                              September 20th, 2017


The following notes represent my personal summary of the September General Membership Meeting and ARE NOT OFFICIAL MINUTES.  They are for the express purpose of keeping the members informed in a timely fashion. Since minutes must be approved at a subsequent General Membership Meeting, any updates which would require the use of the actual minutes would result in updates being one-month old.


The following was approved at the September meeting:

  • Minutes of the August meeting
  • The financial statement ending August 31st and the disbursements of $161,718.01.  Our disbursements were in excess of our receipts      by $64,490.09.  This resulted in our General Account being positive by $65,943.86 (Toronto Dominion).
  • A motion was passed to donate $15,000.00 to the Algoma District School Board and Huron-Superior School Board to be used for the breakfast programs.
