Hi TKC Alumni,
TKC alumni have been invited to visit the new facility called The Club built on the old TKC campus in Briarcliff Manor.
I am wondering how many of you would be interested in attending a gala event at The Club. After talking to many of you, November seems to be the favorite month. I will communicate with those of you who have indicated an interest at a later date.
If you have not responded to date and are interested in attending, please contact JayCee Hoffman cell phone 914-589-2018 or drop me a note at 63 Lexington Drive, Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520 by April 5, 2020.
