Thank you to all those that have made one-time donations or have become regular subscribers. We could not have had our community gatherings or work toward our dream without your support. Although we still have a long way to go, we are continuing to take significant steps toward our dream of finding land for our regular gatherings.
This year our expenses were significantly reduced as we moved our gatherings online. All of the park reservations were either used, refunded or postponed. Overall, for meetings, we spent less than a quarter of the amount we spent in 2019, even with the added zoom expense. Expenditures for books, bank fees and mail services all remained the same as last year, but due to member volunteer efforts, the website maintenance and rebuild costs dropped 40%.
Member contributions dropped 11% because we didn’t have as many in-person cash contributions, but we were still able to contribute the same amount to our savings fund to acquire a permanent meeting space since we reduced our overhead. Thank you for being a part of our community!
