Recap of July 2016 Meeting

by Shelly Mathis

Meeting Date: July 8, 2016

Old Business

  • Fruit Fundraiser
    • $6100 in fruit sales was deposited this week.  There’s still more to do.
    • The peach delivery date is tentatively set for Friday, August 19th. Mark your calendars to be available!
    • Tish will ask Phil about when the final count of peach boxes is due; this date will determine when the final sales are due to Shelly.  Thus far, it seems that Krempins and Mathis’ are the only ones who yet have payments to collect.  
      • Tish will also ask Phil if any boxes of “seconds” are available for purchase.
    • The club voted to order an extra 15 boxes of peaches to sell at time of delivery.
