Spring cleaning with meaning! Keep the VCP in mind as you gather donations or items you'd like to clear out of your home.

Stay tuned for more details!
All who made donations to The Village Club & Preserve in 2018 will receive giving statements by e-mail today, January 31. We hope that as you look at your statement, you'll be reminded of the part you played in bringing our community together to rebuild and realize a dream. We are looking forward to great things in 2019, thanks to your involvement.

The statements are being sent through our new member info portal, FellowshipOne, which will be your go-to source for all things VCP going forward. If you have questions or corrections on your statement, please e-mail our bookkeeper by clicking here or call 772-448-7256.
