Parent Meeting Agenda/Minutes
Present: Niki Davis, Kate Taylor, Carrie Card, Teri Robinson, Mary Tallmon
As of today, the club has $456.90. $70.97 is available for individual families who helped with fundraising events: Card $15.35, Davis $2.42, MTaylor $17.20, Hulegaard $18.00, BTaylor $18.00 which leaves $385.93 for club
funds. Ive set aside $300 for national elementary tournament entry fees. This will leave us with $85.93 in club funds for equipment.
Bake Sale, when? Robin and Trudy suggested having a bake sale and
since they had to miss this meeting, were going to let them pick a date. But we did discuss having a bread sale for $5/loaf.
Apparently some groups have had a lot of luck with this. Also, we may
have a Christmas pre-ordered bread sale. Also, Saturdays at 9 am seem to be a
good time to hold the sale. So Trudy and Robin, the ball is in your court!
Quilt raffle, tickets sales are ongoing Kate is going to take
a photo of the quilt and prepare envelopes with tickets for each club member to sell.
A drawing date will be chosen.
Candy sales Kate will look into this. The group agreed that this was a good idea.
Other ideas Teri suggested selling appliqués and will look into this.
Carrie suggested selling flowers from the Quincy Greenhouse and I think she will look into this.
What do we want to do? Most everyone agreed that one tournament a month is enough for their children to attend.

will hold tournaments towards the end of the season next year. Dates will be
decided in October.
