NEWSLETTER & MEMBERSHIP NEWS

Usually by this time of year if 2020 the $10 dues had not paid, those non-paid members would have been “inactivated” on our membership roster. Since we have not been able to access our data base, everyone is receiving the May/June issue. However, your dues are still due if you have not paid for 2020. Its best if you mail them to 1089 So. Patrick Dr., Satellite Beach, Fl.  32937, as postal mail is still being received at this address.

Remember, most members that have email are now receiving the newsletter that way though MailChimp’s secure server. If you are having difficulty receiving the newsletter in this manner please check your SPAM folder and add 55plusclub@satellitebeach.org  to your “Sender Contact” list to ensure continued delivery of our newsletter.

If you do not have an email, your newsletter will continue to be postal mailed to you.  If you do have an email address, but have requested the newsletter be mailed to you, we have made that change. In addition, also announcements for special events will be sent by this process.  Please help us save on postage while being environmentally more friendly reducing paper use.

Here’s a few quotes and quips:
