We need to begin discussing and figuring out how to incorporate using the “Square” for accepting credit and debit cards for concessions and other fundraising next year or as soon as possible this year. Mrs. Painter has offered to help us set it up since she has experience with it in Boy Scouts
Spirit Wear – the supplier can make an online store which means we cannot upcharge anymore, but the benefit would be that they manage it.
We currently have $5,082.31 in our BB&T account.
First Citizens account has $0 and the account is still open for now. Kathryn will close it.
We have received some money for fruit sales
The taxes are done
We still need to pay for staff. Per AJ the amount is $2500 divided into 2 payments.
The best estimate for cost of props so far is $1,000.00 from Wilcoxes and we do not have a total from Shawn Sperry. Russ Smoak donated his cost.
Graphics for Trailer – the company is going to do the graphics for ½ price but it is still $408.50.
Robyn has the invoice. The company charged for their logo which we will not pay for.
She will look at reducing the price even further by taking away the extra letters and just keeping the WHHS Logo.
Best scenario would be to get price around $300-350 and split into 2 payments.
Other Items: 1. Props – 8 straps have been ordered to help with the back panels 2. Costumes – all have been fitted except for 2 guard and 2 marchers 3. Brian and Henry are searching for poles to help hold the top of the scaffolding steady 4. Senior Night and Sponsor Night – October 19th
