February 2020 Director’s Letter

Big News! There’s a special this month on Membership dues! Renew your membership NOW and get a $5 gift certificate to use at Re-In-Carnation Thrift Store! This is how it works. Buy a membership and get a $5 gift certificate to Re-In-Carnation mailed to you. The certificate must be used in one visit and cannot be redeemed for cash. The certificate will be mailed to you (new and renewal) with your postcard acknowledgement. (It will NOT be given out at the reception desk at time of payment). You can renew now even if your annual membership is not expired yet. For example, if a person renews a membership that does not expire until April – their new membership will go until April of 2021. This certificate can only be used in one visit, so if you don’t spend the full $5, there is no cash or credit given, but what a fun way to have mad money to spend! There are so many wonderful items to choose from!

Consider buying a friend a membership or buying a membership for someone who can’t afford one. Membership is only $60 for one person or $75 for the household. There’s a membership form in this newsletter!
There is also 10% off on a Lifetime Membership. Pay once then never again. You get your name engraved on a plaque outside the Great Room and an invite to our annual donor dinner that year. What a great way to make a mark on the Senior Center and leave a legacy. A lifetime membership for one person is currently $500, so in February you can get it for $450. A lifetime membership for a couple is $750!
