Band director’s report:  There is a “Pre-Trip” to San Antonio scheduled for July 21-23.  Richard Lacy and Richie Monteith will be the individuals traveling and will see what activates are available to our group while there.


Currently, Lacy reported, there are seven bands confirmed to attend the bowl game in December.  Band sizes are smaller than us to 260 students.  The goal is to have 12 bands totaling around 1500 kids.


World’s Finest Chocolates fundraiser has begun.

Quilt raffle will continue through May 1


We have high school music contest scheduled for April 21.  Lacy is asking for three sponsors.  Estimated departure time will be around 8:00 AM.  Lori Thomas volunteered to go as one of the sponsors.


Old Business: The school Musical was a success.  We do not have all the numbers in yet.  We will have updated figures in April.


New Business:            Fundraiser Ideas:  Some ideas we had brought to the table were a talent show, lip-sync battle and father/daughter-mother/son dance.  We have set these ideas aside for right now.


We will be hosting a street dance along with Henry’s Bar and Grill on Saturday, June 10.  John Koch, owner of Henry’s Bar and Grill, has reserved the band and will work with us to help staff workers.  We will need to provide set up, gate works, and sponsors to help with some security during the dance.  The booster will be responsible for finding sponsors to help pay for the cost of the band.  The band hired for the event is Saviors and Outlaws.  We will have more details in the months to come after we meet with John during our April meeting.


Additional fundraisers we will have in the fall will be cookie dough, hams, puffins, bowl t-shirts and possible the Rada cutlery.


Richie asked for a motion to adjourn the meeting.  Gretta motioned, Jeff second.
