No news is good news…Things remain pretty much the same on the new home front.

Negotiations continue with the landlord at the Maplewood property, while other possible new homes for the Bellaire Club are being scouted.

Meanwhile, we have until March 31 to find a new location for the club. Go on by and check out the Dollar Store around the corner – they lost their lease and it’s now a 69-cent store.
