Members are issued decals to enter Membership Beach. Decals are displayed on the left hand side of the car or the back window. Each family is entitled to three decals (for Mom, Dad, and if necessary the au pair). Decals are only issued once the membership has been paid in full. Car registration cards are needed when collecting decals. Decals will be issued at the Main office until the Beach opens on May 25th. Once the beach is open, decals will only be issued at the beach. Decals are not sent out in the mail.
