Recap of April 2016 Meeting

by Shelly Mathis

Meeting Date: April 15, 2016

Old Business

  • Fruit Sales - The club decided to wait until the May meeting to discuss about giving the club members’ families a discount for boxes of fruit they purchase.

New Business

  • Middle Park Fair Ad
    • The club approved purchasing a $45 ⅛-page ad to thank the office staff and support the fair.  This year’s book will be in black and white, so Shelly redesigned the ad accordingly:
    • Additionally, the club voted to be a Friend sponsor of the Middle Park Fair by donated $100.  At this level, the club’s banner will be displayed all week long.  

  • May’s Spring Tray Favors
    • The club tabled discussing May’s spring-themed tray favors, since Tish and Marcy were both gone.  (Ladies, please discuss the plan with one another, and let me know if May is okay with you.)

  • Field Trip to the Orchard
    • The club talked about tentatively planning a field trip to Phil’s orchard on Wednesday, June 1st.
    • Tish, will you please check with him to see if that is a good plan?
