No Annual chapter Dues! Donations greatly appreciated.
As of January 7, 2013, RRC dropped its annual dues and adopted the TOOT TOOT FUND, which will allow for members and guests to drop a kind donation at our gatherings and events. We don't pass the donation box at birthday parties, trips / outings. We do collect donations at our monthly luncheons, Domino Days, Party Bingo, and our planning meetings (Twice a year). All major "pay ahead" events such as our Halloween party we do NOT pass a donation box; however, we have 50/50 to help raise money for our Treasury, Birthday fund (Only for those with special birthdays such as 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100). We used to collect money from various 50/50 drawings to go toward RRC Member BIRTHDAYS. As of January 13, 2018 it was decided at our Winter Planning Meeting that RRC no longer will fund BIRTHDAY GIFTS for every member celebrating a birthday as it has become very expensive. Instead only RRC members turning 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 will be given a very special birthday gift bag loaded with goodies).
Funds are used to pay for operational costs that include the annual renewal of our Red Hat Society official charter (ID: 71368), Internet (domain name and website hosting service annual fees), office supplies, postage, door prizes, and other miscellaneous items.
