"Active Members who reach the age of 85 and have been a member for the last five (5) consecutive years or more will be given lifetime membership."
The proposal would extend lifetime membership to any member aged 85 or older who has paid dues for at least 5 consecutive years.
Motion was made by Jack Hickey, seconded by Rudy Grana, to amend the Fun After Fifty General Policy Guide Membership Section 1.C.1.b to read:
Active members who reach the age of 85 and have paid dues for five consecutive years or more will be given Lifetime Membership.
Discussion ensued.  An amendment to the motion, by Karl Girardi, was accepted as a friendly amendment.  That amendment, which reads:
Any member who has reached the age of 85 and has not been a member for five(5) years, has the option to pay dues in advance and become a lifetime member.  The motion to amend was approved with 2 abstentions
Jack Hickey called for the question.  The original motion, as amended, passed unanimously.
A motion by Rudy Grana to submit the motion, as approved by the Executive Board, to the Membership at next Tuesday's Business meeting.  It was seconded by Ethel Walter and unanimously approved.
