4. What about non-members? Are they allowed to come to a meeting or NWV activity?
On occasion, we schedule educational activities for members and non members. Such activities may be attended by visitors or non-members for a fee. The minimum fees for each vist are $10 for non members over 15 years old and the fees for the younger children are $5. For some of the clinics that use more expensive materials, the fees will be higher. Please contact the NWV at email@example.com to inquire about an activity or clinic that you would like to attend to learn what the fees will be and to register for the event. We’ll also try to highlight those events on our calendar ahead of time. Examples of such fee based activities that you may be interested in are:
