Again we remind club members to pay their 2018 dues. Dues are $45 per person and can be sent to the club mailbox at PO Box 510877, Key Colony Beach, FL 33051. Dues must be paid by the January club meeting (01/05/2018) or we will assume you are not returning. That being said, the Club’s Board will allow any previous member, whose home was damaged severely beyond habitability, a one year grace period on club dues. That owner must notify the club of their situation and not be living in other middle keys housing.
