Your support is important to the success of the Association and its goals. If you have not joined yet, please don’t delay. Just fill out the membership form, write a check, and mail it in soon. Several of our goals are to have the mansion painted, the porch repaired, the arbor painted, expand the orchard, and to restore the Japanese bathhouse. Please consider becoming a volunteer too; the goals will be achieved sooner with more volunteers!
