Dear TBDC Friends,

As you review your options, please keep in mind that when you miss a TBDC event to travel, to attend a wedding, or to visit relatives, TBDC must still pay the bills for its monthly dance:   operating expenses,  DJ (at least $250), band ($800-$1100). To support the club throughout the year—even when you can’t attend a dance—please consider joining  with pre-paid attendance as a Sustaining, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Member.
