2020 Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity

On January 27, 2021, the Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity (form 1728) was submitted for Marysville Council 5534. It summarizes the Charitable disbursements and Hours of service our council contributed in the calendar year 2020. The Charitable disbursements data was taken from our council budget, whereas the Hours of service is a summation of hours received on the dues payment sheets. Thanks to all who donated time of service and documented these hours in the survey sheet.

2021 Dues notices have been mailed

According to the Supreme Council calendar and timeline for dues collections, dues notices can be sent 60 days before the start of the year, i.e. November 2. With the restrictions in place for Mass attendance, all dues notices were mailed (or handed out at the council meeting). Marysville Council 5534 members should expect to receive their notice the week of November 2. This year’s dues are $50 with an optional amount of $5 for our Measure UP campaign (80% of the Measure UP funds stay for Union County charitable organizations for the developmentally disabled). Honorary Life members (age 70+ and 25 years as a Knight–19 for our council) have dues waived and Honorary members (age 65+ and 25 years as a Knight–8 for our council) pay dues of $15.

Payment is due by December 17, 2020, for 2021.
