Also look for members caroling from 1:00pm -1:20pm on Main Street, as part of the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce's celebrations.

Holiday Party Rescheduled

Our annual Club member Holiday Party has been rescheduled from December 20th to December 13th, in order to work around a very SPECIAL visitor's schedule. We will have our Holiday Party from 3:00pm - 5:00pm, followed by a family Diversity Celebration from 5:00pm - 7:00pm that evening. Along with a pot luck dinner, we will have plenty of family entertainment including NBGC style "Minute to Win It", cultural diversity trivia, music and much more!


Hope to see you here on December 13th!
