End of Fiscal Year — Budget for 2014-2015 Meeting

This week we held our annual end of year budget meeting. We are pleased to say that we have more money in our account than we did last year at this time and that means there is more money for us to pass on to the library for programming. We are thrilled. Thank you so much for your support. Below are some of the details from our meeting.

Plant and Bake Sale:

After expenses (which were minimal–less than $100), we raised $1169.56 from our annual Plant and Book sale. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen.

Harvest Fest:

We are gearing up for the library’s Harvest Fest, which will be held on October 18th. More on this as the plans form.


Our membership continues to grow! Every week we add a few more members. We are so close to 200 members right now. It would be lovely to reach that goal!
