Dear Member of Kettle Creek, We are very grateful for your support as a member of the Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center (KCEEC). This support has helped fund the educational programs at the Center as well as the facility itself. We would not be where we are today without the support our members have given us over the last 40 + years. Kettle Creek is moving into the future with some changes to our membership program. After much thought, we are making KCEEC a true community Center by eliminating the need to be a member to receive discounts and special programs. This does not mean that we do not appreciate our members; their support has helped shape our growth for decades. We have taken a look at the cost for member services, printings, mailings, etc. and have come to the conclusion that we can best serve everyone by being inclusive to all. What does that mean for you, our current members? We will no longer be sending out member renewals or tracking memberships. The discounts for programs, bird seed, and the gift shop will no longer be given but prices will be modified to split the difference between normal cost and the current 10% discount that you receive. We will still be publishing the newsletter and provide it via e-mail to anyone interested. The newsletter and corresponding program calendars will be available on our website, www.mcconservation.com , and also on all of our social media platforms. Anyone interested in receiving a hard copy of the newsletter can request one from our office at any time for no charge. These changes will take effect September 30, 2021. In the past we have done surveys of our membership and each time the majority of members say they became a member to support Environmental Education. Everyone still has the opportunity to help support Kettle Creek by attending our programs, buying bird seed throughout the year, and purchasing items in our gift shop. More importantly those who would like to can donate directly to Kettle Creek to support our programs at any time. As a community Environmental Education Center, we open our doors to people of all ages from all over Monroe County and beyond. We hope more people become involved with our Center and we hope you, as past loyal supporters continue to support us and the Environmental Education programs we offer. If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas please contact me at email@example.com at any time.
Thank you again for your support. See you at Kettle Creek!
