It’s easy to become a member at Multi-Lakes, Guests are allowed to come and experience the club before joining and get to know the membership. Membership is on a sponsored basis so you need a current member to sponsor you. You would fill out an application and pay a $40.00 Application fee that will go towards your first year’s dues, you will have to attend a new member orientation meeting that would explain to you your requirements for the first year. Our club is a volunteer organization which means that most of our work around the club is don’t on a volunteer basis for which you ear club credits or hours. As a probationary member, you have to volunteer for 24 club hours (credits) and attend 12 club functions in the first year, it’s that simple.
After your application is accepted you issued a membership card as a conditional member, would will be able to use all the club’s facilities at member prices. This membership extends to your immediate family that lives in the same household as you. So you and your wife and children may use the clubs facilities at member prices. The only thing that your family can’t do that you can is order alcohol at the club bar or vote at meetings. A good way to get to know the membership is to attend one of our events or meetings. Our general membership meetings are the third (3rd) Wednesday of the month, this is a dinner meeting and you may purchase a (cook your own at our outdoor grill) steak dinner, or purchase a burger and fries at our kitchen. Or come to our Fish fry on Friday evenings along with our Friday night classic car cruse (May thru Sept) and check out all the classic cars.
If you are attending a meeting, tell the Sargent of Arms at the front desk that you are my guest, and ask him to send you my way. I will introduce you to some of the members.
If you have any more questions feel free to contact me, the membership secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
