MARCH 4 to 9, 2011

Come on over to the Bellaire Club to celebrate Mardi Gras, with a big old-fashioned catfish fry Sunday, following the noon meeting. There will be fish and onion rings, fellowship and fun! Volunteers, please bring desserts, salads and French bread. A good time will be had by all. The fun is scheduled to last until about 5 p.m.


After two months of negotiations, the Board of Trustees of the Bellaire Club has decided not to continue lease negotiations with the owners of the Maplewood property. We are now actively pursuing a move back to Bellaire.

The board has sent a letter of intent to rent a new home for the club at 5455 Dashwood, near Chimney Rock. The new space offers plenty of meeting room in a beautiful surrounding, with plenty of parking. Stay tuned for details here! And it is officially in Bellaire!
