September Dues are Due!

September dues will be due September 1st.  If you are only paid through May on your dues you are going to assess a reinstatement fee from the U.A. in the amount of $50.00.  This is a charge we cannot keep you from getting if you are that far behind.

Please contact the Business Office (740) 439-3623 and speak with either Heather or Esther in regards to your dues payments.

*** If you are out of town working do not just assume that your dues are being paid.  Out of town locals are not required to pay the 1% back every month and many wait 3 + months to do so making you behind delinquent.  It is better to check in with the office than get a reinstatement fee.
