March is Museum Membership Month

March is Museum Membership Month


Did you know that there are more than 30 museums in Sacramento! Many organizations, including the Sacramento Zoo, are members of the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM). Area museums include everything from fine art and culture to native, exotic and endangered wildlife.  

Being a part of SAM affords the Zoo opportunities to be involved with partner organizations in the community, utilize the resources that other museums offer and bring events like Museum Day to the Zoo. This month, on the heels of a successful Sacramento Museum Day, SAM has identified March 2015 as Museum Membership Month!  The benefits of museum membership often extend well beyond a financial savings and include exclusive experiences only available to members.  Plus, there’s something for everyone as the thriving Sacramento museum community offers memberships at virtually every museum and/or destination...

Child Support Can Now Be Paid Through MoneyGram

Child Support Can Now Be Paid Through MoneyGram

Starting this month, parents will be able to pay their child support in cash at thousands of MoneyGram locations throughout California.

Previously, parents paying child support in cash could only do so by visiting a county or regional local child support agency that accepts in-office payments.  In Yolo County, the Child Support Services office is located at 100 West Court Street in Woodland.  Those who stand to benefit the most by paying through MoneyGram are the self-employed, those working seasonal jobs and those who don’t engage in traditional banking.

“We are pleased that we have been able to make the process easier for parents to pay their child support,” said Yolo County Department of Child Support Services Director Natalie Dillon. “This partnership with MoneyGram will benefit the parents who owe child support, and will translate into more payments for their children.”
