All work and no play makes the TLCA a dull association. Fortunately, we're extremely dedicated to the worthy cause of kicking back and having fun. Even better, we'd really like it if you joined us. Check out this page for upcoming events and activities in our area, sponsored by the TLCA or hosted by the town of Winchester or one of our many area businesses and organizations.
