We held our annual Charity Golf tournament in Strathmore. Thank you to all our wonderful sponsors and everyone who came out to golf, in support of the Spec Association’s Kids Club. Together we managed to raise $20,000 for the club, which gives kids from lower income families a safe and friendly place to go after school.
We kicked off our Annual Calendar Contest, if you have some great landscape shots of our communities we want to see them.
