A special welcome and introduction was extended to the out-state members from Rochester, Mankato, Dresbach, and several locations in WI who joined us at the meeting.

 

Members were brought up-to-date on the 501 (c) (3) designation and how it will benefit the club and members. Yes, the annual membership dues are deductible.

The meeting handout covering deductions in detail will be sent to all members.

 

The KH4M proposed donation amount of $250 was discussed. This amount buys us

a listing (no logo) on the QSL card. $500 gets us the same thing. It would take $750 to get our logo listed and our donation policy and BODs said no thank you!
