Treasurer's report for January 2011

I have closed the books for the 2010 fiscal year and will soon begn preparing  them for review by the audit committee to be selected at the January 2011 meeting.

The Savings Account Balance on Dec 31 2010 is $9,272.69 with only the interest income for the 4th quarter to be added to this total when the bank statement is received in January 2011.  The  Checking Account Balance for Nov 30, 2010 was $416.10 and I paid Linda Sadler $27.94 for "Sunshine" flowers  for Bob Symes while he  was  in the hospital following his heart bypass surgery in December. This bill leaves  $388.16 as the 2010 ending balance for the checking account.
I did do a quick summation of our financial status and show a profit of approximately $500 for 2010.  When the audit is completed I will publish a statement  to show the exact figures.

Respectfully submitted,
Swede Gustafson, Treasurer
