GPTA Patrons Reminder


This is a reminder that the second meeting regarding the renovation/upgrade of the Gaines Park Tennis complex is scheduled for this Thursday, January 27, 2022, at 6:30PM in the Gaines Park Gymnasium (same as before).  Please plan to attend to make your voice heard as we advocate for the needs of our community facility.  GPTA has studied the needs, given the budget constraints and we are advocating for the following.  Please see our position/recommendations below.  We ask that you join us to make certain that these recommendations are approved.
