Notes on 2016 Income and Expenses

 The year just ending was a great year for fundraising, fiscal conservation, and capital improvements. I am exceptionally pleased by the efforts of the Fundraising Committee who exceeded their projected budget by $9706. The work they do was so important to us in keeping our Parish in the black again.

 The Vestry was also a key in the efforts to keep our Parish fiscally sound. Their wise decisions were very significant in maintaining a level keel and staying within budget. The above two efforts allowed us to spend just under $13,000 in capital improvements and still finish the year with $6,571 in the black.

 The upcoming year will see a decrease in funds from Fundraising Committee as we will not be doing $5k Dinner or Harvest Dinner Dance; they will be taking a well earned rest.

 However, we have received a good amount of pledges for this year and have seen an increase in outside support. We will have a balanced budget.

 This coming year will finally see Father Walter compensated at 100 percent. This has taken awhile and we thank him for his patience. We also give a special thanks to Danny for his help with health benefits for Walter, without which we would not be in the black again this year.

 We have established a great track record over the past several years of keeping our Parish in the black, and it looks like 2017 will follow in that path.

 I wish to thank all of you for making my job easier.
