Concessions: Patty – need better $#’s for concessions. Brunch ran out of food. Better head count. 32 booster members on the list – 15 interested in concessions. 16 on the list to assist with Brunch. Maybe reach out to 16 on the list to find out what they would like to bring. Patty will reach out to Jenn to reach out.
Patty is going to replenish our food/drink supply.
Scholarship: Violeta has volunteered to chair scholarships. New deadline of March 1st – in line with all other school scholarships. Kim Munroe notified. Depending on number of applications received – determines if 1 or 2 will be awarded.
Membership: no committee chair. Need to start tickling brains to add parents to the board next year. Would be nice to have a full board next year. Demi – kids do not know enough about ‘board’. If kids knew more they could expand the knowledge to the parents. THS rep at every meeting so the office can go back and let theatre kids know what booster members do. One officer and one THS member to attend the meeting for observation. Thought….
Web Page: Brenda – Harvey files, waiting on logo
