   The Perfect Holiday Gift for Friends:             A Membership in the ESU

Dear ESU Kansas City Members—

The ESU Kansas City Branch is offering a special 6-month Holiday ESU Gift of Membership for new members good through June 30, 2017 (the end of our fiscal year) at these discounted introductory rates:

$35 for a Single Membership

$50 for a Couple Membership

If you're looking for a unique gift for that special person who…

● Enjoys stimulating educational lectures by locally and internationally prominent guest speakers on a wide variety of topics, or

● Likes to attend plays, concerts and other performing arts programs, or

● Enjoys social gatherings, or

● Enjoys participating in volunteer experiences that make a difference in the lives of students and teachers, or

● Appreciates the importance of promoting the English language…

Then, what could be a better gift than a special introductory Gift of Membership in our own ESU Kansas City Branch?

This would be a GREAT GIFT for---

● A friend of yours who has been thinking of joining the ESU, or

● A relative, young or older, who you know would enjoy the benefits of an ESU membership, or

● A student in high school or college whose course-work would be compatible with our ESU activities and goals as an organization such as a major in Theatre Arts, English, Debate, History, Humanities, Linguistics etc.

This will allow the gift recipient to participate in all remaining ESU activities through the end of the fiscal year--and we have many great events planned such as our Annual Holiday Brunch on January 15, 2017 and our biggest event of the year--our 33rd Annual Shakespeare Competition on Sunday, February 19, 2017, and other surprises coming as well!

4.  We will arrange to get your gift certificate to you as soon as possible after receiving the Gift of Membershipform and check.

7.  While this introductory Gift of Membership expires June 30, 2017, we would welcome the gift recipient to remain a member of our branch and, at that time, invite him or her to renew their membership at the beginning of the new fiscal year (July 1, 2017) at the regular membership rates for which they would qualify.
Please take a moment to think about those you know who would enjoy this Gift of Membership in the ESU Kansas City Branch. This would be a great gift for a younger person on your gift list. This is not only a unique gift idea but also a way to expand and grow our membership base. Don't forget the December 17, 2016, deadline for returning the attached Gift of Membership Enrollment Form (Click here).
