Board of Directors Make a Change to Organizational Dues


The Board of Directors took action during their December 2014 meeting to raise the organizational membership dues.  Effective October 1, 2015, organizational membership dues will be $100.00.  (Individual membership dues will remain $20.00 per person.)




Membership Challenge


Also at their December meeting, the Board made the decision to host a Membership Challenge in 2015. Any member who brings in five (5) NEW members by September 30, 2015 will receive a free membership for 2016.  This can be five NEW individual members, five NEW organizational members or a combination of the two – for a total of five NEW members.

"Mommy, Where Are You?”

This one-man play tells the story of a family's journey from when their matriarch is diagnosed with Alzheimer's through the time of her death. You will laugh and cry, while being entertained... It is both powerful and moving!
