Official Shul MEMO
With Rosh Hashana quickly approaching, we want to remind everyone of our long standing general policy regarding High Holidays seating.
REMEMBER: GOOD STANDING MEANS GUARANTEED SEATING!
Seats will be available only to members who are in good standing. Good standing means all dues and pledges are current through August 1, 2013. Any amount owed to the shul must be paid prior to a seat being reserved. Any member holding a seat from last year who has not brought his account current will lose that seat as of THIS Monday, August 26, 2013. If, due to extenuating circumstances, you are unable to bring your account current, but still wish to reserve seats, you must contact the shul office so that suitable arrangements can be made.
MEMBER ACTION REQUIRED!
All members should have received a Membership Information Form and Dues Schedule to fill out and return to update our records. Please complete the forms and return to the shul office as soon as possible. If you have not yet received this packet, contact the office ASAP.
