Dear BNC Members
Happy New Year!
Our first meeting will be on Tuesday January 17th at the Trinity United Methodist Church on Nash Street in Southport, across from the post office. Doors will open at 9:30 so that you have time to sign up for activities and enjoy some coffee and snacks. Make sure to bring your check book (and that it has checks in it!) or cash.
We currently have (406) active members in the BNC, and many people joining in on our Facebook group who are not members but interested in joining. If you are not already a member, you can join at the January 17th meeting, dues are $20/person.
With so many active members, the club remains strong in numbers but unfortunately only 10% of the members are active in our committees. Many of the committee members have been in their groups for over 4 years and are looking for a change. Please consider joining a committee and help keep the BNC strong. We will be organizing a special event for our February 21st meeting to provide more information on the various committees.
Upcoming events you can sign up for on January 17th, also more information on our website BNC and Facebook BNC Facebook page
