Memberships run from August 1 in a given year to August 31 of the following year. Beginning in August 2016, a 2016-2017 family membership will be automatically included at no additional cost with the first program for which you register in the 2016-2017 program year. Anyone who wishes not to become a member may opt-out of becoming a member when registering. As membership is included at no cost, there is no reduction in the cost of the program if you choose not to become a member.
Anyone who wishes to become a member without actually having to purchase a program can just buy a membership. Family memberships are $6.00 for the year, and a Senior membership (50+) is just $3.00 for the year.
