Recap of February's Meeting

by Shelly Mathis

Friday, February 22, 2013

Tray Favor Volunteers
March - Linke/Krempin
April - Monnahan/Wheatley
May - Mathis

Fair Book Ad
Molly showed us her new design, and we approved it - with the suggestion that she add a border of some kind.  She will email Mrs. Mathis the final copy.  Mrs. Mathis will give her the email address she is to send it to.

Liberty will write the check and complete the order form for the fair book ad and mail them both in.

Kum & Go Booklets
The club voted to buy 40 booklets, but agreed to let the Extension Office know that we will purchase more if council needs us to buy more in order to meet the minimum requirement.

Liberty Mathis will write the check and submit the order to the Extension Office next week.

Once we have the books, the club will discuss selling them.  We may decide to see if Kum & Go will let us stand outside on a Friday afternoon (when it's warm) to sell them.  Families can also take some to tell personally.  Marcy will take some to sell at the horse events they attend on the Front Range.

Projects Taken
Julie - sewing
Bailey - horse
Audrey - horseless horse
Liberty - cakes
Ben - quick breads
Molly - sewing
Shyla - ? everything?!?
Foster - ? 

Molly still has not received her record books.  Mrs. Mathis emailed Caroline Smith to inquire about it.  Caroline responded that she was waiting until after March 1st to place record book orders.  She may have one in the office and will check.  Hopefully the book will be coming soon!  :)

Agreed that everyone would work to be ready to give their required demonstration at the June meeting.  Anyone who cannot make the June meeting can do theirs at the July meeting.

Field Trip Ideas
Focus on the Family in CO Springs
Dairy (maybe Kristi Moyer's family?)
A place in Denver where you can pick your own fruit (need to research for fall)
Argo Mine tour in Idaho Springs
Other mine possibilities
Sew Expo this summer in Denver

The club agreed to donate some potholders to a silent auction/benefit dinner being held for Brooke Meade on March 8th.  Mrs. Mathis forwarded the contact information to Marcy.

March Meeting
Friday, March 29th @ 12:30 p.m. in KCC basement.  

JoAnna will make sure we can meet there on that day.  She will give the key to Mrs. Mathis or have the church unlocked.  

Just FYI - the Mathis family will need to leave around 1:30 p.m. to attend swimming lesson in Summit.

District Retreat is March 1st-3rd.  Bring a snack, swimming suit, ice skates (if you have them), and cash.  Dress code is business casual.  Arrive at the Extension Hall a few minutes before 3 p.m. on Friday, March 1st.  The rides will be leaving at 3 p.m.!
