Our balance as of the meeting date is $430.06. During April, we paid $11.46 to the Sun-Gazette for a classified ad, and one person paid dues.
The meeting ran until after 8:30 PM. Total attendance was 12 people, including two newcomers. The low attendance was attributed to the fact that the weather was pleasant for the first time in many weeks.
