NEW MEMBERS will receive all 4 issues of our Journals (formerly called "newsletters") of the year in which they join. In the Fall of that year, all members, both new and old, renew their membership for the FOLLOWING year. For instance, if you become a member during 2020, your 2021 dues will be due in the Fall of 2020, even though you joined during 2020. This means that during your first year, you will need to pay 2 sets of dues, for which you will be receiving 8 quarterly Journals over the 2-year period, all of 2020 and all of 2021. You will next pay dues during the following Fall 2021 for the year 2022.
Information about each of the following three benefits is listed in the Journals which members receive, as to where and to whom you should send your check if you are interested.
For sale to members is a DVD of Gladys’ only recorded interview on TV. Although she was interviewed on radio stations, none were recorded to the best of our knowledge. The show was a 30-minute broadcast from Cape Cod, on a public access TV station. With the DVD there are 3 hard-to-find stories by Gladys Taber. This package costs $35 and postage is already included.
Also for sale to members is a 20-page, semi-gloss, full-color booklet of the Stillmeadow floorplans, the grounds of the property, the neighborhood and downtown Southbury. Included are many color photos of the rooms, including the famous milk glass display, the dining table which Eleanor (“Jill” in the books) built, the kitchen and the Back kitchen, etc. This costs $25 and postage is already included.
As Gladys Taber’s books are out-of-print, we are happy to be able to sell some used copies to our members, as many want to fill out their collections. We compare our books to the same titles, and the same condition online and arrive at the bargain prices we offer to our members.
Our Membership Fee for those residing in the USA is $20 (US) per calendar year. We do mail globally, although International Postal rates are higher and must be paid in US dollars.
