2020 Dues Are Due

The 2020 membership form in the November and December newsletters is not a hint; it’s time to pay your dues again.  We have newsletters to put out, trips to plan, etc.

I think this is a good time to clear up some misconceptions. Dues are not one payment for a lifetime – your membership in the WCSC must be renewed every January. Even if you are over 90 and have a free membership, you must turn in the form every year so that we know you are still in the area and haven’t moved to a mansion in Beverly Hills.

Membership comes with benefits.  You must be a member to participate in certain activities, especially those using city or club transportation, such as travel office trips.  One popular members only program is the mini-van, supplemented with free Lyft rides during the hours the mini-van is not operating.  Members can get free parking stickers to use while participating in Community Center activities for at least 3 hours.

Membership conveys other benefits. You get a monthly newsletter covering all the Senior Center activities. You will be supporting things like our contributions to Meals on Wheels and the All-Abilities playground.

Creakers  please do not use the WCSC  form,  Creaker dues include WCSC dues, and filling out your Creaker paperwork  and paying your Creaker dues will take care of it.

This blog and the senior page for the City of Walnut Creek have links to the 2020 Membership Application that you can download, print, and fill out.   And of course you can mail it or come to the Senior Center and join in person.

 

Walnut Creek Senior Softball Registration is Now Open

Walnut Creek Senior Softball Registration (Creakers) is open now and closes on December 1. Teams are forming right now.

Returning members, log in to Club Express and update your information. You can pay your dues by credit card or check. The TRiCity option is for members who are playing on Walnut Creek teams. If you are playing for another city’s team, you must sign up with them.

New members, go to the WalnutCreekSeniorSoftball.org site. Fill out the online form on the home page. The membership chairman will contact you to set up an evaluation and start the application process. We take applications all year round, but now is the time to apply if you want to play at the start of the season.
