The club had a membership of 95 relatives in 1954 who paid a membership fee of $2.50 per person, per annum. This money would go towards events and meetings organized by the club's executive committee, such as picnics and dinner outings. The only requirement for membership was that each person had to be a direct descendent of Mr. and Mrs. Meyer Atkins.
