From our Treasurer

This will be my last report as Treasurer. It has been an adventure, and it has been my pleasure to serve in this capacity. During this period we have had a steady membership averaging 380 members. Our income from dues is not quite enough to cover expenses for that period, but rally income has more than made up the difference. This was mainly due to two rallies in 1999. We were able to treat the club to a dinner at Mariposa and the rental of a golf cart. We have put $17,000 in an interest bearing account, which is available for transfer to the checking account upon phone request.

Bill Shumway will be the treasurer as of the December Statement - on or about 12/11/01.

Miki Singleton
