There will be no "extra" park activities this year. We have reserved the bandstand "pie" where we will collect dues, sell tshirts and have our business meeting: including awarding parade winners.

There will also be no banquet or dance this year. We are concentrating all our energy on the parade. The following parade jobs have been taken:

Parade registrations- Linda

Mailing rules, etc to class contacts- Denise

Fundraising- David (Sue M. will send him the letter to be used)

Judges- Debby

Security- Censor Security (already hired)

Contacting Color Guard, LHS Band, etc-

Line-up-

Parade prizes- It was voted unanimously to increase the prizes to $150, $125 & $100. It was discussed as to whether to give more awards, but decided not to at this time. Ribbons are to be given along with the trophies and checks during the presentation at the business meeting. This year's winners did not receive their ribbons. Deedee will find the box and we will make sure those are delivered to the class contacts.

Window Display- Sue M will contact Charter Trust to see if we could display some memorabilia in their window, as well as at the Eyeglass Outlet.

Holiday Giveaways- It was unanimously voted to do these again this year. Also looking at the Littleton scratch ticket raffle to be done in the spring. To be discussed at a future meeting.

Scholarship Changes- Giving all $4000 at one time was discussed but it was decided not to make any changes at this time. Dianne asked us to look at the description of our scholarship requirements given to students. It is not correct. Denise will rewrite and present at the next meeting.

Dianne asked us all to be aware of opportunities for us to get involved and have a better presence in the community. We are committed to working the Snack Shack again this year on Oct 7th. Be there at 5pm!!

We need your help! If you don't have the time to commit to monthly meetings, please consider helping us out on Alumni Day. We need lots of help with getting tents, tables, chairs, etc from our storage unit to the park on Saturday morning. We then have to turn around in the afternoon to pack everything back up and get it all back to the storage unit. We also need people to help sell our hats, t-shirts, etc, help collect dues and man the guest books along with getting the floats in line for the parade. If you can lend a hand for any part of the day, please contact a board member today. Thank You!
