By December 19, 2019Meeting Minutes

In attendance: Kathryn Warren, Carole Somers-Clark, Carol Rybarski, Cheryl Aukeman, Ellie Hajek, Alisha Senour (and Stella!), Heather Perlowsk


Cash on hand: a little over $6700 with an outstanding expense for the PO Box renewal, about $119. Net income of around $500.

73 paying households, compared to 77 last year.

Paid $1250 for security for Halloween.

Concern: if people start requesting reimbursement, which they should, that will change the financial picture.

Alisha needs John Ellis’s email address. She’ll take care of the transition from treasurer to treasurer.

John Ellis will be approved as a new signatory on the Chase Savings and Checking Accounts for SPENA, with Michelle Stellmaker being removed and Alisha Senour staying on.

Alisha will take care of the IRS filing for 2019.

PayPal is still under Michelle Stellmaker’s name. So we might want to take care of that at some point.
