Lamar Choir Booster Club Meeting - May 4, 2017

In attendance: Megan Starkey, Melissa Light-Whipple, Nikki Griffin, Nancy Butlin, Jessica Son, Susan Thomason, Jessica Jennings, Maya Perez, Margaret Bridgeman, Amy Edwards, and Kim Placker

Introductions were made then Nikki shared budget information and showed how our fundraisers have done this year. We made $3918 on the Fancloth fundraiser, LaMancha-$170.46 and $401.80 from the Amy’s and Phil’s fundraiser.  Fundraising monies go to purchase items for the choir room, costumes and supplies for performances, trips, judges for contests, accompanists for shows, etc. Last year, a piano was purchased for the classroom and the year before, risers were purchased for the choir.

We discussed Seussical income.  The total was $1057.60.  Each group will receive $352.53. 

We discussed the spring show. Ms. Starkey provided flash drives with all documents needed for each committee assisting with the show.  Ms. Starkey has already gotten student volunteers from Purple Pups to work on the crew. We talked about the need to order pizza for the crew and cast on the evening of the show. Nikki will help with this.  May 19th is rehearsal at the PAC until 4:30 pm and parents need to pick students up from the PAC at that time. Tickets go on sale on May 11th at 8 am. 

Ms. Starkey shared information about the upcoming choir trip on May 13.  An itinerary will be sent home soon. 

Scottie Singers will be singing at the 8th grade graduation on May 30.  6th and 7th graders are free to leave after singing. 

Nancy Butlin shared 20 tickets and 2 food vouchers from the Alamo Drafthouse.  Ms. Starkey also shared a $25 gift card from PTerrys that can also be used for the silent auction. Ms. Starkey will also auction several outings with her. We should continue to ask businesses to donate until the end of next week and send to Nikki.  Nikki or Kim will create the bid sheets for each item. We will have students work the silent auction table before the show and during intermission. Ms. Starkey will announce the silent auction at the beginning of the show and Melissa will announce it before intermission. 

We talked about officers for next year.  Many people in attendance had already left and no one present felt they could serve as president next year.  Ms. Starkey suggested we wait until the first meeting in the fall to finalize officers, but Nikki agreed to stay on as treasurer and Jessica decided to serve as secretary next year.
