Do I need a Facebook account to view event details and pictures?

No; however, we would greatly appreciate you as a fan and that requires you to first have a Facebook account. You do need an account to participate on the discussion board though. Facebook has made it very easy for you to customize your privacy level.

Will I become Facebook “friends” with all fans of Montclaire?

No. You have total control over with whom you become friends.

Why am I charged an extra $1 if I pay my membership due online? Isn’t this easier for the association?

Every time you use a credit card to make a purchase, the vendor has to pay a processing fee to receive funds. Since the association is a non-profit organization, we are trying to limit cost and overhead. We hope that the extra $1 is not an inconvenience.
