2019-2020 Good Samaritan Home Association Membership

From the desk of Sarah Vahlkamp, Director of Development and Public Relations

   Several people have asked what they need to
do to be invited to the Annual Meeting in October.  You just need to become an Association
Member.  Becoming a Member of The Good
Samaritan Home Association is how YOU support the Programs and Services of Our
Home.  We always welcome new
members.  If you haven’t given in the
past, please consider starting.  

  
Memberships are individual, so a couple needs to give individually.  Memberships are made on a fiscal year basis
starting October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.

   To pay your 2019-2020 Annual Association Membership, please contact me at 217-223-8717, ext. 4240.
