South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - October Minutes October 31, 2014
The SCTAA met on October 27, 2014 with 32 in attendance including visitors, George Bullman and Les Ashland (who has moved here from Minneapolis and been detecting since age 12).
We had an interesting program as Kenny shared his good experience at Digging in Virginia where he found bullets, tent spikes, horse buckles, a horse shoe, etc. This was followed by a swap meet. The report on Harold Bell’s wife, Alva: she is still in very poor condition in the Memorial Hospital and will need much rehab when she gets stabilized.
Officer elections take place at the November meeting on the 24th.
September treasury ended with a balance of $ 1,900.19. We paid out $1,507 for Lake Lure Hunt prizes and refunded Harold Bell’s hunt fee of $30 (because his wife was in ICU at Memorial Hospital with a brain aneurism). We collected: money donations for points/raffle - $ 90; donation can - $ 35.50; sale of decals - $ 1; fall hunt fees - $ 30; 2014 memberships - $ 25; 2015 memberships - $ 75. The amended closing balance is $619.69.
