With membership at more than 1,100 and a long waiting list, space is at a premium. The Board considers ways to expand the Club's facilities.
The Club purchases the lot north of its building and benefits immediately from rental income from the newly-created parking lot.
The Board makes a wrenching decision to set an age limit of seventy for the residential program. There are concerns about long-term residents living safely in a building without an elevator and limited maid service.
The members are polled as to whether the Club should expand or move out of the city. Members overwhelming support expanding at the original site.
