RE: [dachshund-482] Membership Dues

I want to thank Emily for everything she has done over the past year to build this club into well over 100 members and I agree it’s time to rework things. I don’t see a problem with asking everyone to pay a small membership fee to cover the costs involved and I personally think we should still ask for contributions at the monthly meetings. Maybe just a jar to drop money in so change doesn’t have to be made, kind of contribute what you like, with all of it going to DRNA. Maybe it’s time to “elect” some club officers to take some of the burden off Emily.


Anyway those are just some thoughts.


Sorry Ike and I have to cancel for Saturday we have a wedding.

Hello doxie lovers,

As the web hosting fee payment is due in July, I figured this would be a good time to rework the way our club works to make it a bit easier for me.

In the past I had collected a few dollars at each meetup- either to cover the cost of our indoor meet up spot rentals (some of the facilities charged us to come in)- or to put aside and pay for the web hosting fee (which is due every 3 months)

Our summer meetups held at member's homes will also cost attendees a few dollars- simply to reimbuse hosts for the snacks and treats they provide you and your pet.

The next meetup in July is planned for the LaSalle Park dog park, and I had suggested that people bring a small donation- and dependent on how many attend, some of this could cover the cost of the web hosting fee, the rest given to

Rather than charge members $1-$3 per meetup, moving forward I'd like to collect a yearly membership fee of $6 from each member of our group to cover the cost of the web hosting fee- and also to put aside for any rental costs incurred for our indoor winter meetups. Please note I will also plan to hold another October fundraiser to help raise money for DNRA and will continue to look for additional opportunities throughout the year to help needy doxies (your ideas are always welcome!)

I think this system would make things easier for me, and figure that the $6 membership fee is affordable and lessens the burden of my having to collect money or make change at each meetup.

Please send your check by July 1st to:

Buffalo Dachshund Club
c/o Emily Burns
106 Johnson Park
Buffalo, NY 14201

Your membership will be good for a full year, your name will be checked off of my list, and you will be able to attend all upcoming meetups at no cost

Thank you for your continued support of the Buffalo Dachshund Club and attendance at our meetups. They really are a lot of fun, and I have enjoyed getting to know all of your and your pets.

If you have any ideas for future meetup spots, or would like to plan an upcoming meetup or special event for our club, please let me know.

Thanks very much!
