~ Notice of Change to Entrance Pricing

Dear Members and Guests,

Thank you for supporting our Club and attending our Events through-out the year. We have always tried to offer fun filled evenings with quality home-made dinners and great entertainment at a reasonable price.

It has been a number of years since we've increased our prices for the dances and with the continued increase in food costs, band prices, and continual increase in operating costs, our German Family Society can no longer absorb this as we've been doing until now.

Effective Feb 1st 2016, Our entrance to events will be the following:
Active Members: $15.00 each; Passive Members: $17.00 each; Guests: $20.00 each.
This will be for Club Dance Events excluding Concerts, Festivals and Special Events.

Again, we Thank you for your continued support.

Rudy Stagl, President
German Family Society
