This new group deals with Money and Members. Lets start with the money.
Tomorrow, July 20th, we get the opportunity to upgrade from the Ning Free site to Ning Plus which will cost us $200. a year. On May 15th we asked members to pledge from $10. to $20. In an effort to see if we could raise enough funds to keep the Kittson County Historical web site in operation. In ten days we had enough pledges to indicate that we could raise enough money to pay for the upgrade. The following list indicates the name of the donor and the amount of the funds they have sent in.
1. Glenn Browne $20.
2. Steve Swiontek $20.
3. Roberta Nyquist $20.
4. Vicky Hill $15.
5. Danielle Kimbrel $20.
6. Louise Coffield $20.
7. Thomas Wickie $20.
8. Marjorie Vargas $20.
9. Ed Merck $20.
10. Sharon Cleveland $50.
11. Bev Niebruegge $20.
12. Marcy Johnson $20.
13. Georgine Whales $20.
Four other members have made pledges and we await their checks. At the present time we have a balance of $285.00. After paying $200.00 for this years upgrade we will have a balance of $85. The balance will give us a good start to raising funds for the following year. As of today we have 68 members. If each of those members donated $3.00 a year we would easily pay our yearly dues. During the current money drive less than 25% of the members have made a donation. For the time being I would like to suggest that each member donate at least $5.00 a year. As our membership grows the membership donation could be less. If you have not made a donation please consider doing so in order that we can maintain our Kittson County historical site. It would be nice to have a sound balance sheet so we can continue to pay our yearly dues.

With regard to the second “M” = Membership. We continue to meet our average of one new member a week and have reached 68 members. At the end of July we will have reached our 16th month and 64th week. That means we are four members ahead of our average. We are growing slowly and let us hope solidly. I know of some sites that grow as many as hundred members a month and a few that grew at a hundred members a day.
By the end of our 5th year we should have 260 members or more. Thank you very much for your donations.
Your money is going for a worthy cause. Thanks for helping us save our history.

Lon Jerome just donated $25.00 to the web page making a total of $310.00.
After subtracting our upgrate to Ning Plus at $183.29 we are left with a balance of $126.71. Thanks Lon!
