    How many of your lodges have a budget set up that y'all stick to or try to stick to?

    that's what i am about to embark on... when i was on the audit committee it was surprising where money was put. For instance. The Steward Supplies included meals for stated/called meetings, all the paper goods, and if we had a fundraiser the cost of that was placed under steward supplies when it really needs to be in a category of its own.
    Please understand that I am not puttind down the great job our Secretary and Treasure do, I just think there might be a better way of doing it.

    that's why we need a budget so we can make sure we keep some money...not getting the endowment check this year ( and the next ) will probaly put us in the red again...we will see.

    Even WITH the endowment check coming in we seem to be in the fundraiser mode all year long just keeping the doors open and making ends meet. Can we use some help... You betcha!!
