Treasurer’s Report
We reviewed staff time sheets and the Warrant for January.

Two issues with the bills this month. Dead River was overpaid for propane so we have a credit with them at this point of $585. Theresa will follow up to be sure that bill is being paid regularly for the discount.

Green Mountain Power bill of $190.48 was not on the Warrant. Theresa will follow up with the Treasurer about getting that bill paid.

Total received from our fundraising letter is $7,110.

Request from the Friends is still pending. Theresa will follow up with their treasurer about our request for this year’s allocation.

Another group for slightly older children has been taking place, the focus is on cooperative storytelling
Interest from a patron in possibly starting a chess club.
Use of the Community Room has also been steady.
