Meeting – Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010

ATTENDING: Kristen Nevarez, Erika Dorrell, Shawna Gilbert, Kylea Copeland, Brad Amerin, Kathy McDonald, Valarie Case and Angelia Case.

Meeting Times: The group discussed and decided to make Tuesdays at 12:15 p.m. an alternate meeting time for this group to allow others the opportunity to be involved. The first meeting to be held at this time will be Tuesday, Oct. 5.

Fundraising: Much discussion was held on this topic and ideas are still welcome, as always.

The first idea to be discussed Angelia brought to the group. A “Santa’s Little Workshop” was proposed after prior brainstorming by Shelly Wingo and Angelia. This would involve a Saturday in December (probably Dec. 11) having children come to make Christmas crafts while parents are out shopping or doing things they need to do. It’s kind of like a parent’s day out. Arts and crafts would be needed for the kids to do. We would also need a room or area to do this work – possibly the art department where the Kids Art Camp was held this past May. The area could be decorated for Christmas and we’d have Christmas music playing creating a festive environment for the kids to work. Dalton said he had access to a Santa suit which could be very helpful. Planning will begin very soon on this.

Angelia also discussed cake raffles with the group. This will take dedication from the group but is really a good option. Dates were discussed to reserve for this activity.

Kylea brought up and option for Christmas gift wrapping. It could be a fun thing to do and a nice service to others. Walmart was discussed as a possible location for this. Shawna said they would check into the matching funds possibility with Walmart. Also discussion was had for the possibility of donating part of the funds raised to a charitable group such as a battered women’s shelter or we could even adopt a family, or take an angel from the Christmas tree to help out.

Former member Kelsey Bryant suggested a photography fundraiser for the group. This would entail photographing students, employees and their families for nice holiday photos, a photo card or package or a photo in general. Members were to discuss with their friends if they might be interested in something like this. This is a good option – Thanks Kelsey.

Missy Buller suggested the possibility of selling koozies to help out.

Fundraising dinners at Pizza Hut and Gambinos were also discussed. Shawna will find out more info from Pizza Hut and Kathy McDonald will do the same with Gambinos. These are very easy fundraisers – just need a little publicity done for them.
The regular (and annual) catalog sales idea was approved again. This time the group will go with different company just for a different variety of items. More information will be released soon.

Christmas Cards: The group is still very interested in continuing the Christmas Card making from last year. Card making should commence very soon.

Kylea and Brad will find out resident numbers at the Homestead, Share and Beadles.

Fun Things: Angelia handed out “Creativity Notebooks” to those present. These are to be used to jot down fun ideas to do, ideas for photos, drawings, paintings, etc. Have fun!

Angelia also presented a fun drawing activity to those who were here. Check out the drawings (modern of course) in Media Services!
