We hope you have enjoyed this past summer’s programs and are looking forward to those being planned for this year. Our organization continues to grow significantly. In 2018, total memberships reached over 230, with the majority being family groups. So a significant number of you have enjoyed our programs and have learned a lot they didn’t know about Quonnie. Memberships renewed now will extend through our summer-program season and expire December 31, 2019.
Your contributions will help us carry out our numerous and diverse activities: speaker honorariums, beach walks, publications, history evenings, documentaries, and the recording and preservation of numerous photos, documents, oral histories and miscellaneous Quonnie memorabilia accumulated through your generosity. Accessioning our collection and recording this information into our PastPerfect database software is now a priority. Additionally we will be working to make these materials more accessible on this web site.
More new faces are needed to add varying perspectives and knowledge of Quonnie’s history and to help carry out our numerous and diverse programs such as beach walks, lectures, publications, history evenings, and the recording and preservation of oral histories, photos, and memorabilia.
The cost of your membership has not increased and members will continue to enjoy free admission to most of our programs. Also, remember: since we are an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) organization, dues and donations to QHS are deductible, to the extent allowed by law.
Membership categories are shown on the Membership Form. Dues paid this year will cover membership through December 31, 2019. Additional contributions also are needed to help sustain and grow the level of activity for which we have become known. Both outright gifts and your membership dues may be claimed as tax deductions, to the extent allowed by law.
Thank you for your interest, ideas and support. We welcome your participation.
Dear Neighbors and Friends,
A receipt for your membership will be mailed soon after we receive your completed form and payment.
