Finances: David Abernethy reported that January expenses exceeded income by only $923. We discussed the anonymous donor who offered up to $25,000 as a match to any 2021 pledge increase. A question was raised if new pledges were included as matched increases. Also we questioned how many pledge units and pledge amounts have come in compared to 2020. Dick B will get this information for us. The 2021 budget will be voted on at the April meeting.
Vestry Calendar for 2021: was presented by Dick B and no changes were offered.
New sign for Saint Paul’s Church:
Our insurance will recoup $3000 once we purchase a new sign. This is to replace and not repair the current sign. The cost of a new sign could be as high as $15,000. Joyce will get the status of our replacement reimbursement from Lee Perry.
