Membership Renewals

Membership Renewals

Whew, what a busy year it has been! This month we will be sending out membership renewal notices. Please support us by renewing at the same or a higher level. Renewing online is easy so why wait? If you missed the summer series here is a summary.

Our accomplishments and our dreams are only possible because of you. Your confidence in our mission has filled us with promise and possibilities. If you have suggestions of what we might do, or do differently, we are counting on your input. Use the email link in the footer of this website or talk to a board member anytime. We are only as good as the sum of our parts and you, our members, are the most important part. Here is a list of what we have done so far this year.
