Weekend Trips by Noelle Newman

We are planning to return to Welch Village again the first full weekend of January 2019. Prices have not been determined at this time, and will publish when finalized.

I am looking into a second weekend trip, possibly Cascade Mountain, since we have not been there in a while, and they have added new runs.





We have found a place to get t-shirts, sweatshirts etc! BIG FROG of Shorewood. at 1141 Brook Forest in Shorewood, right behind Portillos. They have numerous styles to choose from. Custom T-shirts shop for members to order shirts. Shirts can be purchased individually; from what they have in the store or they can also be ordered from a catalog. – we don't need a minimum order. They have our new logo on file – just go in and choose a shirt and decide where and how big you want the logo. Turn around time is usually 24 hours. Trot on over and see what you can find. Let's advertise our Club by wearing JSC shirts!
