In proper fashion the assembly began with the Finer Points which means Jerry Van Dyk and the Financials. Jerry gently guided us through all the incomes and outcomes of the year thus far. Good work Jerry!! Next
Britt McKerrow had a goal of adding 5 new members but accidentally added 6. Bankers!!! Always bad with numbers. there may even be more in the pipe before the year end. Thirsty Thursday Thursday March 28th, bring out a prospective new member and share the gift of fellowship and the opportunity to contribute in a significant way to our community. Also keep in mind the availibility of spousal and joint memberships that allow us to increase our strength in these busy times. Britt also committed to better communicating the exit or resignation of departing memebers.
