Minutes - March 14, 2019 (Draft, subject to correction)
The minutes of our February 14, 2019 meeting were approved. Our secretary, as usual, did an excellent job on the minutes. (Comment by Cynthia.)
Publicity and PR
Gordon reported that we got almost all of our money back from the Lamoine Half-Marathon shirts. We will have the rest of the shirts to sell on March 30 at the Lamoine Flat Top Race. Gordon will have a table at this event with shirts and information about our September 28th race.
Gordon will write an artifact article for the April Lamoine Quarterly. We will also have an article about the Logo Contest. If possible, we’d like to have it on the front page.
Kick-Off Event (September 28, 2019)
A good solid meeting will be held in May with Gordon, Robin Emery, and others to firm up details about the road race and lunch. A possible race entry fee will be $15 (includes shirt and lunch).
There will be a “Little Kids Dash” across the playground starting at 10:15. This will be for children 4 and younger with ribbons for all participants.
The Fire Department and Lamoine Baptist Women Ministries will be in charge of the lunch. Tentative menu: burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, pasta salad(?), chips, drinks, and cookies. Possible prices: adults $5, kids $3, families $20. If the two groups do not recover their costs, then Lamoine 150 will cover the difference. Skip Smith and Carolyn Ackerman are the contact people.
Safety and security will be provided by the Fire Department. Timing will cost $100.
Gordon shared the progress updater and a tentative schedule for Lamoine Anniversary Evenings.
Everything is ready for our Logo Contest. Miranda will post a notice on Facebook with a link to a Google Doc with entry details. Articles will be submitted to the Lamoine Quarterly and the Ellsworth American. Information should also be sent out using town email, school newsletter, and radio. A flyer will be created by Miranda for Town Meeting. She’ll email it to Stu for printing and distribution.
Final Festival Weekend
We have three members for our Ad Hoc Festival Weekend Committee: Jo Cooper, Jen Reynolds Sargent, and Diane Sanderson. More members are needed, especially representation from the Fire Department and Lamoine Baptist Church. Thelma Beal will come to a meeting with this ad hoc committee.
We discussed plans for mailing postcards quarterly with upcoming events starting in July 2019. Logo entries could be used for these. It will cost $50 to print 500 postcards. We need to find out if the town has bulk mailing that we could use. If we send a general mailing to Lamoine Residents, it will be easier than using a mailing list. Cynthia is going to work on this idea for next time.
Cynthia is keeping track of possible costs.
There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 4:50 P.M.
Carol Duffy, Secretary
