Why Join a Club?  Submitted by,Beth Allen, Dawsonville, GA
·         a club is a uniting force for people with a common passion
·         a club empowers people to do more together than they could on their own--there is strength 
   in numbers
·         allows people to use their individual gifts together with others who may have strengths in 
   different areas to further their ambitions
·         gives recognition to people for their contributions and accomplishments
·         provides camaraderie for people who have similar interests
·         gives you a voice in its governance
·         provides a venue for education--ours and the publications -- we learn from each other
·         promotes a feeling of accomplishment—and not one of us is as smart as all of us are
·         If no one joined, there would be no shows, no fresh ideas
·         everyone is a necessary part--without all of its parts there is a hole in the whole
·         allows strong and fast friendships to flourish--respect is necessary
