October monthly meeting @ St. James Church
Oct 13 @ 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm

The meeting will be in two main parts:

Firstly, we will have a solemn remembrance of our dear member Gerry Schueman who, sadly, passed away on July 3, 2019.  We will Drape the Charter in celebration of Gerry.  Members will be offered the opportunity to speak about their memories of Gerry.

Secondly, as part of our Business Meeting, we will discuss the current financial information for Drott Lodge.  Members will receive by email, prior to the meeting, Profit-and-Loss statements and Balance Sheets for the period of January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018 and for the period of October 1, 2018 – September 29, 2019.

Summaries of the financial results will be discussed for our two 2018 bazaar activities — our own bazaar and our participation at the SWEA/HoS bazaar.  A proposed budget for year 2020 will be presented for review and approval by the Membership.  The proposed budget will include proposed allocations, among others, for meeting and cultural activities, Special Goals donation and administrative expenses.
