come when
you can on those days…no commitment necessary. We ask that you
please try it at least one time, no heavy lifting and free
coffee/water and donuts at break time.  They appreciate any
