Our membership count is now at 84 – about 10% below our count at the same time last year.
Our recent purchase of the Mallincam brought expenses for the year-to-date up the level of revenue, so we’re now at break-even. Put another way: we’ve taken a big step toward improving capabilities at the Simpson Observatory without even dipping into our surplus.
On a cumulative basis at this date, the AAAP’s surplus is about $25 thousand.
