Time to pay dues for 2017-18 fiscal year.

Dues statements are going out this week. Please be prompt with your payment as they are due by June 1. There is no increase this year and if you want to make a donation to the administrative account please include it with your payment. Remember, we guarantee 24 lunches every week and only collect payment for about 15. This leaves a shortfall that must be covered from administrative money received. Money for activities/fundraising cannot be used for this purpose.
