Following is the volunteer schedule for the beginning of this year.

Jan - Darlene

8. Treasurer(Kate) : Hi to you all from your Treasurer .
As usual, I have been very busy with North Queensland Area affairs. Travelling over the past week to visit groups in our area.

I will copy the words of one of our members who helps keep us all together, "Thanks to Shelley we now have a way Key members can make donations online. On the website, every where we have the treasurers' information, we now have a PayPal donate button:
http://key2harmony.org/members.html

The introduction text says:

Online Donations: To make a donation to Key to Harmony with your PayPal account or any credit or debit card, click on the donate button below.

The button also appears on these pages:
http://key2harmony.org/faq.html
http://key2harmony.org/addresses.html

Donations made via the website go directly into the Stateside bank account.

The Stateside account currently stands at $340.11, it would be good to make a donation to WSO soon.

Australian account:
Bendigo Bank
BSB 633000
Acc132832924

May: opening balance $342.21
interest $ .15
Closing balance $342.36

June: opening $342.36
interest .16
Closing balance $342.52

July opening $342.52
interest .16
closing balance $342.68

August opening $342.68

Closing balance $342.84

September opening $342.84
interest .16
closing balance $343.00

October opening $343.00
interest .15
closing balance $343.15

it is great that you can now pay by PayPal directly into the K2H account, please donate if you can as we would love to make a donation to WSO soon. Hopefully we can make a donation as well from the Australian account as well. If there are any members in the AustraPacific area, you can make an electronic transfer directly into the Bendigo bank as well. The details are in this post.

Love to you all from a very hot Far North Queensland, fans roaring full blast in my house at the moment.

Reports:
AlternateChair (Buddy)
I posted the "monthly appeal for new members to the Business Committee" to the main Key list along with links to other reports and the website.

My original thinking on this was, if everyone posts their reports to the Key weblog, instead of the Keytoharmony list, then the Alt Chair links to those reports in his monthly report, it would cut down on OT posts to the main list.

BTW, Barb K. posted her Chair Schedule to the Key blog herself this month and I think she will tell you the process is simple and easy. Joyce has been posting her minutes there for a couple of months now.

And, in case you can't tell, this is a big hint that we need to utilize the Key weblog more. :)

If you haven't begun using the blog for your reports, please contact me and I can walk you through it. It's as easy as sending an email.

Buddy
