President’s Message – January 2018

Sherri Voigt, CGFM, CPA

Welcome to 2018!

Our January 25 lunch meeting is the Annual Tax Update. Sarah Loose from Baker Tilly Virchow Krause will be covering any changes for the 2017 tax year, and covering some highlights of the recent tax acts that will impact the 2018 tax filing season.

We will collect items for the Salvation Army at the January lunch meeting.  Commonly needed items are:

  • Adult T-shirts
  • Diapers – All Sizes (5 & 5 needed most)
  • Baby Bottles
  • Sanitary Items
  • Men’s deodorant

Diapers are a wonderful item to donate to families in need.

Donations from prior luncheons
