2017 Early Bird Membership Renewal Winners
456 members renewed their 2017 membership by November 30th. All those who paid by that date were automatically entered into a draw for a refund of their 2017 dues. The three winners this year, drawn by Zone Commander, Dale Johnston, at the Election General Meeting on Sunday, December 11th, were Dionne Antonia MacKenzie, Alan Guise and Gary Besler. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to the rest of the members who renewed early. Those of you who have not yet renewed, please do so before the end of this month.
