III.     Recap Review of October Board Meeting/Election Vote

Committee members shared impressions and suggestions for improvement.


IV.   Recap Review of Pancake Breakfast

              Overall, the breakfast attendance was about 20% lower than last year but financially not much different.  A few changes included in-house food, and since it was the second year, less work up front.  Not all board members understood the expectation related to selling tickets.  There was some initial confusion over the roll of Job Corps students; Marcy will speak with Kate about it.  Marcy has offered to organize next year’s event.  She would like a template to plan the event – a checklist of sorts.  Earlier sales of tickets is recommended.  Also the Committee discussed need for a contract or written agreement with Job Corps.  Committee members suggested more targeted promotion in the immediate geographic area.  Thank you’s will be sent out by staff.

VI.   COPP Grant

VII.  Honor Roll
