Listed below are the ways that your memberships, donations, etc. are spent.
Operating expenses - 50%
Contingency Fund - 20%
Scholarship Fund - 30%
Regular Individual Membership dues are $10 per year. A membership card will be available at Homecoming. For dues received at other times, a card will be returned to you if a stamped, self-addressed envelope is submitted with the check. These fees are used to support the organization. All of the volunteers serve with no renumeration, so all the funds go to operations, scholarships, and contingencies.
Lifetime Individual Membership dues are $150. Your membership includes a designated number and name on a Lifetime Members Plaque. If you have not received your life membership card or need a replacement, or if you need to purchase a life membership, we will have a laminating machine available this year to laminate your card. Be sure to make your reqest known at the registration table.
You can request a particular number for your Lifetime Membership. At this time, the number must be 200 or less. Please give three (3) choices. If the number has not been assigned, it will be issued to you. Otherwise, a number will be assigned in sequence. For example, Rodney Allbright requested LM #62 and was assigned that number because it had not been previously issued. Numbers will be assigned permanently and entered into the archives of the museum. Please see the list below of the members who have recently joined and the numbers that have been used.
The Business Membership is $25 per year that includes a cardstock sign designating you as a member.
Lifetime Business Membership dues are $250 through 2010, thereafter $300. Your membership includes a permanent sign with your business name and your business name with a designated number on the Business Lifetime Members Plaque.
