    Myles – Participation in the Members Showcase concert is a benefit of membership. To sign up for a member showcase, you or one person in your group must be a paid Golden Link member.

    Barb – to see or change your newsletter and email options, select Member Subscriptions under the Members menu (you have to be logged into the site). But you are currently setup to get the paper newsletter.

    I love the website. Looks great! However, please continue to (snail) mail a hard copy newsletter to me. Some habits die hard… like reading beloved newsletters that stack up on my kitchen counter. Thanks

    Linguini – it isn’t necessary to have an account to use the website, view events, the community calendar, etc. You only need an account if you want to receive email notifications from us regarding upcoming events, or to purchase tickets for them. If you want to view the Members section, then you do have to purchase a membership, and you would need an account on the website for that.
