Happy Holidays!

The Origami Society of Toronto wishes everyone a joyful holiday season, potentially filled with much festive folding!

If you were unable to attend our Year-End Party and are looking to extend your membership, are thinking of joining us in the new year, or give the gift of an OST membership, now’s the perfect time! Pre-pay before December 31, 2014 to receive a personalised membership card for renewing ahead of the new year. Just drop us a line (attn: Margaret) with your name (and your recipient’s name if it’s for someone else) and your preferred method of payment. We accept cheques, e-transfers and cash (drop-off available on request).

Having advance notice helps us tremendously in planning and handling special requests. Of course, you’re still welcome to join or renew anytime of the year, but we only issue custom cards once annually.

Thanks for your support and see you next year!
