Old Business

Fund Raising Survey Results: The three choices that received the
highest votes were E Scrip, Ink Cartridges and Amazon. We are already
doing these 3 things. The next highest choices were selling chocolates
for Valentine’s Day, Bakes sale, rummage sale, family night pot luck
and movie, paying membership dues.

There isn’t enough time to sell chocolates for Valentine’s Day but we
will look into doing this for Mother’s Day. Jill will follow up on this.

We will have our first Family Movie and Pizza Night March 6 at 6:00 pm.
We will charge $5 to $50, what ever you can pay. The proceeds from
the Family Night will go towards purchasing a stove.

Sat, Feb. 7 will be our first E Waste event. Leah needs two sets of 6
parents to handle this event.
