2) We secured volunteers to work the concessions booth for the upcoming plays, we could use 1 more person for each of the 3 plays. The play dates and times are Friday March 31st at 7:00pm, Saturday April 1st at 1:00pm, and Saturday April 1st at 7:00pm.
3) Gerald will be contacting the Blood Center to get the ball rolling on our blood drive, more details to come. We normally do our blood drive the 1st week of May.
4) We discussed the possibility of having a family movie night.
5) We discussed inviting families to our 1st meeting next year and perhaps serving some red beans and rice or gumbo as a way to drive membership and also participation.
