BRICKS FUNDRAISER: No new update.
JV UNIFORMS: Heather referenced the email vote taken after the November booster meeting which authorized funds for JV boys’ basketball uniforms. Boosters approved to pay half of $1,450 toward uniforms and the district would pay for the other half of the uniforms. The district is also paying the costs associated with freshman games.
WINTER SPORTS PROGRAMS: Boosters discussed the programs and the involved process with selling ads, design layout and the billing for the ads. Discussion also held about black and white programs vs color programs. Heather reviewed the notes on the rotation. (Each year a high school athletic team helps with ad sales.) This year we will start the process in May. Boosters need a liaison to work with the baseball team. Track and cross country were added to the rotation.
COACHES APPRECIAITON DINNER: Dates were discussed for the coaches’ appreciation dinner. March 25 and April 1 were the dates with the fewest conflicts. Discussion held regarding the dinner and what to do to show appreciation. Stacy moved to authorize five $100 certificates/scholarships to be given away at the coaches’ appreciation dinner. Brenda seconded the motion. All in favor. (All coaches attending the banquet will be entered. Scholarships will be drawn the evening of the banquet.)
WINTER SPORTS BANQUET: The banquet will be held March 14. Volunteers needed. Tasks will be assigned at the February meeting.
BASEBALL CONCESSIONS: Boosters continue to look for a group to take responsibility for baseball concessions. Heather will have Linda notify groups at the high school to find if any group is interested. (With baseball concessions off-site there are challenges.)
REQUEST FOR FEEL THE LOVE: Boosters agreed to make a donation consistent with past years.
PACK THE PLACE: Pack the Place for middle school volleyball will be Monday, February 6. Heather will check with Mr. Ehmen. Cecilia will pass out raffle tickets. Pack the place for high school boys’ basketball will be February 10 vs Dwight. Stacy will hand out raffle tickets for Raider wear.
