Our WSC Board of Directors voted on October 20, 2015, to lower the cost of dues to $375. We have done this in recognition of the difficulty some of our families have with this payment each year. We value our members and want to help everyone keep their stock activated. This move has not been done because we have a large profit margin, so we also want to encourage all current members to continue their participation in our unique private swim club.
We have a very special and unique club!
As a shareholding private club, we have benefits that public membership-fee facilities do not offer. With only 250 families involved, we are able to know one another, build friendships, enjoy the privacy of the secluded, quiet location and have direct input into the management of the club through participation in activities, serving on the Board, attending Shareholder meetings to vote on club business, assisting with fundraisers and volunteering in various ways to keep costs low and revenue stable.
More important news!
The cost of a share of stock was elevated to $125 in order to better reflect the value of owning a share of the swim club and property. The cost of $125 is just a small percentage of the tax value of the club and property, so our goal over time is to return to a level more consistent with the actual value.
We are currently able to receive payments by cash, check and Paypal. However, if you pay by Paypal, we need you to help us credit the payment to the right shareholder account. The key information we need is the name of the shareholder and the number of the stock certificate. If you are paying the bill but the stock is in someone else’s name, we may not be able to match it up. If the fields in Paypal do not provide the capability for you to enter that info, please send a quick email to email@example.com and provide that info. We are currently investigating how to update Paypal for the new amount. You may continue to make payments under $400.
You may mail checks to Wendell Swim Club at P. O. Box 917, Wendell, NC 27591

We are also continuing to offer perks for early payments and would be happy to have monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual payments. As always dues must be paid in full by May 1, 2016.
