Dear Tilden Club Member:
I trust you are doing well, and that when we meet again, Hillary Rodham Clinton is President-Elect. This election is the turning point in our Democracy and every vote does count. I hope you cast your vote in person or by absentee ballot.
If you are a current member and renewing your membership you must do so in advance of the Annual Meeting in January 2017 to maintain your status as a member in good standing, and eligibility to vote at the Annual Meeting. Your renewal membership starts from the date of the electronic transfer, or the date on a check or money order or, if available, on the postmark conditional upon verification of acceptance of the check or money order.
If you are a new member (that is you are not a current member, or your membership lapsed) you secure the rights of a member in good standing and eligibility to vote if you pay the dues now and attend the meeting on November 17, 2016
The bylaws provide:
Section 3. Membership.
A new member is in good standing 60 days from date of membership and having attended one (1) regular meeting of the Club
Please return by mail, your completed form and dues check to the Club Treasurer, Charles Sturcken, at the address in the Membership Form. You may also choose to take advantage of paying the dues online.
I hope to see you at the November meeting, Toys for Tots (December 4 at Paul and Jimmy’s) and at the Annual Meeting.
Thank you very much, on behalf of the Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club.
