OCTOBER 1, 2002 BAND BOOSTERS BOARD MEETING Present: Cathy Miller, Denice Markley, Kathy Phelan, Susan Derhaag, Karen Colgan, Nancy Poleshaj, Sue Wolfe, Carla Taylor, Sandy Coffman, Steve Lipes, Mike Meyer, Larry Fitkin, Carl Collins, Drew Anderson, Sue Swanson. The meeting was called to order by president Cathy Miller. Secretary’s minutes accepted as corrected. Treasurer’s report accepted. The Boosters books were audited during the summer by CPA and band parent Marcia Johnson. The $50 “inactive” fee charged on Boosters accounts by Wells Fargo Bank was returned to the accounts, but will be charged again unless money is “moved around.” This could involve buying 6- month cds. Boosters agreed to move $30,000 from the uniform account into a 6-month cd, avoiding the charge and giving the Boosters time to research other banks and accounts. COMMITTEE REPORTS: Newsletter: copies of the fall issue are available and will be mailed this week. Chaperones: Steve Lipes thanked those who accompanied the band to the pep rally at the junior high during homecoming week. Parents have signed up to chaperone the band on trips to the contest in Iowa City on Oct. 5 and to the State Marching Band Festival in Muscatine on Oct. 19. Uniforms: Sue Taylor is making capes for the drum majors for their “Phantom of the Opera” look. Color Guard: the girls are wearing new black tops over their white dresses. They sewed the tops themselves. Patron Program: $2635 received, some designated to various funds. Thank you notes are in the mail. A request for more patrons is in the newsletter. Ways & Means: the magazine sale was done in one day. There were 117 family orders, an unusually high number. Krispy Kreme doughnut discount cards were suggested, but D. Anderson will have to check with the Activity Director, as the school does not like to have two groups sell the same thing. Concessions: no report, as all volunteer slots are filled. Fruit & cheese: Larry Fitkin & Mike Meyer are splitting the responsib ilities this year, in preparation for Larry’s “retirement” from the job on his son’s graduation. There will be a price increase on nuts. Caramel corn is an additional product. Since there is no trip this year, commission is 10%. Junior High: 8th grade band teacher Kris Joy has another baby boy. The addition to the music room is progressing. OLD BUSINESS: none NEW BUSINESS: C. Miller will buy a card and $50 Target gift certificate for Kris Joy as a baby gift. BAND DIRECTORS’ REPORTS: D. Anderson: Oct. 5 will be the band’s first competition of the year.
