The Longbranch Improvement Club

Volunteer

Make good things happen

The LIC volunteers give almost 3,000 hours per year, providing all the club activities and maintaining our clubhouse, marina— even picking up litter on our roads. You can help make good things happen.

The Events committee is always looking for help, from setting up chairs to planning parties. Click to email about events

The Building and Grounds Committee takes care of our historic legacy. There’s grass to mow, weeds to pull and unlimited handyman chores. Contact the Chair to join the next work party, or take on a task of your own. Click to email about building

Our Committees

Events Committee

Our Events Steering Committee plans and produces everything from concerts and dances to the Croquet Tournament and Spaghetti Social. They meet at 7 pm on the first Thursday of each month at the Clubhouse and everyone is welcome, especially if you have ideas, experience or talents about events. Perhaps you'd like to volunteer?

Marina Committee

It's not easy to run a marina with guest yachters, member tenants, running water and varmints running under the decks. The very active and well-established Marina committee makes recommendations to the board regarding governance, operations and maintenance of our valuable floating enterprise. They are almost always ready to hear ideas from members and guests -- and 100% always ready for volunteers to help keep our docks afloat and in good repair.

Building and Grounds Committee

It's not always easy to keep up our facility, especially given its age and size. An ideal Building Committee would include talented and energetic members who believe the stewardship of our historic clubhouse and extensive forested grounds a top priority. Gardeners, landscapers, painters, electricians, carpenters, sweepers and cookie bakers are always welcome to help clean up, fix up and brighten up our beloved historic Clubhouse, the grounds and the nature trails.
