Treasurer's report

About $ 270.0 in funds

New Treasurer (Stephen) to add tonight’s donations

Collected monies for Lotto tickets/$2 dues as decided at February meeting.

"Instead of each GWTA Chapter T member paying $2.00 at each Chapter T meeting attended, the Chapter has decided that any member who so wishes will pay an annual amount of $25 once per calendar year payable by the end of March each year to form part of the Chapter's cash assets subject to payment for the lottery tickets as noted below.

 

From the amount collected the Chapter's Treasurer or his or her designate  will purchase $2 worth of lottery tickets each week. Any winning proceeds will be immediately divided in equal shares amongst the active Chapter T members who have paid the annual amount prior to the purchase of a winning ticket. Each member who has paid the $25 prior to the purchase of a winning lottery ticket will be considered to be an active member for the purposes of participating in lottery winnings. The Treasurer's records will determine eligibility.

 

Chapter T members who do not wish to participate as active members will be expected to pay $2 at each meeting attended but will not participate in any of the aforesaid lottery winnings."

 

Biker Bill has volunteered to purchase one ticket per week for the Saturday draw and have the results for us by the following Thursday.
