Privileges of membership

Posted by Ken Campbell May 26, 2012 0 Comment 959 views
I’m mailing in my membership dues to the only two clubs I belong to, at least at the moment. (I’m not one of the world’s greatest joiners, but there are a few groups that catch my imagination.)
Surfrider is one of them. I honestly can’t think of any other organization that is doing as much to raise awareness about the health of our oceans than the Surfrider Foundation. It is my honor to be the Treasurer of the South Sound chapter; I see first-hand the good that the organization does not only here in western Washington, but around the world. I’m happy to send in my check – it would be a bargain at twice the price.
The other check I sent out today was to Kayak Newfoundland and Labrador. I was doing my circumnavigation of Newfoundland when this club came into existence and I’ve been a member since that very first year. It’s more of a sentimental act really… I don’t get the opportunity to hang out with other club members much, given the miles between us, but it’s a relationship that I don’t intend to let lapse. I will get back to the Rock someday, and if any of the other club members get out this way, I’d be happy to host them. Seriously, one of the most together clubs anywhere.
