Member renewals continue to come in; our member count at this writing is 93 and closing in on my personal goal of 100. Dues at this point in our fiscal year are 5% ahead of the same point a year ago.
Monthly expenses at this point remain minimal and our surplus for the year to date has increased to $2,100. As we prepare the Simpson observatory for the public season, we may incur expenses for re-stoning of the driveway and repair to the flat portion of the roof.
On a cumulative basis, the AAAP’s surplus is over $24 thousand, so we are in excellent shape to fund any improvements.
