Tennis Clubhouse Renovations ‘Superb’

Contractor Wayne Bruce has done a super job completing the tennis renovations this winter. His solid workmanship has given the clubhouse a new lease of life. A sprinkler system was also added to help maintain the POA's fire code rating of 5. Property owners should drop by and check it out!
