South Carolina Treasure and Artifact Association - November Minutes November 28, 2015
The SCTAA met on November 23, 2015 with 29 in attendance including new member, Mark Lightfoot.
Reports: Bill Guthke called Randy to let us know he has lung cancer. We signed a Get Well card and Randy delivered it on Tuesday. Robert Weaver asked for the by-laws to be amended to clarify the issue of Lake Lure hunt fees being applied to next year’s dues if a member finds he cannot attend the hunt. Currently, the by-laws do not address the issue. Years back, it seems no refunds or adjustments were allowed.
The program was a turkey shoot using darts and a dart board. Chris Phillips won first prize, a turkey and Jimmy Cochran was second and won a pumpkin pie.
September treasury ended with a balance of $ 757.92. We collected: raffle - $82; donation can - $13.01; 2016 memberships - $525; sale of decals - $4.50. We converted $5 in half dollars to birthday coins. The November deposit is $624.51. The amended closing balance (discrepancy noted) in the checking account is now $ 1,377.43. We also keep $30 cash in small bills set aside to make change.
