  1. Greetings Jptweb64, we certainly look forward to meeting you tomorrow. We’ll verify that your E-mail has been input into our members list. This is certainly the first time I’ve heard about this, and look forward to getting you the required information.

    We have a pretty active community on Facebook as well, and we’d certainly love for you to join.

    Other than Dues, and potential volunteering opportunities, what additional information would you like? We can certainly answer all of these questions tomorrow night at the meeting.

  2. I signed up a few months ago and have not been able to attend the monthly meetings but I will tomorrow. It occurred to me that i haven’t ever received any email correspondence from or about the club or any information regarding requirements to belong such as dues, events, volunteering, etc. I’m sure I’ll find out more tomorrow night but i thought I’d mention the lack of info here. Please provide any information about the club that you can.
