NEW BUSINESS:

 

This is a special note from Dale Wajbel:

 

With are assets being so low we really need to get as many people to our next party which is being held in April next year. We need this party to be as successful as possible. We need close to 300 people so we will be able to have a party again the following year. If we don’t the club will be a thing of the past, due to the expenses we have for each meeting. Last year’s expenses were $7,912.00. I would expect that our expenses for 2018 will be higher. With a balance of $12,076.84 we will be starting with a very low balance at the beginning of next year. Just so you understand, the cost to have a party is well over $7,000.00 and we have to have a balance before the party to guarantee payment to the caterer. Next year doesn’t look good!!!!

We need everyone’s help, Dale
