I'm writing to inform you we now have the ability to pay our annual dues and donations online. If you received your annual dues notice via an e-mail, you may have noticed the "Pay Now" button at the bottom of the e-mail. By clicking the "Pay Now" button, one will be taken to a secure screen where dues and donations may be made for a nominal convenience fee.
If one uses a traditional credit card, you as the payer will be charged the convenience fee plus a credit card processing fee or "surcharge". If one uses a check or debit card, the lodge is charged the debit card processing fee, thus reducing the effectiveness of your dues payment.
As a result, if you choose to use the online method of payment, we are requesting you only use a traditional credit card so the lodge can avoid the fee OR that you include the "cover my debit card fees" donation if you are not charged a surcharge.
Of course, one can still pay their dues using a check and mailing their payment to:
