      a. Mr. Evans thanked the boosters for their support of the students from
         Deep Creek Middle School. Faculty and students from both schools felt it
         was a success. Mr. Evans is working on doing the same type of activity
         with students from other area middle schools as well.
      b. Mulch Sale- it was suggested that May 2nd is to late to do the sale. After

         will start advertising.

         missed the boosters and she would see us at the homecoming game.
      f. Beth- brought up the idea of doing a bulk mailing of all flyers; Mr. Evans
         suggested we use EDLINE. All flyers to be sent to Randy, he will forward
         them to Mr. Schlipp to be added to EDLINE. Mr. Evans also suggested the
         phone message system; it can be set up to reach athletes of a certain team
         if wanted or go out to the whole school.
