Band Booster Meeting

July 6, 2017

CALL TO ORDER: 6:34p.m.

READING OF MINUTES:  Lisa Drinkwater was added to last month’s minutes

DIRECTOR’S REPORT: Theme is New World Century

TREASURER’S REPORT: $10,000 is checking & $50,000 in savings.  More Fred Meyer gift cards were sold at last concert.  Some Styrofoam was sold but may want to keep some for new theme this year.


UNIFORMS:  Would like to have fittings prior to band camp, starting with upper classmen.  Some kids will be playing at a wedding Aug 12.   Dates will be sent out later for fittings.

VOLUNTEER:  Jennifer Petersen wrote up job descriptions for a lot of the volunteer positions.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS:  Clothing was gathered from the schools from the lost and found.  A few schools had some more.  Anything that was boxed was transferred to bags.  Trailer will be hauling to Value Village and the band receives 20 cents per pound of clothing.  This will be a year round gathering of clothing to bring in money for the band.

NEW BUSINESS:  Tour de Whatcom and Old Settler’s Parade are on the same day-July 29.  Need volunteers for all three locations:  Alger, Lynden, and Ferndale.  We receive money for doing this and get to collect the tips received from these three locations.  Each shift, at each location, will need to have at least one person with a food handler’s permit.  See sign up for this.

Band council is requesting money for activities.  It was thought that they should have a spending of $100 each year.  They really don’t use the full amount.

ENDING:  6:57p.m.

Next booster meeting to be held at Jennifer Petersen’s house, 6211 Parkland Way, Ferndale, at 6:30p.m.  All are welcomed!
