our move.  Bring a new member to the next meeting, have them

Enjoy the many benefits available to club members on the
full-payment plan. A one time fee of only $50 covers all meetings,

Festival, and the Victorian Dinner.  In addition members on the full
pay plan are exempt from the individual meeting beer fee.
