December 2017 Treasurer’s Report

Annual dues rolled in during December. We collected $1,540. That would be 77 memberships at $20 each, but some were at the rate of $30/couple so the actual number is above 80. For full details please see Bob’s Treasurer’s Report.

If you haven’t paid yet, please bring your check payable to “SCVGS” to next Tuesday’s meeting, where our speaker will tell us about DNA tests and family history.
