Hello fellow Roy Carpenter’s Beach Association (RCBA) members and any potential new members.
Many thanks to those that came out to the first membership drive. By request we have scheduled a second drive on June 12th from 10am to noon for those that could not make the first one. We really need your support to continue the RCBA mission of offering social, recreational, and family-oriented activities over the beach season.
We look forward this year to getting back to many of the events that make us so unique. Rest assured your dues and donations are vital to our ability to hold events such as the RCBA cakewalk, pots and pans parade, and concerts in the field. We are so happy that we can bring these and more back for the 2021 beach season. As you know this year, we have shifted our focus to our outside events as a way to stay safe and start getting back to normal. Since our last update we are happy to announce we have figured out a way to add the fireworks back onto the calendar. Our membership dues of $40 covers Association overhead expenses (insurance, fees, website, defibrillator maintenance, cleaning products, etc.) and several events. However, as you know the dues alone are not enough.
To cover the rest of our calendar including the fireworks we rely on your generous donations in addition to the membership dues. Also, to accommodate all the disruptions of last year the scholarship committee, RCBA board and officers have implemented a membership grace period. This would allow a member that may have missed last year’s membership drive to pay both 2020 and 2021 membership dues and remain a member in good standing, thus eligible for the 2021 scholarship program.
As mentioned previously to make it quick and easy to join, as well as, cut down on collectors going door to door we are holding a second membership drive June 12th from 10 am to noon at the Firebarn.
Please come with the following: check made payable to RCBA or cash, cottage #, home address and email. The membership drive will allow you to pay your dues, receive this year’s 2021 RCBA calendar of events, enter the 50 / 50 rent raffle($10), and make a donation quickly and easily.
Like other organizations we would love to end our membership drive early and not have to impose on your time at the beach. Please plan to attend the Membership drive June 12th from 10 am to noon @ the Firebarn so we can get this piece of RCBA business behind us and focus on the fun events we have planned for 2021.
Thanks in advance for all your support.
RCBA board of directors,
Samatha Grayeck Winkler
