A very Happy Valentine's day from western Martin County!
Well, we're on track for our May opening and can hardly wait!
But if you can't wait, we'd still love to take you on a Hard Hat tour of the new Club!
Groups or individuals may now schedule tours with Renee Booth, our Chief Development Officer, by calling 772.545.1255 or emailing her at email@example.com.
At this time, we are still seeking to reach our campaign goal of $4 million. Please consider a donation today!
The new Clubhouse features a full-size gymnasium, performing arts space, learning & technology labs, a kitchen, and plenty of space to build and develop the potential of Indiantown’s most extraordinary asset —its children-- through Education & Career Development, Character Leadership Development, Health & Life Skills, The Arts and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.
The new 22,000 square foot club house will enable us to greatly expand our capacity and we expect membership in Indiantown to double in its first year of operation!
