You can also renew or join by mail with a completed membership form. The mailing address is on the membership form
 
If you use mail you will need to stop by the Membership Desk to pick up your new membership card. Your membership card is what gets you in the door at our weekly meetings--it shows that you are a current member.
 
We have quite a few name tags...If we are holding yours please come get it. Your name tag lets us know who you are, and as some of us have "senior moments" it is much easier to converse if we know your name. Please always wear your name tag. If the magnet is a problem for you we have a remedy.
