Auction re-cap and THANKS!!!!!: Thanks to everyone who helped out.
Final tally: including donations, final income from Auction is $6495.00
To do for next year: We discussed how to secure items from walking away with the
incorrect bidder; the BUY IT NOW options needs to be streamlined. With a few more
volunteers actually monitoring the process and items, hopefully a better checkout system
will be in place next year. Unfortunately, a few items were mixed up. We will change
Action Donation form to include a line for Thelma While Scholarship bake raffle. We
need to start some online and far away requests earlier.
Playground fund fundraiser:
Tree print sales and order update: we had made two prints– one was sold at the auction,
and the other given to Senturia’s in thanks for all their support. 11 out of 18 of the final
numbered prints have been reserved. All funds from this will go to Playground Fund.
Flower Power fundraiser update: Forms due on April 24th. Jen B will collect checks
and forms after the break, and Cornelia will tally and send in by May 1st deadline. PTF
gets 50% of sales, not including shipping.
T-shirt update- design by the kids in guidance class: no new news. Cornelia will ask
Judy and Rose about this. Erik is ready to print them, once he gets a design.
