Yawgoog Alumni Association
The Yawgoog Alumni Association is comprised of thousands of Alumni all over the USA and other countries as well. The Alumni was founded by H. Cushman "Gus" Anthony in 1980. Its purpose is to keep the "Spirit of Yawgoog" alive and to accent the Heritage of Yawgoog.
We ask that Alumni become "active" members by contributing to the organization in the way of annual dues. The amount requested is minimal, so everyone can get involved. You can become:
- a BRONZE member by contributing $25
- a GOLD member by contributing $50 or
- a SILVER member by contributing $75 or
- NEW members: a LIFETIME member for a ONE TIME contribution of $500.
Pay Your Dues Online. The categories should sound familiar to you as they replicate the CY Awards Program.
The actual dues contributions are placed in a "restricted trust" account with Narragansett Council. The principal cannot be touched! Ever!! Only the interest which this account produces can be used for special projects at Yawgoog each year. Actually the annual dues is a 'lifetime' gift.
Along with the annual dues, the Association announces an annual project which it wishes to accomplish. If the active alumni member wishes to contribute to that project, he may. Although the project donations are not a requirement, they are greatly appreciated.
One other request is for names and addresses of former Yawgoog Campers who are not already members of our great Yawgoog Alumni Association. If you know of any, please include them on the back of your card. Also, give us some news about you and your family for inclusion in the next issue of the "BELLTOWER".
