Treasury Report
By Laurie Thompson 

Feeling very blessed this month to have so much support: to my regional treasurers -- thank you for all that you do and for those that attended officer's training in February, THANK YOU for sticking it out for a full day on Saturday and then our extra breakout session at the end. I think we got everything covered and there was a lot of good discussion. Do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions -- I would rather you ask for permission than beg for forgiveness ... If you were not at the training, your folder went home with someone from your region or went out in the mail to you. To everyone that helped with the raffles and auction at Officer's Training, THANK YOU for helping us raise money to offset the cost of the training. To Hupy & Abraham -- thank you for sponsoring a portion of our dinner banquet on Saturday night, and for your continued support of ABATE of Wisconsin. Last, but certainly not least -- thank you to everyone who bid on items at the auction which raised over $6,000! The invoices and reimbursements should be paid by the March BOD meeting so we will have the final numbers then.

Okay, one last thank you ... to all the regions who have submitted their Pre-Event reports ... there was certainly a large number that came in after our gentle reminder at O.T. Please remember to get those filled out and to your District Director when planning begins for your event.

The "Cruisin through the Hummer" raffle winners were drawn before the February BOD meeting. 1st place winner of the golf cart rental was Michael Dalton, 2nd place winner of 2 member weekend passes +$25 ABATE bucks to spend at the party was Rena Czoschke, and 3rd place winner of $25 ABATE bucks to spend at the party was Steve Panten. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who purchased tickets and all the regions who signed out tickets to sell!

The deadline has been extended for the special advertising section "ABATE Supporters". If you or someone you know would like to advertise here, the cost is $100 and information with payment must be received with the state treasurer by March 10, 2017. Establishments will receive a minimum of 8 months advertising throughout 2017. The registration sheet is in the newsletter and can be returned with payment to: 1423 S. 169th Street, New Berlin, WI 53151.

The Summer Hummer cash raffle tickets were distributed at Officer's Training -- if your region did not receive tickets, please contact me and we will arrange for a supply to be delivered. Each package contains 125 tickets (stapled in books of five) and should be requested from the State Treasurer, not the State Office. Sold and unsold tickets will also be sent to the State Treasurer by June 10, 2017 or turned in at the Summer Hummer BEFORE the drawing on June 17 (9pm). Tickets are $5 each or a book of 5 for $20. Grand Prize is $5,000, 1st prize $2,500, 2nd prize $1,500, 3rd prize $1,000. Need not be present to win; winners are responsible for taxes.

It sure feels like spring in my area of the state … or maybe just wishful thinking? Have a great month!
