What do I need to pay to attend any of these programs?
In addition to an annual financial Membership fee of $5.00, participants pay a fee of $10.00. for each day attend. This cost covers transport to and from the Cottage, craft supplies, morning tea and a mid-day meal and it helps cover the operating costs.
When members go on outings, the cost of these is determined by the venue, with only the actual cost incurred eg. Meal at a club, entry fee being charged, etc.
