Ever increasing operating costs such as insurance, website, communication and the running of events, have outpaced the revenue we take in through memberships and event profit. Though we have just doubled the membership dues from $5 to $10, a large number of our members have life time memberships obtained years ago when costs were much lower. The situation was further complicated this year by COVID, as we had to cancel the Great Finger Lakes Bike Tour, our key source of income. While there is some buffer with a $6k CD, the checking account cannot currently cover next years insurance. Efforts are being made to explore and implement any cost cutting measures and any new ideas for income generation are welcome. It is also recognized that many life time members have contributed significantly to the club in many other ways over the years and that is much appreciated and not forgotten. However, whether you are a life member or simply someone who can spare a little extra, a donation would be greatly welcomed at this time.
