Just nonsense. Numerous academic studies have touted the positive benefits of homeownership for
individuals, families, and communities. These studies can be found in economics, political science, sociology, and medical journals.

    Dear Members,

    It is time for our annual Membership Drive.  We are kicking off the Drive by having a Membership "Rush" Party on June 19th at Brandt's Barn. ALL MEMBERS ARE WELCOMED! WCNHBA encourages each member to bring a potential new member with you as your guest.

    The Membership Committee is grilling steaks for EVERYONE!  So come hungry because there will be PLENTY of food.  

    There will be lots of fun activities. Bring your golf clubs (driver and chipper) and some old golfballs as you will have a chance to chip golfballs into a floating tire in the middle of the lake and have a chance to win the longest drive. Anyone want to try Ladder Ball or Bocce Ball? Here is your opportunity!

    Any new member signed up (check and application given to the committee) by the 
    end of the evening of June 19 will  sign up now
    pay just $300 for their dues the first year.  That is a $60 discount! Does your potential member have other plans that evening?  Just bring his signed application and check to the Party! Those members of WCNHBA who sponsor a new member who signs up the evening of June 19 receive a package of steaks to take home.
