An Update on Membership Dues


In advance of our annual picnic this Saturday, we wanted to share a short update regarding membership.

In an effort to encourage membership and participation independent of financial contributions, we will no longer be requiring annual dues for membership. We are grateful for everyone’s support through the years, which has allowed us to remain active and on steady financial footing, and want to encourage any families who are new to our area to join by simply connecting with us.

With the exception of capital projects (such as our restoration of the Beaverkill Community Church and covered bridge), our annual expenses are low, with ongoing costs being mostly associated with the tools we use to communicate with the community (our email service and website). These costs will remain, and so we’d still encourage everyone to donate as you feel inclined. Donations can be made by sending a PayPal to, or by check to our post office box at the address below.

P.O. Box 704
Roscoe, NY 12776

The organization also purchases refreshments and supplies for each year’s summer picnic and other gatherings, which supplement the potluck dishes that are generously provided by those who attend. With this in mind, we’d still welcome a suggested donation of $20 per family from those who are able to attend the picnic.

We’ll also continue to use this list to spread the word about any upcoming opportunities to support specific projects that benefit our community (whether they are initiated by the Friends, or by other like-minded area organizations).

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday! Details are provided again below:
