How do I become a member of the Skyline Society?  Anyone who notifies Friends of the Blue Hills that FBH is named as the beneficiary of a gift through his or her Will (often called a bequest), or through an estate gift during his or her lifetime is automatically enrolled as a member of the Skyline Society.
