New Lions Patti & Chris Morrison and Wayne Henderson were officially inducted into the Kernersville Lions Club by Past District Governor Danny Jefferson on March 24th. We welcome these new members.
At a recent board of directors meeting, the following dues were changed to reflect a cost containment strategy for our expenses, effectively immediately:
Our initiation fee was increased from $40 to $45 for future new members. This fee is used to cover our International dues for the first year of membership. Quarterly dues of $50 was not changed at this time. The quarterly dues covers the cost of meals at meetings.
At Large dues were increased from $10 to $12 per quarter. These dues are for members who rarely attend meetings but wish to remain members. This fee covers their annual LCI dues.
