Dallas Makerspace Update

In preparation for the launch of Dallas Makerspace as an autonomous group, a separate bank account has been created.

Steve Rainwater has transferred all DPRG accounting info from the group's incorporation in 2004 through Feb 2010 into Quickbooks on the DPRG accounting laptop computer.
