The club’s preference is that everyone be active in helping maintain the club physically and socially through required volunteer hours. Depending on the task an average contractor’s wages are currently upwards of $50 an hour. When members help around the club we save a lot of money. We understand that everyone has busy schedules so we offer the following options to meet the requirement:
-Each membership will serve 5 hours throughout the season.
-Each membership will pay a $125 waiver fee with their dues signifying that they will not be volunteering.
-If the fee is not paid with dues it is our understanding that you will be serving your hours. Failure to do so increases the upkeep costs and work load for everyone else. If you decide to pay the volunteer fee later in the season the fee will be increased to $150. All volunteer fees must be paid by 10/01/24. If you are not up to date with your volunteer requirement by this date you will not be eligible for membership the following year.
Those who are choosing to serve 5 hours throughout the season need to select at least one area to help in now to assist us with planning activities and work days. Please check all volunteer areas you are interested in. We will contact you when we need help in these areas.
