Hello to 2021! First, let me welcome new member Wendy Manning. Second, let me thank all of our members for their support over the past tumultuous year. Now, more than ever, we are relying on our membership to support our all-volunteer organization as we try to financially negotiate the upcoming year. As many of you know, the Society had to suspend most of our money-making activities because of the ongoing pandemic. This started with the cancellation of the second week of our Festival of Whales outreach booth and continued on through the rest of the year. We lost financial resources from our Scholarship Fiesta, our booth at the Tall Ships Festival, museum picture sales and a possible home tour. This year our membership dues play a major role in sustaining our financial goals.

As a reminder, the annual dues are due every January. The membership categories are:

Individual $25 annual
Family $30 annual
Business $50 annual
Patron $100 annual
Life $500 lifetime

Please remit your dues at this time to DPHS, PO Box 544, Dana Point, CA 92629. Remember, all contributions are tax deductible as the Historical Society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
Thank you again for your support of the Dana Point Historical Society — active since 1987!
