Membership is a Privilege: Groups, Associations & Organizations

These are some of the groups I belong to, follow, observe, dream about one day belonging to.  I don’t belong to the groups for the privilege of the group, but rather I respect the members, the goals, and the ideas generated by the groups.  I love to know what is going on around town especially if it’s a little outside the box.  I am active in some groups, and just a bystander in others.  They say, that membership has its privileges, but as Julius Henry Marx (aka Groucho) once said, “Please accept my resignation.  I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member.”   I belong to these groups less because we are alike and more because we are different but all tied together with a common thread or two.
