Uniforms: Uniform fitting is scheduled for Wednesday 9:25-noon 1:04 at the high school and Thursday same time at middle school. Potentially hire a seamstress for next year.

Deliver at the middle school, must be organized, then handed out to students after school (1:00-5:30 on December 16th). Decals are here, $5 each.  We need to add decal information to Twitter or Facebook.

Director’s Report: Mrs. Rosselit was not able to be at the meeting tonight due to All Star Band practice. Thank you to Mrs. Vandenburg for attending the meeting. Please see attached director’s report. Motion made to pay for the entry fees for the students participating in All Star band, first by Rhonda and second by Wendy.  All in favor.

Unfinished Business: Band Boosters has received an invoice from the HS Food Service for $93.25 for the day of East Kentwood because of spoiled milk due to electrical problem from a breaker being blown and not reported. $252.57 to Orefice for gloves. Tammie received a  phone call from Mr. Eichberg stating that we are no longer responsible for making payments on the football concession stand and he will refund this year’s payment.

New business: Tammie proposed that we form a communications committee for sending out information in the effort that the parents and student’s are more informed of the band’s activities at all grade levels. Wendy asked about what other fundraising opportunities that are available. We discussed the ticket booth at BCYF, the Korn Dog Booth, Spaghetti dinner and contribution letter.  Missy, Dawn, Ai Mee, Rhonda, Eric and Darrin have all volunteered to be on the committee.
