This week we welcome Jessica Santiago of Art Republic. Art Republic has commissioned downtown murals from internationally renowned artists. Jessica wants to help people live inspired lives and through this, invigorate the development of downtown Jacksonville. For her, art and relationships are the answer. 

Last week we hosted Senator Aaron Bean. Fun was had by all in attendance as he ran his high-energy Trivia! Congratulations to team  
"Prez Boys" for their win!

Don't forget we will be having our General Membership Vote  regarding the proposed  change s to  our Mission Statement during next week's meeting. If you would like to be a part of it, make sure to be there!  

Deercreek Country Club

Officials know Deercreek's Robert Miller-designed layout brings out the competitive golfer in each of us with its challenging carries, demanding doglegs and sentinel pines lining the fairways.
Great shots are applauded here not only by your playing partners but also by the wing-beat of snowy egrets, ducks and great blue herons. Fast and true, our greens rise like emerald isles guarded by bunkers and gentle mounding.
