Ok, I got a call this morning from the American Cancer Society and they informed me that our chairperson did stop by yesterday and turned in some donation money. They are going to balance it this morning and let me know if the full amount was turned in or not. She is concerned about the checks being almost a year old and is not sure if they will be honored. She said she would check with their bank this morning and see what the rules are for that. I've heard back from most of the people that sent me donations and they said the checks are still good on their end, so if the bank honors them, they'll be clearing soon.
So I guess the meeting with the President last week finally got the point across that this had to be taken care of NOW.
