IF YOU DON'T HAVE $30 TO PAY DUES...
Don't write a check for dues if you don't have the money in the bank. We are now banking with Chase, and if you are banking with them, too, they'll charge you $34 for a bad check. Unfortunately for OSTA, they also charge us $34 if you don't have the funds to cover your check.
We don't want to lose any members, so if you have problems, contact me or your district director and we'll see what we can work out, like a partial payment. Let's not ever be giving $68 to the bank for a mistake over a $30 membership.
CORRECTION TO DECEMBER 2013 OSTA QUARTERLY REVIEW
Very interesting and informative issue! One correction - on page 11. I wrote the article about the MCRC not about ReHome. You gave credit to Mike Berg for my article. Did he write the ReHome article? Would you please write a correction in the next issue? And/or send an email correction to your newsletter list? Thank you for provide us with much useful information.
Carene Davis-Stitt, Falcon Wood Village, Eugene
(Ed.'s reply: Yes, Mike wrote the ReHome article and Carene wrote the article about mediation services at the Manufactured Communities Resource Center. We appreciate our volunteer reporters and cannot give them enough praise and thanks for their help, so this apology is most sincere.)

The OSTA Quartet 2013 Theme Song(Tune: “Music, Music Music—Put Another Nickel In”)
Tell a neighbor in your park
If they want to be real smart
They’ll join with you and take their part
In OSTA, OSTA, OSTA.
We’ll do anything for youse
Send you all our member news
As long as you keep paying dues
To OSTA, OSTA, OSTA.
To coax a neighbor
To join our group and when they do
We’ll love them just as we love you.
We like to help you all we can
So we give a Helping Hand
You know your wish is our command.
We’re OSTA, OSTA, OSTA.
You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours
We’ll even help you with your chores
Give group hugs in threes and fours
We’re OSTA, OSTA, OSTA.
We gotta stick together
To see that we are treated right
And if we’re not, then we will fight.
So get out there in your best suit,
Get out there and look real cute,
We challenge you now to recruit
For OSTA, OSTA, OSTA!
(This song was a real hit at the annual meeting in Canyonville in September. Feel free to perform it at your next chapter meeting. Ability to sing is not a requirement!)
