Special Gift for Your Membership Renewal
This year’s renewal mailing includes a special reward.
As a thank you for a prompt response to the 2017 renewal effort, members returning their payment will be sent an acknowledgement card granting their choice of a free regular-priced book from the BookCellar.
Details will be included in the mailing to members.
Also, any person who joins as a new member will be granted this reward. Membership will begin right away and extend through December 2017.
So, please return your membership envelopes as soon as you can. This will help us save the cost of a second reminder mailing.
