South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - October Minutes October 30, 2015
The SCTAA met on October 26, 2015 with 24 in attendance including Scott from Greenville, Rick who has relocated from Wisconsin and Larry Rabon of Hendersonville who has joined for 2016.
Reports: Everyone enjoyed the Lake Lure Hunt. Two hunters could not come and an unregistered hunter asked to come. So we converted the two hunters fees into 2016 club memberships and included the additional hunter.
The hunt for the wedding ring for the bereaved Howard family at the wreck site on Hwy. 25 was unsuccessful. At some point, Mrs. Howard would like for club members to hunt the yard where Jordan Howard did yard work the day before the tragic accident.
Officer nominations were taken and voted on with no opposition. Officers for 2016 are:
President - Kenny Bracket (since 2014)
Vice-president - Maggie Moffat (since about 2006)
Secretary - Vince DiCarlo (new)
Treasurer - Randy Reece ( since 2014)
Board Members - Robert Weaver (since about 2006), Haskell Staton (new)
September treasury ended with a balance of $ 1,832.94. We collected: raffle - $105; donation can - $8.98; 2015 memberships $50; 2016 memberships - $50; sale of decals - $1; Fall Hunt at Lake Lure - $60. We paid out $1,380 for prizes for the hunt. The October deposit is $274.98. The amended closing balance (discrepancy noted) in the checking account is now $ 757.86. We also keep $30 cash in small bills set aside to make change.
