I will double check, but I believe that was the Board's intention last year.
When the Post Office started charging the handling fees in July, I think the plans for the increase had to be put on hold.
on knit a square .com, gogos support it says 2 usd
I think Rhonda hoped for a raise to 1.50 but the funds really aren't there. I can see with the postal fees the appeal of the large distribution if it cuts fuel costs for a few months.
Our intention was to give the a raise to $2. In 2018 they were paid R10 per blanket. Starting in January of this year they are paid R15. Not much of an increase but what we can manage at the moment.
With the fluctuation of the exchange rate that comes out to about 1.25 USD at the moment.
Yikes, on February 12 the barn had no power for part of the day. Liz and Ann were happy sitting next to the entrance for light.
And Ronda was able to fill her arms with lots of blankets.
Athele enjoyed her cup of Jo.
And the others enjoyed theirs, too!
Thank you so much for the great pictures! It takes more than a power outage to stop a team of KASers, eh :)))
