The Pickleball Club sponsored an event on Saturday, March 23, in honor of Jeff Andrews who passed away in September 2018, from ALS. Twenty-eight pickleballers participated playing a random round robin. The club charged a $10 entry fee and used this money to purchase a brick for the memorial walk and a memorial frame in memory of Jeff. Additionally, $300 was donated to the American Brain Foundation in Jeff’s name. The American Brain Foundation conducts research to find cures for brain diseases like ALS.

The season is winding down, and the temperatures are rising! Please check the glass case for new hours.
