BSM Building Repairs
Projects in Progress
(1) Paint interior: almost finished thanks to FBC Daingerfield men and Ellie Mouser of New Mine Baptist Church; additional help still appreciated
(2) New flooring: purchased, to be installed August 11
(3) Paint exterior (with some siding repair): men from Bar Nun committed to do the work
(4) Haul off junk and trash: about a pickup bed's worth still left
(5) Wash dishes, pots and pans: Marguerite Morris of FBC Daingerfield has just about finished this task
(6) Dirt work to improve drainage: men from Lake Fork did this work
(7) New countertops to be installed by Carl Reuther of FBC Gilmer; Frank Caldwell of Chuckwagon Cowboy Ministries made and installed the door on the storage under the counters
(8) New furnishings will be purchased if enough additional money is received
There is still plenty to do for volunteers, especially in the area of general cleaning. Please continue to give both your time and your money so that we can reach the generation following us.

An article from Church Finance Today issued a warning to payroll and human resources professionals to beware of a new phishing email scam requesting personal information on staff. The cybercriminals have tricked people into sharing employees' Social Security numbers.

The IRS announced December 17 that the standard business mileage rate will fall in 2016 to 54 cents per mile (down from 57.5 cents per mile in 2015), while mileage for medical or moving purposes will decrease to 19 cents per mile (down from 23 cents per mile in 2015). Lower fuel prices are a contributor to these declines in the mileage rates. The standard charitable mileage rate remains set at the statutory rate of 14 cents per mile.
