Treasurer's report: $573.42, no sales since January of the anthology.
Last month's meeting was a write-in, and Jennifer, Jaqui, and Natalie each totaled some impressive numbers, and made headway on their respective projects. The next write-in will be in November.
We still need a volunteer to host the October workshop, please let Jennifer know if you'd like to fill the spot.
