A total of $115 was collected at the Oct 2 meeting. This included $10 each from 7 charter members, and additional contributions to "jump start" the JSIC treasury. In addition to dues and cash contributions, Gary Michener generously donated a sage Hemingray No.19 CD162[070] SDP to be sold, with proceeds going to the JSIC treasury. Thank you Gary!
Scott Morrell is presently investigating which bank will offer the best terms to open a JSIC account. There is concern that monthly service charges will eat into the club's modest reserve. As soon as an account is established, members will be informed. Dues & donations are safely stored for the time being in an antique fruit jar buried under the old oak tree, 75 paces north of the privy.
