All Club Members,
     The CD is due on 4/18/2015, at this time we $10,089.90. In the past
there have been discussing
on transferring monies into the club checking account so the club could
work with it. So, I'm
listing three options:

      1. Keep the money ($10,089.90) in another CD for Scholarship:
      2. Keep $5000 for scholarship and the $5089.90 balance put in
checking acct:
      3. Put all monies ($10,089.90) into checking acct. for the club to
use for projects it would vote on.

Please send Dick, N1NYW, at an email with number 1,
2, or 3 in the
Subject line. This must be done by Friday April 18, 2015 at midnight.
This vote will decide
what the club will do. So please vote.
Ivan, n1oxa

The votes are in and have been counted.
Option 1  2 votes
