In general, we ended year close to budget with exception of the $10,000 we donated to the Legion roof that was not budgeted. It was a year to spend funds we had in the bank so we were not sitting on a lot of cash. We ended year with $19,256 in bank with outstanding commitments of $5,627.
R Chris also presented draft budget for this current year 2019/2020. However, it shows us spending money we don't have, so important that fundraising committee organize, meet and develop a plan to raise funds.
