Jim Forrest reviewed the Welcome Inn money situation as of June 30. and as in most end of the month summaries, we have less money to work with than we had at the end of the prior month. Simply, we spend more money most months than we take in. Jim Forrest also gave the treasurer’s report. All bills were allowed.
