FLC Seniors Outdoor Club

Vandalism Alert:  Car vandalism can happen anywhere, at any time, even while we are enjoying a walk with friends.  We, as individuals, cannot stop this crime, we can only minimize its impact on our lives.  Remove all money and documents with your personal information and home address from your vehicle when you are away from your vehicle. This may not stop vandalism, but it will prevent your identity theft and reduce your risk of home break-in.  

All events and activities are for Outdoor Club members only. Sorry, no guests allowed. Carry your Medical Emergency Card on ALL Outdoor Club outings.
