Each member of Mystic Valley NAACP’s Executive Committee will personally purchase youth memberships for any one 20 years old and younger who enrolls or renews as a member on or before the next branch general membership meeting on September 23rd the four Monday of the month. In response to the Executive Committees’ offer several branch members stepped up to also offer to purchase youth memberships.
