Nancy read the Treasurer’s Report. We have $442.25 in the
checking account, $5,515.00 in the savings account ($3,000 of that
amount is reserved for scholarships), and $1,012.00 in the Charles
E. Bennett account.
The Charity Committee has finished their work for this year. Requests
for assistance will be considered for next year. The website has
all information regarding asking for assistance and forms.
We now have 190 members.
Barbara Szymanski will give a full report on the Charles E. Bennett
activities next month. We have money if help is needed. There were
no requests this past month.
Sue Dake had a meeting regarding luminaries. It was a good year
last year, but we could do better. She will report at our next meeting.
If there are any suggestions for next year, please e-mail or call
The Scholarship Committee has sent out applications for our three

of leukemia. They would appreciate any e-mails. Their e-mail address
is in the Women’s Club book.
Nancy Nettuno and Kathie Cardon are heading the nominating Committee
for next year’s officers of the Club.
Judy Williamson made a suggestion that we raise dues to $20.00
next year. This would fund the scholarships with no extra fundraisers.
We would still have income from the directory adversements and luminaries.
This will be proposed at the April meeting. Please send an e-mail
to Nancy with your opinion on this suggestion.
