Pink Night in January: date set for January 9. We were approached with a request for help with cheerleading uniforms. There are 29 girls on 2 squads. Uniforms cost about $113 a piece. We talked about offering an EWA Night Out to the cheerleading squads to help defray uniform costs. Even though we did just purchase new mats for the cheerleaders, we would like to help them with their uniform costs. Long Term Goal: It was asked if we would be open to establishing the purchase of a bus as a long-term goal. We will revisit this again. Amy has connections if/when the time comes for a bus purchase. Tax I.D. The process for establishing our own tax i.d. has been started. Respectfully submitted, Diane Lind, Secretary EWA Booster Club
October 9, 2014 EWA Booster minutes In attendance: Ali Sprouse, Stephanie Stafford, Amy Turner, and Joy Fournier. No Treasure report but will update. No money has been spent so our financial record should be the same as last meeting. Agenda for tonight's meeting contained information about our up coming color run. Steve is mapping out the course. Wendell park has mowed new paths and the trail was marked with paint but some areas were faded or mowed over. Volunteers will meet at at 6:30 am for set up. We were wondering if Wendy could handle another blast with flyers distributed throughout the grade levels for take home and ask our parents for water donations. We were also hoping that Wendy could set up another ROBO blast. Joy will check with Mr. Gay about advertisement during carpool at the marquee with HS honor students and the eagle supervised by Amy Turner. The group also discussed t-shirt ordering, medals and trophies. T-shirt quantity will determine by price but our range will be 50. We also discussed advertising on FB and Craigslist. If people emailed us we would honor our early bird price. The group also agreed to pay 250.00 for the iPad mini. We are hoping to gain an increase in concession and gate profits. Money spent on this item funds a collage scholarship program. If the item does not fit our needs we could donated to a after school coach. Cheerleaders requested new cheer mates, 3 @700.00 each. We agreed to buy 1 for this year, possibly 2 and would complete their order by next year. We also agreed that a pizza warmer would complete our needs this year for concession purchases and since BB is our biggest money maker it makes since to get the tools we need
