DUES REMINDER for those who have not yet paid their dues. Dues are due by April 1 to avoid interruption in your membership. Please send your dues to the membership secretary as soon as possible or advise if you plan to drop your membership. We have to send paperwork and dues to renew our members with the MUCC at the end of April. If you haven't paid your dues by then your membership drops from the roster. There is a list of unpaid members at the clubhouse, or you can call or email me if you're not sure if yours are paid. Thank you.
