Membership dues are from November to November each year. The cost is $75/year, which includes a t-shirt (which must be worn at all meetings and events) and a snack at each meeting. If you join after April the cost is $40.00 from April to November.

We are also always looking for dynamic, forward thinking adults to help lead the club.
