How do I know if it is time to renew my EWOC membership?

Secretary/Treasurer John Beck occasionally sends a paper, snail-mail version of the newsletter to every recent participant's home, regardless of their subscription or membership status.

The expiration date of your membership/subscription is shown to the right of your name on the address label. The first letter indicates the type of membership -

"M" for individual members,
"F" for family members and
"N" for non-member newsletter subscriptions.

The second letter indicates how you receive the newsletter -
"E" for e-mail only and
"N" for newsletter by U.S. mail.

The numbers indicate the month and year in which your membership or subscription will expire.

If you are not now a member, consider joining. Membership benefits include reduced fees at local events. A one-year subscription to this newsletter, with or without membership, may be obtained for $5 per year. E-mail newsletter subscriptions are free.
