On November 18, 2013, the ESU Kansas City Branch launched a special holiday membership drive called "The Gift of Membership." Kansas City ESU members can purchase an introductory holiday membership to the Kansas City Branch for their friends, relatives or students in high school or college who have an interest in ESU events and activities. "For a modest introductory membership fee, ESU members can offer the perfect gift to their friends or relatives—a membership into the Kansas City Branch of the ESU which is good now until June 30, 2014," said Jeff Schnabel, president of the ESU Kansas City Branch.
"What a great gift idea for those on your holiday gift list," Schnabel said, "ESU members who are looking for something unique for a friend or a gift for a hard-to-buy-for relative, will find this Gift of Membership not only affordable but one that will spark an interest in a wide range of educational and cultural arts programs offered by the ESU."
A single membership is $25 at the introductory rate and a couple membership is $40. The memberships are good through June 30, 2014. ESU members just need to fill out the Gift of Membership Enrollment Form which was emailed on November 18 and return it with the membership fee by December 15, 2013. Members who have questions about the Gift of Membership can contact Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
