The GSoF is a Non-Profit Corporation registered with the
Secretary of State in the
State of Georgia. We have dues of $15 per calendar
year, which is a full privilege membership for a family
(all persons residing at one address.) The dues pay
for our meeting room, monthly and special notice mail
outs (paper & eMail), occasional
information hand-outs. For first-time members only, the
dues are $7.50 if joining July (or after) of any year.
Outings are financed on a pay-as-you-go, or actual expenses divided among the participants. The benefit of joining an outing with the Society is for discounts on economy of group rates (sometimes Senior Citizen or OPRs), and of course, the social participation.
Membership and visitors at meetings usually number about 2
to 3 dozen. We have about 3 to 4 dozen active members on our
roster each year.
Refreshments are usually served at regular meetings. Small
contributions to offset the cost of these foods and beverages
is always appreciated! To keep up with technology, we purchased
a video projector in
April of 2009 for use at our meetings. Now we can watch all of
those wonderful trains from digital photographs made by our members.
