A Message from the Treasurer for 2021 Membership Dues

Dear Members:

Our year runs from January 1 to December 31. Dues are paid in advance of the upcoming year. We will begin invoicing the members in September 2020 in order to provide you with 4 months advance notice so that you can renew your membership for 2021 prior to December 31, 2020.  As a result of our financial structure we have been able to fully operate, while making numerous repairs and upgrades all of which was un-affected by COVID-19 which stymied many shooting activities and programs.  By paying your dues when invoiced in September/October the club management can better plan the operating budget for 2021 and you can rest assured that your membership is renewed.  

Due to the volume of members, invoices will be generated  alphabetically on the last name and sent via email.  If your email address has changed in the past year, please notify the treasurer as soon as possible with your new address (Treasurer@AndoverSportsmensClub.org).  We request that members pay their 2021 dues via the link contained in their email.  This link is unique to each member.  Payment via this method directly credits the member's account, with minimal clerical effort.  If you experience a problem with the link please contact the Treasurer.  If you would prefer writing a check  please make the check payable to "Andover Sportsmen's Club, Inc."  in the amount of $130 and include your badge number in the memo section.  Please mail to the Andover Sportsmen's Club, Inc. at Post Office Box 255, Andover, MA  01810.

Be aware that if the club doesn't actually receive your renewal payment by 5pm on 12/31/2020, you will be dropped from the membership list, not be permitted to access the club property, and your key card will be deactivated. You may, within 30 days thereafter, be reinstated if you provide a written request for re-instatement satisfactory to the Board of Directors and remit your 2021 dues plus a $30 late fee. After January 31st, 2021 you will be deemed delinquent for nonpayment and cannot be re-instated.  At that point, your only option would be to re-join as a new member.

FOR NEW MEMBERS, IF YOUR APPLICATION FEE EXCEEDED $380, THEN YOU HAVE ALREADY RENEWED YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR 2021.  THE HIGHER APPLICATION FEE OCURS FOR THE JOIN MONTHS OF SEPT, OCT., NOV. AND DEC.

Sincerely,

Brad Reichter, Treasurer

Herren Talks

On Thursday, February 7th, Community Relations Director, Steve Pasco along with longtime member and Board Member, Steve Cooper had the pleasure of announcing Chris Herren to the Andover High School, Collins Center Stage.

An extraordinary basketball player, Chris Herren was a celebrated star in his native Fall River, MA before graduating high school. He went on to play at Boston College and Fresno State, two seasons in the NBA – including one with his hometown team, the Boston Celtics – and seven seasons overseas before losing it all to the disease of addiction.

With the unwavering support of his family and friends, Chris has been sober since August 1, 2008, and he now shares his story with the goal of making a positive difference in the lives of others. His recovery journey has been documented in the bestselling memoir, “Basketball Junkie,” the Emmy-nominated ESPN Films documentary, “Unguarded” and in countless local, national and international stories by The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated, among others. Through Herren Talks, Chris has spoken to over 1 million students and community members, sparking honest discussions about substance use disorder and wellness.

In 2011, Chris grew his vision of support for others when he founded the nonprofit Herren Project. Through the organization, Chris and his team empower schools and communities to make healthy choices, while also guiding families through recovery. In 2018, Chris also founded Herren Wellness, a residential health and wellness program that helps guests lead healthy, substance-free lives. The Andover Sportsmen's Club is proud to have sponsored Andover High School in having Chris speak with parents, students and faculty.
