Changes to PGSM Communications
Because of the seriousiness of the Corona virus pandemic effecting the world, the PGSM hopes that everyone is following the directives issued by the federal, state, and local governments. Michigan is under a statewide stay-at-home order to combat the virus outbreak with many businesses being shut-down unless they are considered "critical". With that being said, the PGSM can not receive any mail as the Burton-Detroit Public Library is shut down until further notice. So that members can still communicate with the Society we have opened a post office box. The new address for the PGSM is listed on the homepage of the website at the bottom on the left hand side. If you wish to become a new member or renew your membership, that may still be accomplished by using the payment module (Join/Renew) on the website. Payments can be may with a charge/debit card or a PayPal account. A Paypal account is not necessary to complete the payment process. Once you choose the membership plan click "Buy Now". The next image you will see is new dialog box. Click "Pay by Debit or Credit Card" or if you want to use your PayPal account click "Log In". If you have chosen to pay by debit or credit card, the dialog box will say, "PayPal Guest Checkout", enter your card information and click "pay now". That's all there is too it. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the webmaster.
The members of the PGSM Board of directors are working on solutions to stay in touch with members on a regular basis in lieu of in-person meetings. Check back to the website and check your emails for updates.
Please stay safe and healthy during these difficult times.
