HOW MUCH $?:
At this time we kindly ask that you to make a small donation via PayPal or cash whenever you participate with the club. (whatever you can afford) It is not required but very much appreciated as this allows for the purchase of new materials, games, Nintendo e-store downloads, Minecraft Mini-Games & Realm Subscriptions etc. and the hiring of specialized instructors (i.e., Yoga teachers, Local Artists, Bricks 4 Kidz instructor etc.) and basic maintenance (i.e., utilities bill, internet & high-speed wifi, sanitizing & cleaning supplies, ordering pizza etc.) of our 315 square foot club room. For field trips, all club members must bring their own funds to participate.
