Membership Drive 2015

The benefits of being a Center member are many. 2015 membership is $35 and runs until December 31st, 2015. We serve around 4,000 individuals each year but usually only about 9 to 10% actually join as members. Our goal is to add 200 additional members in 2015. We want people to have the benefits that members receive, things cost less for members. An additional 200 members will also bring in an additional $7,000 for our programs and services. Please introduce your friends to the Center and all we offer. If you attend the Center, but are not a member please consider becoming a member. You will save money in the long run if you participate in classes, trips, foot care, etc. plus you are invited to member only events and you have the satisfaction of supporting your Center.
