(Cortney Anderson)   already brought in $2,000 from membership, spirit wear, and              Treasurer’s report
                     concessions.                                                             1st Frank Prado
                     November concession expenditure of $949 was mainly to fund cash          2nd Beth O’Malley
                     boxes for winter sports.                                                 Motion passes
                     We paid for a Sportswear order in November.
                     We paid $1,500 for advertising artwork for scoreboards. That amount
                     will be passed on to the vendors.
                     We have not received bills for wish list items. Some have not come in,
                     and Dennis will check on others.
                     Final payment on the scoreboard has not yet been made. Waiting for
                     response from Kim Anderson regarding status.

                     from the Village and will be forwarding same on to us.
                     We are earning 55% on our expenses for concession stands, which is
                     similar to last year.

                      questions.                                                                   9/7/12 – Home vs. Wilmington

                      Dennis is meeting with Mike Mayoris and Pete Trojan concerning the
                      regional and sectional banners.                                              Each section of bleachers in gym
                      It was brought to our attention that it is difficult to know which side of   will be marked with “Home” or
                      the bleachers to sit on for games.                                           “Visitor.”

                       eating contest again. Volunteers are needed to help in all areas.
Concession Stands      Attendance at boys’ games has been low, so that has affected sales in
(Beth O’Malley)        concession stand.
                       Trying to order the correct amount of pizzas for games so we don’t
                       have a lot left over.
