We will be doing the penny deposit today, June 22, 2021.  This deposit will allow us to catch and correct any discrepancies that may arise.

Also, we have been informed that those of you using smaller banks or credit unions may have to wait a couple of days for the deposit to enter your account.

IMPORTANT!!!  If you have provided us with your banking information, please do not call the Hall.  We will know who has or has not been paid.  If needed, we will contact you.
