Membership Renewals

Membership in South Lakeview Neighbors is an expression of support for your neighborhood.  To help hold down our membership costs, we ask that you bring your 2015/6 membership dues to this meeting and renew at the door.  Please bring cash or a a check payable to “South Lakeview Neighbors”.  Dues are $10 per person; $5 for people 60 and older.

Following the meeting, we’ll send out an email reminder that will allow you to renew online.  (We pay credit card processing fees on those memberships.)  We’ll send a 2nd email reminder a few days later. After the October meeting, we’ll resort to the US mail (which incurs postage costs).
