About the Membership:

Your membership helps to support the Mountain Gateway Community alliance.  Portions of the income go to cover business costs, promote community endeavors such as the farmer’s market and the artist cooperative, and to help fund specific projects.  Specific projects are funded primarily through sponsorships and fundraising events, with a portion coming from online memberships.
