It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend and long-time member, Art Montano. Art departed this world on Christmas Eve, leaving a void that cannot be filled and a legacy that will forever be remembered.

Art was an integral part of our social polo box community, and his presence was a cornerstone of our shared experiences. He brought warmth, joy, and a genuine love for life that touched the hearts of everyone fortunate enough to know him.
