A Note from the President

Dear Members,
Our beautiful TCC property is one of the gems of Topanga. Our nearly 12 acres of land is maintained mostly by volunteers who dedicate their time and energy into making it a beautiful place to visit and play. Two weeks ago, our Cub Scout troop collected 7 pounds of trash around the property. Last week, sometime between Sunday’s soccer games and Tuesday morning, hundreds of water balloon pieces were left on our ball field. On Tuesday during soccer practice, I picked up many of these but there are still pieces left on the field. I snapped the attached photo to illustrate some of what was collected.

As our Club strives to keep membership affordable and our gates open to everyone, we all need to be good stewards of our land. A helpful motto to follow is only leave footprints, only take pictures. Please respect the TCC property as you would your own, and make sure you communicate this with your friends and especially your children. We want everyone to enjoy a clean and rubbish-free TCC, and with your help, we can keep our club thriving.

Thank you,
Kelly Rockwell

Our new Board Prez, Kelly Rockwell

I’m honored and humbled that my fellow Topanga Community Club Board members recently selected me to succeed Mark Nygard as TCC President. I am proud to be part of a long line of volunteers who have carried on the legacy that was created when the Community House was built and TCC established more than 60 years ago.

As President, I look forward to forging community partnerships and introducing new programs to better serve the membership. I hope to continue to initiate and oversee upgrades around the property, including the dedicated senior classroom and our new air conditioning campaign to cool the House. With the support of the membership and Board of Directors, I look forward to serving in my new capacity and helping to usher in a new era at the Club while maintaining its beloved traditions. All interested members of the community are welcome to join us at the TCC for open meetings the second Thursday of each month at 7pm.
