Dear LPC members,
Was I ever surprised when I arrived at the Mulligan’s Hollow courts on Saturday morning for the Annual LPC Members Meeting! At first glance, I was glad to see that so many members were there for the meeting. Then, I saw all of the delicious food and treats on the table and thought, “how nice that “someone” brought treats for the meeting”. I finally saw the sign on the wall and it started to sink in that this had been done for me! What a surprising and emotional moment!
I am so appreciative and grateful for everyone who was there, or had something to do with planning this surprise. It was great to see so many pickleball friends; old and new. Lakeshore Pickleball Club has brought so much fun activity to my life, but the best part by far, are all of the friends I have made. Thank you for being such a great group, and for making LPC a friendly, fun and welcoming club.
The rain shower cut our morning short, and I’m sorry we didn’t have much time to socialize. We were able to have the meeting on the “state of our club”. Below is a report of the meeting:
