Hello everyone!

I hope summer treated you all well.  First off I wanted to extend a big thank you to David Holland for serving as Dads Club President and to Brad McCrea for serving as VP of Work Days last year. 

Thanks guys!

Email Lists

I’ve inherited the email list from David Holland.  We will be moving to a subscribe/unsubscribe list but for now it is manual so if your child graduated out of Montclair I have no way of knowing.  If you no longer wish to receive updates from us just drop me a line.  Also if you know someone who does want to know what the Dads Club is up to drop me their email.

Web Site

We have a website!  Here is the url:

Please bookmark it. I’m working to keep the calendar up to date so you can use it as a reference for what’s upcoming.
