Attendance Report:

Financial Report:

New payment portal added this year in addition to Paypal, CashMe.  Paypal fees were discussed again.  It was determined that the amount paid in fees is not exorbitant so Paypal will remain an option for submitting payments.

Late Fees:

Late fees were introduced 3 years ago to encourage family members to register and pay their dues before arriving to reunions.  We voted to move the date that late fees occur from two weeks prior to reunions to June 1st.

SAH Scholarship Recipient:

This year (2017), the scholarship recipient was Samuel Dancer.  He is the first recipient to send a written thank you to the family.  The letter was read aloud at the meeting.  A copy of it can be found here.

Commitments to fund the next few years were restated.
