Approve May - June 2006 Financial Reports: Tracy Al-Khalayleh reviewed the Foundation Board Financial Reports for the period ending June 2006. There was no significant activity to report. Colleen Bauer made a motion and Lauraine Cook seconded the motion to approve the financial report ending June, 2006. Motion approved. 8. Update on Policy Issues: This will be a standing agenda item. Trustline: Still waiting on word regarding Laird bill. If lgislation is not passed the Governor’s office will most likely implenet new regulations. The state budget was signed and child care funding is essentially stagnant. We continue to see declining caseloads in the CalWORKs program, however new Regional Market Rates will help expend our child care dollars. 9. CCCC Highlight – 2006 KC Network for Children Report Card: Steve Sanders introduced Tom Corson and Cheryl Holsonbake with the KC Network for Children. The KCNC publishes an annual report card of child statistics with baseline indicators for various issues. Tom and Cheryl did a great presentation about the Report Card and how the KCNC uses data to help shape policy. 10. CCCC Program/Project Update: Brooke Antonioni Grants Castle & Cooke: 2007 Literacy Calendars: Our re-application for funds from Castle & Cooke to support the production of the 2007 version of the Literacy Calendar was approved. We hope to find a sponsor for the Spanish Version. The Kern Community Foundation & Junior League of Bakersfield: Both of our applications to the Kern Community Foundation and Junior League of Bakersfield for $1,100 to support of the purchase of books to distribute at storytime and play day events were approved. These books will be distributed to children during CCCC’s Story Time and Play Days in the Park events. Quality Child Care Training Project: The United Way site visit on May 24, 2006 went well and we are still awaiting word of continued funding. We feel confident that funding will continue. Get Ready, Get Set . . .Get Fit for Life: Kaiser Permanente: This project is in the final evaluation phase. Results will be posted on the web page www.everydaylearning.net. This has been a wonderful project and some very useful tools will be developed as a result. American Dental Association (ADA) – Harris Fund: CCCC and the Kern County Children’s Dental Health Network have teamed up to produce 2 PSA’s in English and Spanish focusing on the promotion of fluoride. Two half-day production shoots were held in April and May, 2006 with editing taking place during the month of June and the release of the PSA’s in August. CCCC Fundraisers Cartridges for Kids: This fundraiser is slow and steady and in a “holding pattern”. CCCC staff provides mailings to the business contacts that replenish the shipping supplies for partners every three months. This process is working very well. Target Golf Tournament: Lauraine Cook reported that the planning is going very well for the upcoming golf tournament. She encouraged Board members to help provide sponsorships and to volunteer the day of the event. This event will be held on August 21, 2006. ChildSpree 2006: Brooke reported that Mervyn’s and CCCC will again team up to do a ChildSpree in December. We will provide $2,500 in matching funds and will serve 50 children.
