    Need to send broadcast message to ask for additional volunteers. Notify Debby Percy at

    Whiteboard needs to be returned to PFO to use for EMT testing dates.

    Cooler has a new handle, but needs a bigger space for a padlock to be secured. Bill W. will
    ask to see if Machine Shop can do this.
   Vinal Polo shirts – New supplier, Darter, was contacted and 4 shirts were ordered Monday.
    They verified the order, filled it, and UPS delivered that Friday.

   Illumination for Vinal Sign in front of building – Bell and Howell solar spot lights (2/$30)
    may not be sturdy enough. Bill will ask Mr. Zisk if he has any suggestions.
   Fundraisers

     Career Night – Some polo shirts and the rest of the cookie dough were sold, along with
      baked goods and drinks, for income of $102.
     Illiano’s fundraiser – An ad was placed in the Middletown Press and Mary “hawked” it
      up after the basketball game last night (1/13). The turn out was okay, but the owner
      said he expected us to do more. We netted $215 after we deducted the price of the ad

        Joyce thought that the Hartford Courant had free advertising for non-profit
        organizations in the Itowns section. She will e-mail the paper to see if all non-profits
        are eligible. This might help attendance at future events.
       Scrip-$230 profit with check given to Deb G. tonight.
       Mohegan Sun Casino trip is planned for Friday 4/3/09. The bus is $700 and has the
        same package as last year. Leave 5:30 pm – return 11:30 p.m. $25 per ticket. Need to
        advertise, put in the March newsletter, possibly a form on an e-mail.
       Car Show for SkillsUSA-we will check to see if we will sell popcorn again and
        possibly baked goods.
       Deb G. will call again for info on the Bits and Pieces catalog (puzzles, etc.
       Craft fair a possibility if there were enough volunteers.
       Suggestions for other fundraisers-Ice cream event, Pizza Palace (% sales), Cypress
        restaurant (% sales), Dance, Common Threads (clothing), fruit sale (grapefruit/oranges
        by the case), pet show.
       Durham Fair booth-selling food? We used to recruit students there by having info
        about the school and examples from each shop. Mary will check on charges,
        availability, and guidelines.
