We now have enough local businesses supporting The Batavian Club to say that members will receive $250 in gift certificates with their membership cards (we're targeting the end of January to send out cards and gift certificates).

Based on some feedback, we're also creating a way for people to join through PayPal without making a recurring payment commitment. If you want to join, but don't want to commit to an annual payment, the fee is $60 (or $120 for a household membership) and you can use the PayPal buttons below. The price for people joining and paying by check will also now be $60/$120.

To be clear: For $60 (or $120 for a household), you can receive in return $250 in gift certificates that can be used at local businesses. That's a pretty good return on investment ...

I'm hoping to announce the participating businesses within the next week after I have a chance to -- I hope -- sign up a few more.

Join The Batavian Club and SAVE: Currently, members will receive $250 in gift certificates to local businesses -- far more value than the cost of the membership! (more info below).

Some of you may have already noticed that certain people now, when they leave a comment on a story, have a little "club member" icon below their names.

This means these people have elected to help support The Batavian by becoming club members and we want to recognize their support.

The other change we've made is people who are not yet members will get a reminder to join every time they log into the site (our software, in a pattern I've never been able to figure out, occasionally asked people to reenter their usernames and passwords). After people enter their usernames and passwords, they will hit a screen that offers them the opportunity to continue with their login or join The Batavian Club. There is still no obligation to join the club to read news or comment on stories, but we want to remind people how important it is that they support our local news efforts.

Plus, members get benefits such as discounts at local businesses -- a monetary value that exceeds the cost of membership.

People who become annual members will of The Batavian Club by the end of the day tomorrow will receive a 2013 calendar of Genesee County photos by Howard Owens. After tomorrow, no more orders for calendars will be accepted and the calendars will not be available for sale.

We're only printing as many copies are as sold (plus a few for gifts) and have been ordered by Dec. 15, so the calendar will not be available as a membership premium after Dec. 15.

Plus, we still have $5 gift certificates available for the first 60 members of The Batavian Club.

The slide show above contains the photos that will be used in the calendar. You can also click the "view gallery" link embedded in the slide show to visit my photography Web site and purchase individual prints, if you like.

To pay by check or credit card, click here to download our membership form and mail your payment to our office (or for credit card payment you can call (585) 250-4118).

St. Joseph Catholic School will be holding a food drive to support the Genesee County Food Bank this Saturday, December 1st, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the school, located at 2 Summit Street in Batavia.

Donations of non-perishable boxed, bagged or canned goods will accepted and those that donate will be able to pull up and drop off their donation. Volunteers will be on hand to help unload donations.

St Joseph’s is participating in a contest sponsored by Channel 2’s (WGRZ) meteorologist Andy Parker. The school is hoping to collect enough donations to win a visit from Andy and the weather machine. The school is currently in 8th place and has collected 235 pounds of food, enough for 196 meals. Since the contest is judged by weight, organizers encourage donations such as bags of rice and large cans of fruit and vegetables.
