Does the membership fee cover all my expenses for participation?
Your membership fee primarily covers the administrative expenses of running the club. Such expenses might include advertising, website hosting fees, printing and postage for mailings, etc. It will also help defray the cost of some of the events the club organizes, like our Children's Holiday Party. It will not cover your admission fee to Fieldtrip locations or Moms Night Out activities.
