Tammy & Elaine:

  • Will send out All My Sons family and Friends ads to purchase ad in playbill will continue for other shows

  • Vote on $5000 Donation towards Cost of NYC Trip. Boosters decided to hold off on voting on this until we know the trip is approved and then find out how many kids are committed, then compare last year’s donation amount to make the $ consistent per student as last year, not necessarily just the same dollar amount of $5000. We also discussed matching the same amount that the Dram Dept donates as last year.
