Best shared comparative information on the Balance Sheet for the Previous Year. He indicated Current Assets are up as this year’s figures include payables collected for the Rotary Golf Outing and Every Rotarian Every Year.  Those figures will net out with time.
Comparisons from the Profit and Loss Statement indicate Net Income is up.  Best stated District 6600 did not charge dues to the Clubs in the District for the first six months of fiscal year 2020 – 2021.  In addition, the Club is just beginning to meet F2F and attendance is still lower than usual so payment for meeting expense is less.
Members also reviewed the Accounts Receivables Aging Summary.  Best continues to work with those members in arrears.  Board Members will continue to monitor and determine if further action needs to be taken.
Fitzgerald made a motion to approve the Treasurer’s report as submitted.  Farley seconded the motion.  Board approved.
