Due to the rising cost of food and the increased cost of catered meals, the board of officers and directors has been forced to increase the per-meal calculation to $ 16.00 per meal in the next quarter billing.  Thank you for your understanding.  A few members are enjoying the "full membership" billing status;  continuation at the current price is not sustainable and options are currently under board study for a full membership that is sustainable and provides advantages for members.  To quote Milton Friedman, "there is no free lunch."
