We've Changed!

As you can see, the website looks a little bit different. But fear not! Everything that was on the old site is still here on the new! However, some things may have been rearranged, ever so slightly. For example, a few of the changes made were:

  • Careers menu has been moved under Classfieds, along with a new For Sale link
  • About the League is now About Us
  • Calendar of Events has been moved under About Us

Take a look around. If you have any questions or notice anything out of place, please feel free to Contact Us!
