Greetings Altair Shipmates. Here is your monthly report for March 2013.
SHIPMATE PASSED: Mrs. Zona Schuch reported that her husband Jerome A. Schuch passed away December 24, 2012. Shipmate Schuch was a SN aboard the Altair 1956-1957. They resided in Oshkosh, WI. Our condolences to the Schuch family.
FINANCIAL: The beginning March cash-on-hand balance was $1886.14 with dues income of $155.00 and expenses of $151.87 leaving a balance of $1889.27. Expenses were postage, printing, envelopes and address labels for the New Orleans reunion mailing. The beginning and ending
savings account balance was $5794.18 with no income nor expenses.
The savings account total has been transferred from my Texas bank to Shipmate Master Chief Dick Stader's bank in Kenosha, WI. This was done as my wife was on the Altair account here in Texas; and, since she has passed away we felt that the account should be moved. When Shipmate Stader and family returns to Kenosha, WI, I will transfer $1000.00 of the cash-on-hand to the savings account leaving enough for expenses, etc.
