I have heard that the Beach Club building is new, is this true?
LLBC was established in 1968. In 2018 membership celebrated 50 years with a week-long celebration. After many professional opinions we found that the 52-year-old building was not safe to repair any longer. After many hours of contemplation and even some tears, the building was demolished the fall of 2019. Our new building was rebuilt over the fall/winter of 2019/2020 and with much excitement was re-opened in the spring of 2020. There is a book at the club for our membership to see before, during and after pictures. Be sure to look for it!
