Norwalk Music Booster Minutes www.norwalkmusicboosters.com Jennifer Patterson is the backup person for Fruit Sales and is looking for anyone else to help, as it looks like Tracy Saltz will no longer be in charge. Donna Sleeth reported that she is still looking for help in selling Younkers Community Days coupon books. At present, she has at least 1 person per con- cert but can always use more volunteers. Other fundraising op- portunities were brought to our attention through Casey's punch tickets or pizza coupons are avail- able at no cost with 50% profit staying with the schools. It was agreed that we need to organize a committee to check into this, as we already have 2 yearly fundraisers we ask the students to participate in Entertainment Books and Fruit Sales. Anything else is Music Booster funds but right now would be voluntary on the students' or parents" part. Volunteering: -Lori Nielsen is still in need of concession stand workers for the 8th Grade Choral Festival on Oct. 19 (correction from last month's minutes). She also needs 32 dozen bars or cookies, individually wrapped, delivered by 3:00 that afternoon, and will need help getting piz- zas. Volunteers are still needed for help with sup- per that night. Per an email, Gerard Krupke is in need of 3 vol- unteers to help coordinate the dinners for the All Conference Choral Festi- val we are hosting on Nov. 17. Two people would or- ganize the student dinner and the other, the direc- tors/accompanists dinner. He has menu information from the last time Norwalk hosted that would help in this endeavor. The student dinner volunteers would be coordinating the meal for up to 250 students us- ing Eastview cafeteria. Once meal options and costs are determined, he believes that the money made on this dinner will be all profit. Miscellaneous: Julie Heckart let us know that the website is now updated. She does need the Notable Donor information for this school year to include it and will be putting Wells Fargo in- formation on the website also. John Harrison re- quested help in advertis- ing any way we can as par- ents for the musical be- cause of the large cost this year v. money left in the budget. He will get infor- mation to the music direc- tors about possible dona- tions through Casey's and requested that the connec- tion be made at the football game on Oct. 16 since the 8th grade band is playing music from "Grease".
