June Minutes Norwalk Athletic Booster Club On June 2, 2019, NABC President Kent Wulf called the May meeting to order at 7:02pm. Thirteen were in attendance including: Kent Wulf, Kara Greenlee, Sara Reece, Jen and Andy Kreider, Zach Lipovac, A1 Lammers, Aanna Hoch, Ashlee Knickerbocker, Nancy LaVelle, Mary Knickerbocker, Tammy Randall and Diane Ellis. PECC representatives Tammy Randall and Diane Ellis were present and provided the NABC board an update on their fundraising plan and progress. They highlighted their efforts to raise awareness of the project through upcoming community events like the 4th of July festivities, RAGBRAI and the Norwalk Music Fest. They've also contacted local celebrities to be "hometown heroes" where they record a message/ short video to share on social media and at events asking for donations/raising awareness. In July the PECC committee will be contacting businesses in Norwalk and the surrounding area regarding giving to the project. They've also begun identifying grant opportunities. In August their plan is to get in front of community and begin the push to raise private funds encouraging fun pledge parties, matching gift challenges and the like. In August they will also present more information to the community through school functions. The PECC team formally asked for financial assistance to cover the marketing expenses and promotional items. The PECC committee asked the boosters to donate $2500 toward those expenses. In addition, they've asked the NABC to donate to the project with a larger gift. Upon discussion the board agreed to the $2500 donation for marketing and promotional material and tabled an official decision on the large donation the board will make this fall toward the PECC. The NABC will make that announcement and presentation at the first home football game in September. Upon a motion duly made by Kara Greenlee, seconded by Andy Kreider the NABC unanimously approved a $2500 donation for marketing expenses for the PECC. Secretary's Report: Aanna Hoch reviewed the minutes from the May 2019 meeting. Upon a motion duly made by Jen Kreider, seconded by Nancy LaVelle and unanimously carried, the minutes from the May 2019 meeting were approved.

Upon a motion duly made by Andy Kreider, seconded by Kara Greenlee and unanimously carried, the financial reports for June 2019 were approved. Concession Report: Mary Knickerbocker provided a concession report noting that the popcorn machine used in the both the middle school concession stand and the ball field concession stand has sadly broken. Mary has agreed to research the best option, pricing and resource for popcorn poppers and will report back to the board next month. The board has encouraged her to look at purchasing two machines to reduce the need to move machines from one concession stand to the other, hopefully resulting in the longevity of each machine. Mary also made the suggestion to increase the concessions at Middle School events as they now have a nice, fully functioning concession stand. Middle School AD Zach Lipovac agreed that the idea is good but doesn't believe that they will be able to staff it with Middle School parents noting that he has a difficult time getting parents to volunteer for the simplest tasks. Coach's Wish List: HS Softball - $806.00 for softballs and other equipment. Upon a motion duly made by Sara Reece, seconded by Nancy LaVelle and unanimously carried, the HS Softball expense was approved. HS Girls Soccer - $171.00 for Coach Apparel.

Upon a motion duly made by Mary Knickerbocker, seconded by Sara Reece and unanimously carried, the HS XC team's expenses were approved. Membership Report: Jen Kreider was present to report that this month showed membership down $3,295 from the same time last year. 2018-19 membership thru end of June is $50,620.09.01 with just one new member in June. Technology: Andy Kreider presented the technology report noting that our League Lineup subscription has expired and he has moved the NABC over to using all Google forms for free. Andy has also worked on implementing Jotform for the annual Golf Tournament registration. If not fully functioning for the tournament this year, it will be in place next year.

He extended his thanks again to the boosters for supporting the MS athletes with new uniforms, gear, and equipment this year. A1 Lammers, High School AD, reported that baseball and softball seasons are 2/3 done. Softball ranked 11th and have received a first round bye in the district tournament. Norwalk will host regional games. Baseball sub-state brackets are out, pairings are not made or announced yet. The AD office hired a new office assistant. Public Relations: Nancy LaVelle reported that all of the recognition cards have been sent to the spring athletes. Over 50 cards sent in all marking a successful spring season! Special Events: Ashlee Knickerbocker provided a report regarding the upcoming NABC Golf Tournament noting that most items and plans are in place. After some discussion it was determined that the board would not seek raffle prizes this year but instead, have a 50/50 raffle for both the morning and afternoon sessions and possibly introduce the purchase of mulligans for the tournament. Ashlee asked the board to talk with their assigned businesses to get golf hole sponsorships. She highlighted that the food has been discussed with Fareway and Matt Elliot, the tee times are nearly full and Ashlee is working on securing all of the volunteers for the event.

Respectfully Submitted, Aanna Hoch, NABC Board Secretary
