Remember the Four-Way Test
Calendar Year Club Dues Status
As of December 28, we are holding steady with 46 of the club’s 48 active members, or 95.8%, having paid their annual dues.  There remain 2 members with dues outstanding.  Club membership has not changed since the prior update, and is holding at 48.  Club members may pay using the online Dues & Billing System, which requires a credit or debit card, or through the U.S. Mail by check.  As of this edition of the Spokesman, only 8 members' Happy Bucks pledges, totaling $190, are outstanding.  Another statement will be issued on January 1.
Online Payment Interruption in January
Rotarians may experience online payment and donation interruptions on January 16 - 17, 2021 due to the vendor's planned maintenance windows.  Paya Bankcard will be performing scheduled maintenance on its firewall firmware on Saturday, January 16, 2021, between 12:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. EST.  Paya will be performing scheduled maintenance on its database systems on Sunday, January 17, 2021 between 12:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. EST.
