The WSHS met on Oct. 26 at the First Christian Church with Marge Straube, Andrew Dunahoo, Eric Lucas, Hal Pearson, Gene Morey, Bonnie Steinbrecher, Kristie Melendez, Sue Buxmann and Sandy Brug.
Sandy finished the parking lot letters to send to Pikes and Viking Underground and the “to whom it may concern” letters to place on the vehicles. Sandy is in touch with the towing company and the Town of Windsor is going to make our signs to put up. The town staff will help us identify the vehicles that should not be there.
Kristie will order our envelopes to send out Thank You notes and letters.
Marge will call Kelly Arnold to meet with him about approaching the Board about getting some money for our statue.
Kristie will get in touch with Tom Prenger to set a date in Jan or Feb of 2016 for our “Gala” and set up a meeting with him to go over details. Many suggestions have been made about door prizes, individual gifts and also something to sell. Andrew said the Town could help us with a slide show of historical pictures etc. Kristie suggested we send out “save the date” post cards before the invitations.
Kristie suggested we set up a “KicK Start” or “Go Fund Me” on Face book. Eric will let us know which one is better.
Sandy will call Arcadia for cost of books.
We may go for the grants if we need them. Kind of wait and see approach.
Sandy sent a letter to Shraeder’s Oil and left a message. Kristie suggested she keep calling.
We probably don’t qualify for Sam’s Club money but Sandy is going to check it out on the internet.
We will take part in Windsor Wonderland by putting a display in the Depot to start our “Name the Statue “campaign. We will ask them to go to our face book page and give us the name. If they give out goodie bags to people we will put our rack cards in.
We received $67.20 royalties on our book.
