Thank yous...

Mr. Scott Eggart-  thank you so much for your support of our club.  Without you we'd be a club without a home.   Thanks to Ms. Patti Strebel.   Also, special thanks to the retirees for all past support...Mr. Greg Smith and Mrs. Jodi Gibbons.  Enjoy your permanent vacation.  :-)

Mr. Don Roffers-  the founder and heart of West Side Slam.  You've done a fantastic thing for young ladies.  Not only do they get to play a sport they love, VOLLEYBALL, but they also get to make lasting relationships.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.
