Present: Yvette Martinez, Wilma Rose, Janon Swink, Lloyd Worth, Erica Hageman, Melissa Rippy, Ann Taddeo, Aryn Lallas. Carol Hodges was also present.

  1. Fundraising ideas-
    1. Directors suggested several ideas, and the group narrowed down to four on which we will focus: Disc golf, Historic Ghost Tour, Poker Run, and Run/Walk. In addition, we did talk about planning a garden tour for 2016 and an Incredibly Amazing Race. Dates for the four major events will be determined in March.
    2. Sponsorships- We need to begin contacting potential event sponsors. This topic will be a major agenda item in March.
  2. Cookbooks- Carol passed around a draft, and she continues to proofread. The books will be printed in February.
  3. Carol and Karah were thanked for their service and dedication to the Foundation and were given gift cards.
  4. Grant funding
    1. Janon explained the process for dispersing the funds either via an electronic transfer or she could write a check.
