FOR CURRENT MEMBERS
Volunteers have already begun planning for our next membership year, and we’re optimistic and excited about returning to normal. While it appears that COVID may be with us for a while, it also appears that it’s not as significant a threat as it once was.
Dues remain unchanged: $55.00 for the year and can be paid online or by check.
This year we’re asking all members to sign up and volunteer on at least one committee. With everyone working on a committee we won’t be imposing too great a burden on just a few – we’ll be able to spread any work across the membership, with no one having to do too much.:
There’s a more detailed description of the club’s committees on the Member’s Page of the Nauset Garden Club website, but here’s a summary of what each committee does:
Includes internal communications, website maintenance, creation of an annual directory, external communications/publicity, and the maintenance of historical records, website maintenance, creation of an annual directory, external communications/publicity, and the maintenance of historical records
