Treasurer’s Report by Lynda Warne

Lynda Warne presented the financial statements for the fiscal year July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020. Statements were emailed to members prior to the meeting for their review. The Balance Sheet reflects that we had $676. in the bank and an investment of $8,601, which is as a result of surpluses over the years. The Income Statement shows a deficit of $1,950. due to dwindling membership. As an aside, MGA membership has increased this season by 63% over the year ended June 30, 2020.

A vote was taken and the financial statements were approved and an audit of same was not necessary and that questions for the Treasurer were offered to the membership (see below).
