Fundraising: Jennifer Vogelzang will head up Butterbraids, March 5-16 and should be back before Easter(April 1). She is also looking into dates for the next Trinkets and Treasures. Penny Walker looked into idea of taking over Muds to Suds. Whatcom event would hand everything over to us. We thought that would take too many volunteers to depend on for us to handle and too big of a project for us to take on to have it work correctly. Penny Walker is looking into a 5k Fund Run that may be able to be held at Hovander Park. She was looking at April 28th for a date to have it. She still has to meet with parks department to check on schedules.
Rachel Ives set up and Applebee’s fundraising event for January 26th, 2018. 15% of all proceeds go to the band. It is an all day event, dine or to go!
