Re: Friends at the Family Reunion

Hello Hollis,
For the financials, we have also opened bank accounts. We were able to open a checking account in the reunion's name. In 1998, our reunions began to travel to different places. In those cities, the committee opened up a checking account. Our last three reunions were held in Memphis (2000), Chicago (2002), and Atlanta (2004). Since we were fortunate to have money left over from those reunions, our family has kept those accounts in Memphis and Chicago opened (the Atlanta reunion operated from the Memphis account). Also, we've established a system where the previous reunion committee provides the next reunion committee with some start-up money to pay deposits, etc., if and only if money was left over from the previous reunion. The 2004 Atlanta committee will be able to submit to the 2006 Commmittee with some start-up money to handle the upfront costs. Basically, the money has been handled by the chairperson who also takes on the role of being the treasurer. The chairperson and the co-chairperson's names are the account. A final financial report was given to the committee members after the reunion, so everyone can see what everything cost. So far, this has worked out, although I am open to any suggestions concerning the distribution of left-over reunion money.

Thanks,
Melvin
