MCHS Updates

August 20:

We may still be having issues with our website. While everything should be back to normal we are still checking for bugs and errors. If you notice any bugs and errors yourselves please do inform us. It may not be fixed immediately but it will be addressed.

A quick housecleaning note - if you have tried our Videos section recently there is a good chance that they did not work. We were having some technical issues with them unfortunately. However, those should be cleared up for the most part and you should now be able to view them again!

Our Summer newsletter will be coming out soon so members should be on the lookout for that sometime nextweek!

We've continued to have a very busy summer with many fun events and group visits. Check out the pictures below!
