Montecito Members are truly the best. When we sent out a notice last week about suspending your dues during our closure, here is what we heard from you:
Thank you for the offer to prorate dues for this month. Don't know if anyone else has suggested it but I'd be very happy to put the prorated amount into a fund for your staff, and April's dues too. Hate to think of your hard working staff losing their income
"I would rather my dues not be pro-rated, but instead that money used to help keep staff members whole during this trying time"
"Our hearts are aching that this is happening, although we understand the need. Instead of a credit to our monthly dues, why not ask our members if we can provide some assistance to your many employees/contractors who are losing a paycheck on top of everything else. My guess is most would be happy if employees & class teachers got paid."
You see what we mean?
So, we have created an opportunity for you to donate to the staff. And please, we also understand that many of our members may be out of work as well, so there is absolutely no pressure to contribute.
