Meeting Minutes:  all approved meeting minutes from Dec/17/16.

Activities: ICE Skating  

Ice making was not successful. We could not put water down to make ice. The weather was warm and trying to get the water tanker did not make sense. The fire department was very helpful. We could not get the plan to work. We could not expect the fire department to stand there all day pumping water. Next year we need to get water to the location. We need to pre plan the water.

 Lock Box: We are allowed to have a lockbox for the school Gym key. Greg got it approved with the superintendent. We do not have approval for placement location but we have approval for placing a lock box. We will figure out location and Greg will get the superintendent to approve in the spring. Greg still needs to follow up with Sharon when she is back. We still need to know what kind of lock box and where to have it.

Cheering:  they ordered all the approved equipment. The team is trying to put together a fundraising with MDI as in a showcase. Holy needs a $200 loan to get things started and purchased things for the showcase like trophies. Pompoms. The showcase is Feb 24th at MDI 6pm-8pm. It is large group of kids. The state competition is the first Sunday of March or March 5th.

Basketball: All is going well. Teams are practicing and playing games. We need to give each coach a first aid kit. We need to develop a form to report an incidents or accident. Greg will ask Stu if he has a form to use. If not we can develop one and submit for approval.  Kids are enjoying the games and practice.
