Treasurer’s Report:

(Per Harry via Facebook Messenger App)

“Our August account balance was $3,425.18

We had no other transactions until December.  In December we have had $1,874.80 in checks and credit card deposits and $1,964.68 in PayPal revenue.

Our current account balance is $7,264.66. I don’t have information on who paid us or how much.  Hopefully Roger can tell us that information.  Anyway, that $3,839.48 in revenue in December roughly equates to what we would expect for 98 dinners to pay.  Variations are because of credit card and PayPal fees, and because some Santa’s overpaid, giving us some donation money.”


  • M. Howe made the motion to adjourn meeting
  • M. Beurer second it
  • Motion passed
  • Meeting ended 8:04 pm


Respectfully Submitted
