March Meeting Minutes

March 18, 2010

6:30 call to order – Sunset Library

In attendance:  Linnette Jackson, Jenny Kling, Caroline Popma, Robyn Deep, Connie Hopkins, Kari Perry, Lynn Jacobs, Jenny Palmer, Laurie Hurley, Brenna Burke, KJ Wesenburg, and Kathy Ludwig.

The February minutes were reviewed and approved as well as the February financial report (as presented by Linnette).  The report reflected income of $940 and expenses of $2600 due to mostly to the family breakfast and the auction.  The proposed 2010-2011 budget was also reviewed.  It should look very familiar, although, there is an increase of about $10,000 over this year as we expect to have proceeds from the auction.

The auction work continues to be gong well with invites going out soon and the next planning meeting at Heathry Nance’s house on Monday, April 12th at 6 pm.

Committee chairs and officers for 2010-11 were mentioned.  Most of the chair positions will be retained although KJ Wesenburg will do Dine Out’s, an apprentice is needed for Family Fun Nights (to work with Kimberly Steele), and we need a “Barn Blast” coordinator.  There is at least one open position on the board at this time!

Linnette Jackson made a request for Paula Meyer for yearbook photos of the Barn Blast, field trips, Pizza Bingo, etc. to be put on CD or emailed to

Kathy Ludwig initiated a discussion for the group regarding finding time for the teachers in all of the elementary school to stream and plan.  Those present at the meeting offered possible support and objections to the principals’ ideas.

Meeting was adjourned later than usual.
