Financial Reports


Review of new format of financial reports: Report of meeting held 1/28/2016 after Foundation meeting with C. Fesemyer, P. Kaland, M. Van Pelt, and K. Goeden

There was nothing incorrect about the financials but for clarification the reports were reformatted to show income coming into account 4200 and expenses going out of account 6300 instead of all activity happening just in account 4200 so that its year-end balance is zero.
