Meeting Minutes: all approved meeting minutes from Jan 21, 2017 as amended.
YMCA updated their start up practice on March 28th. We need a flyer to send to parent on Monday Feb 27th for a March 2nd sign up day. Greg will reserve March 2nd with Betty at the school. We need to get the flyer done. Flyers will be used at school to encourage participation. We will also ask Stu to see if we can email it via email list form the town office. Elie will get the flyer done and circulate for approval and use.
5K Run: It is scheduled for April 1st. Last year Greg was able to solicit donations from stores for food. We will wait for the 5K committee to ask for our help if it is necessary
Jason found certificate and medals on line. He found Medals for $2.80 generic and paper certificate for free. Total cost for Medal awards is $80.00 for all players. The committee felt strongly on having the medals and the paper certificate to encourage future participation.
Motion to approve the spending of $80 for Medals. All voted in favor to approve the spending. Jason will take on ordering the Medals and printing the certificate then hand them over to the coaches.
All left over t-shirts to be saved for next season. We agreed to reprint the same print for the t shirt next season so we can use the left over shirts.
We need to develop a player roster for all events including basketball so we can re-invite players and know who is participating.
End of School Program:
We will schedule an end of school festivities at the school grounds on June 17th. we will have a BBQ sponsored by the recreation committee (donations will be accepted). We will host activities inside the GYM and outside in the field. The activities are as listed but not limited to
· Basketball 3 on 3 outside
· Slow Ride cycling
· Adult basketball pick-up game in the GYM
· Other activities are welcomed (as we see fit) or if we have volunteers to help execute.
We plan on marketing the day of festivities via
· School newsletter,
· PSA (Stu can help with that).
· Ask Elizabeth who to contact for Darlings Ice Cream Truck.
All plans should be finalized by May 14th
We need to do a better job in collecting names and addresses from parent and participants in activities to help us solicit next year or the next event participation.
Greg will ask Stu if we can have Lamoine Recreation committee email box through the town network.
