A. Friends uses a number of vehicles to raise funds. The most important are membership dues from new and renewal memberships and an annual fundraiser.

But more importantly, Friends needs people to bring their time, talent and ideas to the various committees that do the work of the Friends or volunteer to help for specific activities.
