In 1823 a group of volunteers committed to building a meetinghouse. Today that meetinghouse, The Old West Church, still stands in all its grandeur because of dedicated volunteers who have worked selflessly over the years to preserve this iconic building.


This can be dropped off at the Old West Church on the front table or mailed to the address on the form.  Membership is good for one year from the date of the last Annual Meeting (10-17-21).  Membership is open to anyone over 16 and permits voting on Association matters.
