Old Business

Santa’s Workshop- 

  • Went well.  Huge turnout.  Need to streamline process to improve flow.  Still considering prepurchasing items for next year and running it ourselves. Possibly going to rearrange layout of things to free up Cafeteria for only food, move vendors to Gym (allowing for possibly more vendors), and having separate entrance and exit doors for the kids’ shopping area

New Business
