RE:                         General Membership Meeting Summary Report for

                                May 17th, 2017


The following notes represent my personal summary of the May General Membership Meeting and ARE NOT OFFICIAL MINUTES.  They are for the express purpose of keeping the members informed in a timely fashion. Since minutes must be approved at a subsequent General Membership Meeting, any updates which would require the use of the actual minutes would result in updates being one month old.


The following was approved at the May meeting:

  • Minutes of the April meeting
  • The financial statement ending April 30th and the disbursements of $109,381.25.  Our receipts were in excess of our disbursements by $7,198.58.  This resulted in our General Account being positive by $91,765.23 (Toronto Dominion).
  • A motion passed that we approve a donation of $500.00 to sponsor the “Walk for Guide Dogs” to be held on Sunday, May 28th, 2017 at the Roberta Bondar Park      and Tent Pavilion.
  • A motion passed that we approve the cost up to $1500.00 for a backup software upgrade for our system at the Union Hall.
  • A motion passed that we approve $5424.00 to advertise our General Membership Meeting notices on SooToday.
