Membership Drive 2015


Dues are due. If you forgot you can join now. Membership is a good deal for you and financially supports the center. While the center serves around 4,000 individuals, only about 300 to 400 actually become members. If 350 join it adds $12,250. If 1,500 join, it adds up to $52,500. Think how much less fundraising we would have to do if more people took this opportunity to become Members. Members receive discounts on many classes, trips, foot care and massage. Members are also invited to Member Only Events and receive the newsletters in print copy and delivered electronically. Do join us! Thank you!


Membership is $35 for 2015. To become a Member stop by the upstairs reception desk, here on our website, or call 206-297-0403 to sign up.
