KATHLEEN KELLER (Incumbent)

Click here to see a brief biography of each candidate.
Due to Club's Closing the Election has been postponed for the time being. We will let you know of election plans as soon as available.
UPDATE 11/6 a.m.:
CLUB RENOVATIONS CONTINUE.
As of this morning we do not have a firm completion date from the roofer. The City Inspector is involved so we hope we have a quick and effective resolution shortly.
The good news is that we have made some progress on other planned renovations. The interior of the building has been painted and the old carpet taken out. New carpet will be installed as soon as the roof has been completed. The exterior of the building will be still be treated/painted to prevent moisture from seeping into the building.
We will let you know as soon as we have any further useful information. Again, thank you for your support and continued patience. We are all looking forward to getting back into our ‘new and better’ building and our normal bridge routine as soon as possible.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE BEGINNING BRIDGE WILL CONTINUE TO BE HELD ON TUESDAYS AT 9:00 A.M. AT the SCHNEBLY CENTER .
OUR BRIDGE FRIENDS AT OTHER NEARBY CLUBS HAVE REACHED OUT AND OFFERED TO HAVE OUR MEMBERS PLAY AT THEIR CLUBS AT THEIR ‘MEMBER’ PRICES RATHER THAN AS GUESTS DURING OUR REPAIRS. Click here for further information.
