Budget Secretary Peter Reed presented the budget for 20/21 and recommended that the annual subscription remain unchanged at $245.00 per member. This was approved.
Some discussion was held over the need to retain our PO Box and it was agreed to hold this and other budget matters over until the next Club Assembly.
