YAY!!! It's time to take flight as the new year begins. Time to expand your horizons, try new hobbies (January is Hobby Month), learn more about things to try and places to go that you've had on your "must-do" list -- and simply have more fun.
Claremont is filled with places to go, people to see and adventures to be explore. Welcome to the first issue of THE VIL CLARE eBuzz in 2019. Let's take flight together!
