Join us at NACHS annual meeting

Published 12:01 am Tuesday, October 27, 2015

The Annual Membership Meeting of the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society (NACHS) will be held Monday, Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. at Rolling River Roasters, located at 406 Main Street. This has been a very exciting and eventful year for NACHS and we look forward to telling you all about our progress at this year’s meeting. Becoming a member of NACHS and attending the annual membership meeting is a great way to support our organization and the animals in our community.

The cost of NACHS membership is $10 for youth, $25 for single, and $50 (two votes) for a family, and the membership fees are tax-deductible donations that support general operations of the shelter. The membership terms run from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, but if you paid your dues at the membership meeting last year, your membership will be current through Dec. 31, 2015.

During the annual membership meeting, members will enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and have the opportunity to purchase beverages from the cash bar. Information about the past year at NACHS and the challenges of the future year will be presented, and the membership will hold a director election during this meeting.
