The annual penny weigh-in took place on April 19. The total brought in was roughly 161.5 lbs. Our biggest donor was Anonymous with 79 pounds, and the top three individuals were as follows:
- Carmen Ybarra, 15 lbs.
- Mila, 13.75 lbs.
- Kema & Ed Bohn, 10.75 lbs.
We collected $326.40 gross from the penny weigh in, and will be depositing $293.50, the difference being the 11.9% Coinstar fee.
Thank you to everyone who participated or brought a dish for the potluck. Photo gallery here.
Update: we have received an additional donation of 20 pounds of pennies via Chris Alley and $68.10, bringing the total to $361.60. Figures will be in a May bulletin.
