Membership at 942, with 35 juniors on record total including juniors 976.
Time has now run out for renewing, however some exceptions of physical illness or special circumstances.
Another key note that bears repeating:
Due to issues with some members violating the family membership (dependent children) policy; ages 18- 22 enrolled as Fulltime college students NOTE: BVFG has dissolved this option. This change is in effect staring with 2023 calendar year and in effect for renewing in 2023. Renewal forms for 2024 will again be requesting information on dependent in household children. 18 and over can move to an adult membership.
Still seeing some members not in sync with this. If 18 or older, kids are no longer eligible dependents under family, but can transition to adult membership fairly easily. If they miss doing at 18, 19 and older must reapply as new member.
