Vote: Motion by Paul Curwin Second by George Walker to accept nominations.
Treasurers: Changes made to reconcile statements to reflect the financial picture trying to continue to avoid going over HST limit to become a corporation. A significant amount of receivables came in January and things are good. The liquor being on the books is not an issue as an expense and will be addressed appropriately. Expenses were up for the yard and other things but needed to be done. Therefore, thought needs to be done to look at work for the New Year! There appears to be no issue about the prospect of spending money for improvements for this year!
