End of the Year Giving and the End of the Year Budget—Unfortunately we ended in the red this year.  We came in with a deficit of close to $100,000.00.  This deficit includes our line of credit owed to the Garrison State Bank for $55,000.00.  Please consider donating today to help us catch up and be healthier in 2017.

CCM’s Board of Directors met on Saturday to prepare for the Annual Meeting.  One area of serious discussion was the proposed budget for 2017.  More information to come as it is developed and presented for action at the annual meeting.
