FOR MANY years the Obsidians have planned to own a clubhouse. It was a topic of conversation wherever members gathered. A mountain house seemed desirable to many, a central meeting place close to town was appealing to others. After many years, and after many problems were solved, the beautiful dream of a clubhouse has become a wonderful reality.

For these many years, many functions were held and the proceeds were directed to a Building Fund. The club saved its money very carefully, invested it wisely in Government bonds and savings account. The sale of a town lot at 17th and High for a large profit was the final step we were awaiting.

We have a clubhouse, and a very handsome structure it is. It has taken most of the Building Fund to accomplish. Now the interior must be finished, and the clubhouse furnished. This will take additional money. In the years past, members pledged their support, and many donations were received. The funds were carefully recorded and set aside. One of the stipulations was that members did not have to make a pledge until some visible evidence of construction appeared. Now we have it! We can complete our fine clubhouse if every one will complete his pledge. The treasurer will drop you a note about the amount of your pledge, and ask your help. Too, if there are any members who have not participated, we ask their help in completing our fine Clubhouse.


We have 312 MJB and 173 Folgers.
