SOME NOTES ON OUR NEW WEBSITE: We redesigned the website this summer and think it offers many improvements. At the same time, our webstore platform CoolCart went out of business in October and we moved to the SquareSpace platform. Many of you enjoy giving multiple gift subscriptions when you renew your membership, or like to give special amounts, and the new renewal platform varies slightly from the old one.
 
Getting to the point, if there is anything specific you would like to do when renewing and can’t quite make it work out on the new renewal page, please feel free to give us a call at 484/684 7250 and we will be delighted to help you!
