The CCRA is now collecting dues for 2019.  During the September 22, 2018 Board of Directors meeting the dues structure was changed.  Due to the expenses the CCRA has incurred due to equipment age and failure this year it was reviewed and approved to increase the CCRA dues structure for the upcoming and future dues to $30.00 per year with an additional $5.00 for family members. If members have already pre-paid for next year or members have made significant donations this year they will not incur the dues increase this year.  Please submit your dues to the CCRA Treasurer during our scheduled breakfast.  If you want to mail in your dues or have any question please contact:
