Sharron Mathews, Treasurer, reported at the Family Business meeting of August 7, 2004, that funds were sufficient in the Family Reunion General Fund, to satisfy the total expenses incurred by the 2004 Reunion meal.
The General Fund is maintained at Wilson & Muir Bank & Trust Co. in Bardstown, KY. This fund consists solely of amounts donated by members of the Family and are available for Reunion expenses as needed. For the past two years, we have funded our Reunion meal solely from these donations, and have been able to avoid requesting funds from the Trust Account established at the People's Bank of Flemingsburg by champe Clarke
The General Fund showed a balance as of June 30, 2004 of $1,587.22. The meal charges for the 2004 Reunion were $1,163.60. We were given credit for a $500.00 deposit that Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park was holding from prior year, leaving us a balance due of $663.30. Sharron Mathews paid that amount in full on Sunday, august 8, 2004. Balance remaining in the General Fund before adding back amounts collected at the 2004 Reunion, is $923.62.
Total amount collected for the General Fund at the 2004 Reunion was $1,794.00. This brings the new balance in the General Fund to $2,717.62 as of August 8, 2004.
The Scholarship Fund is maintained at Wilson & Muir Bank & Trust Co. in Bardstown, KY. This fund consists of Family donations set aside to assist with educational expenses incurred by high school graduates as they go on to an accredited college or trade school.

In 2004, we had no applicants for the Scholarship award.
