In a re-ordering of the agenda, Committee Reports preceeded the Treasurer’s Report.
We received one new residential membership and one new business sponsor, bringing the total number of members to 47 and sponsors to 9. Since both seemed to be the result of snail-mail appeals, Ms. Tusa said that we should probably go back to non-electronic membership appeals.
The Treasurer’s report, as follows, was read by Diane Christie and was unanimously accepted on a motion from Maureen Garvey and seconded by Marion Ormsten.
Total in Savings: $9,997.22
Total in Checking: $513.67
