For the 2016 calendar year, the club lost $1681.40.
So, that was not a great year financially, but we are still able to operate with the modest reserve that we have in our accounts.
Our loss was largely due to a couple of our dinner/dance parties that were not as well attended as in previous years so a number of suggestions were made with respect to those parties.
Please make your reservations early so that a decision on cancellation can be made. It was suggested that a slightly higher ticket price be instituted on both our dinner/dance parties as well as our smaller afternoon events.
Ath the AGM, a motion was made and passed to increase our annual membership dues to $20 per person per year. We have not seen an increase in these dues for a long, long time so we are sure that our members will be pleased to support this change and others in order to help our club deliver this qualtiy newsletter and the many quality cultural events that we have come to expect from our club.
Respectfully, Tom Hedekar - Treasurer
