Many of you may not know that MCCW – USA was born in the South. Fort McPherson to be exact. They were MCCW SE USA, with Claire McNiff as their President. A meeting was called to plan “The Fall Assembly.”
At the time, their Financial Statement January 12, 1975 thru April 6, 1975 reads as follows:
Total net worth – January 12, 1975 $ 338. 92
Income – Dues from 9 Chapels $ 225.00
Check FROM the speaker 25.00
Offering Pope AFB 40.00
Total $ 290.00
Expenses – Dues to NCCW $ 150.00
Escrow (Pope AFB 10.00
Total $ 180.35
They had received dues from nine (9) Chapel Groups which totaled $225.00, a check for $25.00 dollar and a $40.00 offering from Pope Air Force Base.
Checking Account – April 6, 1975 $394.74
Escrow Account 63.83
As I share this, I wonder if all our members are aware that – previously – in order for your Chapel Group to belong to MCCW, they (the Chapel) had to pay a yearly fee. In the recent past it was a yearly fee of $50.00. It only pertained to Stateside Chapels. How things have changed!
