PUBLICATION REPORT

No report of this committee was given at the annual meeting so one is given now A total of 2475 bulletins were run off in 11 editions. Over 200 copies of each edition were mailed out. 100 copies of the membership renewal forms were printed. 100 ballots were also printed as well as 250 summer camb brochures, 400 annual meeting notices, about 100 camp songs and 250 membership lists.

This at a cost to the club of $ 118.34, of which $ 66 was for postage to mail out the bulletins. This leaves a net cost for publications only, of $52.34. The last year we had the publication of the bulletin contracted out the cost was $288.

The various items necessary for putting out our printing includes paper, printing ink, addressing ink, mimeograph stencil sheets, address plates and staples. We are now making our own address plates saving a few dollars by doing so. We are also printing our own mastheads, while they may not be as attractive as having them done commercially, it does save us considerable money.

Want to call attention again to everyone that it would be a big help if people would turn in items to the publications committee that will be of interest to the membership. Its a big job to gather up and put out all of our printing and this would be a big help.
