Sign Up for GLCEDC Golf Outing!

Believe it or not, in six or seven weeks, the temperature outside will be in the high 70's, the leaves will have a hint of their fall colors, and the humidity level will have dropped considerably. When that day comes, you should be on the GOLF COURSE!! Please join us for our 2nd Annual Golf Outing on September 14 at the Pontiac Elks Club. Sponsorship and Registration materials are on our website.
