This is a good month to bring up the consent agenda items. We've needed to do improvements and repairs for a while, but lacked the funds or a plan to do so. We have been steady on income, mostly because of great dues payments and Wepay subscriptions. We are up this month because we gained members, and a few of the people who pay quarterly paid dues in January.
Thanks for supporting the Space. 2017 is going to be interesting and fun for Splat!
