Lori found out it would not be a good idea to become a non-profit. Better to be an association.

  • What should we do with the money in our checking? Cheryl checked into CDs –
  • Feb CD that is $5k add $5k from checking and put it in a 30 month
  • When CD that matures in July if we have enough money we should put it into another 30 month and if the funds are still good, add another $5k to it.
  • Online reoccurring payment for the GLA Dues, would this be something we could get set up?

Lion’s Crappie Tournament on the 6 lakes in the area
