February's financials show that there was a net income for February of $3,254.  The details are in the Profit and Loss Statement.  This is down considerably from last month for several reasons, many of which are normal fluctuations. 

Of note in the Administrative portion of the P&L, which we call the WSO Cost Center, are that 7th Tradition contributions were lower by about $3,000 from last month, and we showed no income from Amazon ebook sales, which should show up in March.
