Treasurer’s Report (Paige):
*Our LVJBS sponsored Lone Woof Rescue dog is changing from Ash to Laverne (website to be edited soon.)
*Dues are now ‘monthly’ payments. $10/month.
* Don’t forget that attending monthly meetings can get you $5 credits for the next year’s dues. (up to $20max). Attendance is noted each month and an email is sent your way each December, letting you know the needed dues to keep current.
*Be sure to add your SMITH’S GROCERY card and your AMAZONSMILES account, to the ‘Jam Band Society of America’ non-profit help, to ensure a portion of your purchases comes back our way! Tell your friends/family! (We will look into posting an ‘easy’ ‘click here’ link for others to get started.)
Secretary’s Report (Jessica):
*Adopt-A-Highway bag replacements will be picked up at N*Dot this week. They had gone to our sign-location to clean up the mentioned graffiti & noticed the sign was taken off of the post and thrown into the side-brush. The sign is being saved for the LVJBS archive and a new one is being made.
