Treasurerís Report
  - End of March: $4,339.76

  - CD: $6,123.95 - adjusted balance: $12,138.71
  - Nationals: $11,784 - adjusted balance: $11,834

Nationals Update:
	Irene is no longer available to run the MECTA table at Nationals -
	we need someone else to volunteer who knows MECTA.
	Since the fair does not have the support it needs, we can either give the
	money back to LL Bean, ask LL Bean to put the money elsewhere, or outsource
	the fair to a professional.
	The idea is to go with the fair until June 4th - if there isnít a great
	response, we will not move forward with the fair. Otherwise, the fair is
	on.
	Motion to move forward with the professional and to keep the fair going
	until the check-in date of June 4.
	Vote: 5 in favor; 2 opposed; 3 abstained.
