DH Account Activity

Please note that the Druid Hills Checking Account has been closed, due to isolated fraudulent activity. A new account opened and we are in the process of receiving checks for it. As a result, Ms. Austin is limited in her ability to issue checks this week. This did not impact the balances of any existing DH account and we have accounted for checks issued but not cleared earlier. Please contact me if there is an emergency situation.
