Matt seconded. Motion passed.
PTT CONCESSIONS/Popcorn & Oil Use: Anne talked with PTT and told them they could use the popcorn and oil for a $15 approx. donation. They agreed to do so.

MS SHELVING UNIT: Ginger moved shelving unit from her room into concession. Anne replaced it with available vouchers that she had that were already approved and left over from the outdoor concession project. There was additional discussion on what else needs to be done.

CLOSE OUTSIDE CONCESSION STAND: Mark your calendars for 10/26 at 1pm to close the outdoor concession stand.
