  • Provide emergency financial assistance.

Meetings & Dues

Meetings are the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Driftwood Key Clubhouse located at 37608 Vista Key Dr NE, Hansville, WA 98340. Note that November and December meeting dates will not fall on regularly scheduled days (the fourth Thursday of the month) due to holidays.

Free Cemetery Plot Information

If you are or have been a permanent resident of Hansville (including residents of the Cliffside development) for over a year, you are eligible for a free cemetery plot at the Hansville Cemetery. You can reserve a burial plot by contacting us. In addition to the residency condition, another requirement is that your loved ones provide a flat grave stone and have it in place within a year after burial. We can help you get one for a very reasonable cost if assistance is required.
