Bring a dessert and socialize. Parents are welcome to come and watch the practices during band camp.

Fundraisers: Tracy has a friend that can come and offer advice on selling – key words and phrases to use when trying to get a sponsor.  Banners – decided on $300 level instead of $350 for sponsor banners to match the football team’s banners  Tipsy Taco – Shawn knows the owner and will check on a profit night  Car wash/yard sale – Tentatively set for September 9 th in the school parking lot  Yogurt Mountain Profit Night – a band member has a friend that works there and they are offering a profit night @ 20%. Carleen will contact Cassy Robinson @ 864-557- 8702 to schedule  Wendy’s - Carleen has contacted them and they are willing to have us continue with Profit Nights. We decided on August 15 th from 5:30-8:30 due to band camp. September, October, November and December will be the 2 nd Tuesday of the Month.  Fruit – ShaeAnn’s husband has a friend who owns Marvin’s Produce. He can check on cost of citrus cases, apples and pears to see if they would be a good alternative to Indian River Groves. We discussed the pros and cons of using a local produce supplier versus Indian River. Indian River takes care of all the paperwork, order fulfillment and shipping. We would have to do all of this administrative work ourselves if we went with a local company. We will review the fruit fundraiser information from last year and make a decision at a later meeting date.
