Please be considerate
and call the Activity Chair or hostess if you have signed up for an activity and subsequently find that you are unable to attend.
 
Our hostesses volunteer their homes for our use, without compensation, and often provide food, beverages and supplies for an expected number of attendees. Please show your appreciation for their generosity and, if you find that you can't make it, call and let the Activity Chair or hostess know.
 
Also, keep in mind that some of the more popular activities often have waiting lists and someone else may be able to attend in your place, given a little notice.  
 
 
Thank you!
