Membership Card Update
We hope everyone had a happy and safe Independence Day!
All men's membership cards have been mailed to paid members. The final batch was put in the mail Monday night.
Auxiliary members with verified addresses will also receive their cards in the mail. Ladies, if you haven't yet received your card please send us a note with your name and mailing address. With the cost of postage, we want to avoid misdirected mail being returned and then needing to re-send. This applies to all members, regular and lifetime, since even lifetime members need new cards. These cards are permanent and will not be reissued annually. You can send your info to PACC.Albany.News@gmail.com, or send a message through our Facebook page.
Both the men and the ladies are hoping to obtain updated/verified mailing addresses and proper information for all members. Please share this information with fellow members who may not have email or Facebook access.
