Does it cost anything?

No. In January 2013, Nene Hutke waived membership fees. A review of our financial status revealed we had been blessed with enough funds to manage our grounds without requiring membership dues.

However, members are required to volunteer at least 2 days a year during regularly scheduled workdays to help maintain the grounds. Ground maintenance workdays are usually held on the Saturday prior to the ceremony weekend and on Friday, the day before, the actual ceremony. Those members living too far away may meet this requirement by volunteering to assist with other activities.

Please note that membership is not required to attend Nene Hutke events. Instead, membership offers individuals who want to claim Nene Hutke as their primary grounds with additional benefits for their support.
