Thanks to those of you who paid your dues for the 2021-22 Lodge year in a timely manner. If you haven't paid yet, you can still pay your dues. Membership cards have been mailed to those members who have paid but not picked up their cards - thank you!
A note about your dues payment... The staff CANNOT accept your dues payment at the bar! To pay your dues, you must leave a check or cash in the Secretary's drop box (clearly marked). Remember, there is an ATM available in the lobby if you need to get cash for your dues payment. The bartender can make change for you if you need to make exact change, but please, do not pay the bartender and then expect that your dues will be properly credited to you. If you must pay by credit card, please use the link that was included in your dues renewal notice. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
