BWC Beautification:
We are seeking volunteers to help us keep the area around our clubhouse nice and tidy. Since we are in a high-traffic area surrounded by trees, our clubhouse and the strip along Park Road need periodic cleanup.

If you are interested in more information or signing up for a cleanup shift, send us an email.
